Intense pubic itching after going to bed, difficulty in sleeping. Is this alarming?

I am a 17 year old girl, the problem is every night when i go to bed my pubic parts gets really itchy, i cant even go to sleep because of that and it really gets me worried now. As this is not something i can discuss in public i want to know what is the reason for this, is it some kind of disease or is it just normal? I usually shave it every 2-3 months using a new clean razor and i was wandering should i trim the hair or use a hair removal cream because this is getting serious now, it is been like 3-4 weeks i am having this problem. Thanks

Thanks for your query

You stop using razor blade because it inflicts microcuts which later on get infected and cause severe itching. At present you can opt for trimming and later on when the skin is completely healthy , you can use creams. Also take special care of hygiene of that area. Use good antibacterial soap.If the problem does not subside, you may need some antibacterial creams and antibiotics. It will help you.

Best of luck and take care...

Hope it helps you..
