Why do I have vaginal itching?

All sorts of things can cause itch. Everyday things like detergents, pads and liners, pubic area hair removal, friction, sweat, tight clothing, and hormonal changes can cause itching. Intense itching is often a symptom of a yeast infection or other common vulvovaginal infections such as Bacterial Vaginosis (BV) or Trichomoniasis. If you think an infection may be causing itching, speak with your healthcare professional for proper treatment of the underlying infection. Vagisil® cremes and wipes can help stop the itching instantly, so you feel relief as you get treatment for the infection.
