Hi I am a 24 year old female I've been

Patient

Q: Hi. I am a 24 year old female. I've been having this problem for about 5 months now. i've been experiencing vulvar itching.i notice this each time that I have a eczema flare up that normally appears on my neck and earlobe. I use a 1% hydrocortisone cream and it helps but after few days of not using the cream the vulvar itching comes back. I dont know if I have a infection because I dont have any foul smelling discharge or burning down there just itching but its affecting my sex life. Intercourse is uncomfortable because it burns at the entrance at vaginal opening and stings if it get in contact with the semen. I'm on oral contraceptive now and maybe that is causing me to be dry down there but the itching is unbareable. please help me....
