vaginal itching

I have had this iching for the past yr and a half. I am not prone to yeast infections. I do not have any burning of urination. I do shave my vaginal area. The itching occurs on the inside of my lip area.
I have used vagisil gel for the icthing which does help until it gone. Is there anything else that I could or should do?

You should see your doctor.  It might be from shaving, but it could also be bacterial vaginosis or an allergic reaction to something.  It could also be an std.

If you can rule out infection causes, then you can look at what you use to shave, or maybe trimming instead of shaving, etc.
