‘Erm,it’s a bit... per­sonal’ Pri­vate itch

Chat - - Health -

Q The skin around my vag­ina is con­stantly itchy. What’s wrong? He­len, Mid­dles­brough A Could be an in­fec­tion such as thrush, in­flamed skin af­ter shav­ing, a psy­cho­log­i­cal or sex­ual prob­lem or a few rarer causes. Wear loose cot­ton undies, avoid soap in that area, try a thrush treat­ment, and see your GP if it doesn’t clear.
