iTCHY VAGINA

I am 48 years old (married) going through menopause (for about 1 year now)  For nearly 2 months I have been suffering from external vagina itchiness in the direction of the anus as well,  its only when I wash I find I need to really scrub the area so will be the itch, after washing I am ok, do not itch during the day, only if I wee and do not wipe dry dry, have never ever had any diseases of any nature eg STDs I have no discharge or anything like that. It used to happen before I used to get my period or when I used to ovulate they go away..now that I am not getting a period it seems to be permanently there..I have not had a period for 3 whole months..prior to that my period was on and off and very light some months..

This could be a vaginal infection or fungus. Yeast will react in this way, especially if you eat foods with sugar. I would check with my OB Gyn to make sure it is nothing critical. Your husband may be giving it to you also. Check in with your Dr.

I'm 52 and I have had exactly the same problem for seven months.  I do not have a discharge and there is no unpleasant odour.  It's extremely irritating, mostly at night.  I use vagisil but it does little to help.
