Why does my vagina itch?

There are a number of reasons your vagina might itch. Skin disorders, infections, STDs, even a razor burn can cause discomfort. But if you’re healthy — and not the victim of a cheap razor — it’s probably nothing to worry about. It could, in fact, be merely a symptom of growing older. When estrogen levels drop during perimenopause and after menopause, so do moisture levels in the skin — including the skin of your vulva (that’s the area outside your vagina). When skin is dry, it can feel itchy.

It’s important that you speak with your doctor if you’re experiencing vaginal itching that’s disrupting your daily life, has been going on for a while, or is accompanied by other symptoms. If there’s not a medical reason for the issue, a vaginal moisturizer can help.

Frontline relief from vulvar and vaginal itching

Invest in a high-quality vaginal moisturizer

Look for ingredients like hyaluronic acid, which retains moisture, and vitamin E, which has antioxidant properties.

Avoid dyes and scents

The dyes and scents in wipes, detergents, and feminine wash can irritate sensitive vulvar skin.

Skip the soap

Soap can be harsh on intimate and mature skin, so use clean water only when you wash the inner parts of your vulva.
