Why is my vagina burning itching?

I haven t had sex in over a year, all of my STD tests came out negative last year. Do you think this could be yeast infection-related? THIS IS SERIOUS! I m not joking.

Burning and itchy vagina can be due to yeast infection.This might be associated with smelly and excessive vaginal discharge.You need to take anti bacterial and anti fungal drugs both togather in consultation with your doctor to get the relief.

Could be a variety of things. It's usually a yeast infection. The bacteria yeast are always living inside our bodies. Sometimes if your immune system becomes weak or if you have an imbalanced PH it can trigger the yeast population to explode. That's why it is common to get a yeast infection after a woman is taking antibiotics. You should have it checked out by a doctor regardless. It could be vaginitis. This is a general term for any bacterial infection. Regardless you should have it checked out by your doctor. Oh and don't use antibacterial soaps. It can only make your situation unbearable take it from me!
