Hello dear and welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service. I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

The most common cause of itching in the genital area is yeast infection.

More details are needed to help me through the diagnosis.

How long do you have the itching?

Are you sexually active?

Do you have any other symptoms such as white discharge, rash, or a fishy odor in the area?

Have you used any medication to relieve the symptoms?

You can over the counter option like Miconazole cream for local application to relieve the itching.
