Brief Answer:
Vaginal fungal infection likely.

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
Thanks for posting your query.
The itching and white flaky patch that you have is likely to be due to a fungal infection. This can be ruled out only be performing a detailed examination.
This typically presents with the symptoms that you have described. This can be treated with antifungal agents like miconazole. You can use a vaginal pessary like Gyno Daktarin once a day for 2 weeks. Please follow the instructions on the package carefully.
It is also important to keep your private parts scrupulously clean. Trimming your pubic hair, not using any soap to wash your vagina and keeping the area clean and dry will help.

I hope this answers your query.
In case you have additional questions or doubts, you can forward them to me, and I shall be glad to help you out.
