dear user
itching and painful in vulva occurs because of various causes. possibilities are

1. bacteria, yeasts, viruses, and other parasites infection
2. various chemicals found in bubble baths, soaps, and perfumes.
3. poor hygiene during menstruation .

is there any discharge from vagina ?
if it than what kind of it is ?
colour ?
smell of discharge ?

as you are virgin and not masturbate not having discharge high possibility is that came in contact with some chemical substance may be because of change in soap . bubble wash .

kindly clear me your query according to my question.

any smoothening lotion
for itching can take cetirizine 10 mg at night time .

it would be helful to you .
