Genital itch

For about a year now, I've noticed later on in the evening and occasionally in the early morning I start to have a really bad itch in my genital area. This itchiness is never right around my vaginal opening, just the skin right above and around my clitoris and inside and on my labias. This skin is often inflamed and swollen from scraching the skin that is itching that I often can't ignore. Sometimes I break skin because it's so dry. I've tried using unscented lotion to get rid of the dryness but this doesn't seem to take away the itch. Ocansionally I will use a vaginal itch cream to get rid of the itch but this does not completely solve the problem. I have not consulted a doctor basically out of embarrassment. If anyone has any idea what this could be and some possible treatments, please let me know!
