Here at DiscovHER HEALTH, we care about treating women with GENITAL ITCHING.

Most women assume that all genital itching is due to a yeast (Candida/thrush) infection. Although itching is a frequent symptom of Candida infections, it is important to have a proper evaluation to rule out other causes.

What is Genital Itching?

Genital itching in women refers to itching in the female genital area. Occasional itching is common and may be normal. Persistent itching is not normal and can interfere with daily living; it is important to find the cause of the itch so that you can be given the right treatment.

Persistent itch can be due to prolonged rubbing and scratching, or an underlying skin condition.

As this damage tissue heals it becomes thicker, itches more, and an ‘itch-scratch cycle’ is set up.

Causes of Genital Itching

Skin disease e.g. eczema/ dermatitis, psoriasis, and other less common skin disorders such as lichen sclerosus

Irritation from sweat, tight clothing, or personal hygiene products (soaps, detergents, spermicides)

Genital infections e.g. bacterial vaginosis, trichomoniasis
