vaginal itching and irritation

hi
   i have vaginal itching and irritation most of the time.. is it because of any disease or infection ? or could it be because of mastrubation ? do i need to consult doctor or is there any other home remedy? could it be because of dryness ? i have vaginal discharge most of the days could it be because of that?

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.
