Hi XXXXXXX
Thanks for writing in.
There could be a number of causes of itchy & inflammed vagina. Most likely due to some infection but rarely some local trauma may cause such problem.
In pregnancy commonest infection is a fungal one which can easily be cured by using local anti-fungal preparations. However before trying anything best is to visit a Gynecologist, get yourself examined to rule out other possibilities like sexually transmitted infections.
Usually fungal infections & most other infections can be diagnosed by inspection alone bur if your doctor is in doubt he/ she may take some swab tests to confirm the diagnosis.
Hope I have given you the desired response. Please write back if you have any question.
Take care.
