why am i constantly itching in my vaginal area and i am not having sex or mastubating. i have scratched so much that one side of my vagina has swollen should i go to the doc or get something over the counter to cure it
One common cause would be a mild yeast imbalance. You should probably go to the doc and be checked for yeast. Diflucan is a very effective tablet by Rx. Or take Azo-Yeast, 2 pills a day while reducing dietary sugar and carbs and increasing vegetables. Use a very mild soap, like unscented Dove. You could use a topical yeast medicine, but they have ingredients that irritate a lot of women.
