Brief Answer:
Need not worry

Detailed Answer:
Hello thanks for posting the query

Do you have dry vagina?
Is there any foul smelling discharge or any curdy white discharge seen.

If no discharge only itching then need not worry much. you can apply the lubricating gel for 2 days to soothen the area.

Sanitizer would have destroyed the local epithelial bacteria, and cause more dryness of vaginal mucosa, which is the reason for itching.

Keep the private area clean, and well hydrated.

any issue do follow up

Take care.

Okay I will keep the area clean and lubricanted. I haven’t had any discharge just the itching, if discharge starts can I use anything over the counter until I get back on land? Basically this isn’t horrible and I’ll live?

Brief Answer:
Nothing to worry about life

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for the follow up.
As there is no discharge then chances of vagina infection is less. Take any antihistamin tablet to reduce the itching.

Nothing to worry about your life.
If still itching persists or increases then consult the doctor once you reach the land.

Take care.
