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