In brief: Yes

Vaginal itching without discharge can indicate infections like yeast or stis like herpes or an allergic reaction to household products like certain soaps & laundry detergents.
Some skin conditions liked lichen sclerosis can cause vaginal itching. Testing and exam is key. Over the counter Prevaleaf Soothe is a great product for this common problem. A biopsy can help make the diagnosis.
