i am 62 years old and i have an itch on the outside of my vagina and going towards the back passage but not itchy internal just external i have been given two creams trimovate and dacacort and they do not work could the menopause cause that. the itch is driving me nuts.
This does not seem to be related to menopause. Fungal infection, dryness, allergy can be the reasons. Apart from applying creams, keeping the area clean and dry will help. Consult a gynaecologist for an examination.
Hope this helps.
