Hello I’m 15 years old and my vagina is really itchy

Patient: Hello I’m 15 years old and my vagina is really itchy what do I do

 

 

Doctor: Hello,Thank you for your query at AskTheDoctor.comI 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
