Welcome to HealthcareMagic Forum. This kind of itch can occur in normal healthy females after periods and sometimes can be associated with a yeast infection. This can also occur in cases of allergy as well. You need to get yourself checked with a gynecologist. Only after a proper check up a diagnosis can be made and the further treatment also will depend on this.Wish you good health.

Welcome to Healthcare magic forum
Soon after menses, vagina become a little dry. May be the dryness is causing the itch, and burning. If you have any discharge espcially with some smell, it suggests an infection , for which medication will be required.
Drink plenty of water, wash after urination (front to back) , cotton panties only, if you are sexually active check if the condom is not causing irritation.
