I am a 23 year old woman who had not had any sexual contact/intercourse for over a year. Nearly a month ago, my vagina began itching incessantly. There was no discharge or anything else out of the ordinary. I started a low carb, dairy free diet around the same time. I have began eating dairy again and the itching is not as severe but it is still present. I would like to stress that I am not sexually active.
What could be causing this, is it a yeast infection, even without discharge?
I went through that for a while. I felt like my discharge was itching me almost like I was allergic to it. Turns out I have allergic skin. White, bleached toilet paper was one problem. I was so itchy, that both my labias were red raw and the doctors called it puritis. It kind of is a viscious cycle. I'd get itchy scratch. Get the raw bleeding ski and so on. There are non-cortisone type creams to stop the itching. Blow drying yourself down there after a shower also helps. Take care. :)
