Patient

Q: For about 6 months I have been suffering with an itchy vagina. I used to use feminine sprays to cover up a smell and I think this is when my itching started so I stopped using them straight away. Since then I have had constant itching and have tried over the counter products to try and cure it but nothing has worked. I have noticed the itching is at its worse when I am about 1 week away from starting my period and also for about the 1 week after my period has finished and then it usually starts again during ovulation so it never really stops. I have a swollen, red, itchy vulva and a watery discharge or sometimes the discharge is thick and white. Due to the itch I have scratched the area and I have managed to scar myself but it seemed like the only way I got any relief. Can you please help me?
