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

I understand your concern.

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?

I will be waiting for your response to help you better.

Meanwhile, I recommend to maintain a good hygiene.

You should wash and dry frequently the area and use cotton underwear.

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