Brief Answer:
It may be due to yest infection

Detailed Answer:
Hi dear and thanks for your query to healthcare magic.

I have read your question carefully and understand your health concern.

Vaginal itching can be due to any skin issue but while you are using nitrofurantoini ,vaginal itching can be due to yeast infection.
Use of antibiotics such as Nitrofurantoini can cause yeast infection.
Hence to verify if you have or not yeast infection you should see your gynecologist.
Until you will go to your gynecologist you can try with Monistat cream for 5 to 7 days You can buy it without any prescription.
