Masturbation can be irritating, especially if you're dry.  Lube should help if that's the problem.  Vaginal itching, especially if it's extreme, is usually indicative of a yeast infection.  Yeast infections generally (but not always) come with thick, white, "cottage cheese" discharge.  You should see a doctor, since they can test for a yeast infection and anything else that could cause irritation.  Also, don't douche.  Your vagina is a self-cleaning organ, and douching screws up the process and the pH inside.
