Vaginal Itching

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?

Are you using sented products?  

Douching?  

If this persists, you should definitely consult your GYN Specialist as this could be a number of things.

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. :)

I am not douching but I do use a scented body wash, it never really bothered me before though. I have been conscious of where I use it now, though.

Well....I would recommend you used nothing scented in that area and use a soap without added fragrance, etc.,  i.e. Aveeno, Dove.  

Have you changed your laundry detergent?  

I would recommend consulting your GYN Specialist to follow this up if this doesn't subside.
