Itchy vagina, smelly vaginal secretions. Is it normal?

I ve been experiencing a vaginal itch for a while now and I was hoping someone can shed some light on what my problem is. I surfed around the net for vaginal itching but everything I found states symptoms of vaginal itching and abnormal/smelly secretions. I ve got the itch but no abnormal secretions. Is that good or bad?

Common causes of vaginal itching include:

Chemical irritants such as detergents, fabric softeners, feminine sprays, ointments, creams, douches, and contraceptive foams or jellies.
Menopause. A drop in the hormone estrogen causes vaginal dryness.
Stress may increase vaginal itching and make you more susceptible to infections.
Vaginal yeast infection
