Itchy skin during periods. No STD. Treatment?

Every time I get my period, my skin down there becomes really itchy. It s very uncomfortable, and I assume that I scratch in my sleep because the skin will be totally raw and red when I wake up. This usually lasts throughout my period and for a couple days afterwards. I know it s not an STD because I m still a virgin , but it s starting to freak me out. I get really dry down there too. And I always wear underwear to bed.
