Thanks for your query.

An irritated clitoris could be due to vaginal dryness or an infection.

After one attains menopause, there will be a lot of hormonal changes in a woman which leads to vaginal dryness as well as infections.This could present with sores, pain , itching and discomfort on activity.

You must get an XXXXXXX examination done from a Gynecologist.

Tests like blood counts, urine routine and microscopy,blood sugar may be suggested.

Here are a few things which could help you

1.Do not wash the area with soap or other cosmetic preparations .Use plain water or Lactacyd feminine hygiene liquid if available.(you can discuss this option with your doctor)
2.Wear loose cotton undergarments
3.Increase the intake of water to 3 to 5 lts a day
4.You may discussing the options of Estrogen creams for vaginal dryness with you gynecologist.
5.Take Tab.IBUPROFEN for pain relief if you experience too much pain.
6.If it is an infection , suitable antibiotics will be needed for a week or more.
