For about a year I have had vaginal itching. But the past two months it has gotten realy bad. I am now so sore and tender that it hurts to sit down and even my clothes hurts it. I have no discharge or odor. I am a vigin so there is mo chance of STD. What could be causing this realy bad itching?
You may have a vaginal yeast infection even if you've never had intercourse. I'd advise you to go to a provider to be checked right away since your symptoms have been going on for so long. In the meantime you can try some over-the-counter yeast cream to put on the outside so you don't hurt so much. This is a problem that lots of women have and fortunately, it can be taken care of very easily.
Hope this helps!
