Hello and thanks for trusting me to help you today. I look forward to working with you.

Is the itching inside the vagina?

Do you have discharge from the vagina?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

Yes the itching goes on to outer vagina but there is no discharge.

Have you seen your gynecologist for a pelvic exam? Did they test for yeast in the vagina or bacterial vaginosis?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

The doctor had a good look and said it all looked inflamed and sore but I've had no tests.

Expert:  Dr. Y. replied 3 years ago.
Well this is likely the source of your symptoms. You need to see your doctor again for an exam and they should consider prescribing an anti fungal like Diflucan. They may need to give you Flagyl as well if they think you have bacterial vaginosis. Hope this helps.
