Q: Hello I'm 15 years old and my vagina is really itchy what do I do

Doctor

A:   Hello,
Thank you for your query at AskTheDoctor.com

I understand your concern.
Vagina can be itchy due to a lot of reasons such as a local bacterial infection, poor local hygiene, bacterial vaginosis, or fungal infections.
You need to get it examined by a Dermatologist to confirm the diagnosis.
Most commonly, it is due to a fungal infection, for which you can take Tab. Fluconazole 150 mg one single dose, which is enough to reduce the itching and irritation.

Hope this was helpful.
Regards
