Itching in the vagina can be caused by several causes including bacterial or fungal infections, for example: bacterial vaginosis is usually a complaint in the form of itching in the vagina and discharge smelling, usually vaginal discharge is gray, can also be due to lack of cleanliness in the vaginal area, disease sexually transmitted can also cause complaints of itching in the vagina, this complaint arises if related without using a condom or changing sexual partners frequently, complaints can also be accompanied by pain when urinating, vaginal discharge is green or yellow and in some circumstances there are sores or lesions in pubic.
In the area where urination and unclean water sources can also be a place where bacteria live, if the bacteria settle in the vagina, it will cause infection. And basically, if the vagina secretes clear white liquid it is a normal thing, but if the liquid has changed colors such as brown, yellow, green, and even cause odor. It should be suspected of other causes, such as the presence of bacteria, or fungi and infections.
But to be more sure you should consult this to the doctor directly in order to get appropriate treatment, and if needed the doctor will conduct a supporting examination such as urine sampling.
Things you can do at home is not to scratch the vaginal area too hard, this will cause infection in the vaginal area, maintain vaginal hygiene, do not use special vaginal cleaning fluid, just use clean water, do not use tight pants, change underwear 2x a day, and change underwear if it is damp.
If complaints of itching in the vagina do not go away, and complaints of itching accompanied by pain in the waist, disruption during urination, fever, I recommend immediately to the doctor.
That is my answer, hopefully it helps
