Maintain proper hygiene: Proper hygiene is essential in this area on good days, so when you are suffering from vaginal itch it’s imperative to pay attention and change your underwear daily, as well as taking daily showers or baths. A lot of people don’t know this, but the vagina is a self-cleaning organ―that means you don’t need to scrub particularly hard nor do you have to use strong soaps or body washes. In fact, to reduce the chance of infection or vaginal itches, it’s best to rub it smoothly when bathing and to also use soap with no fragrances. Now, even though hygiene is very important, excessive hygiene is no good either and washing your vagina too often and you are likely to cause more itching. To further reduce your chance of itching, when wiping after using the bathroom or even after a shower, wipe from front to back. That means, start with your vagina and move back to your anus.

Sometimes itching can be caused due to dehydration which is why it’s extremely important stay hydrated and drink lots of water throughout the day.

Loose clothing is another great way to prevent vaginal itching as it keeps your vagina cool and dry. Be sure to wear 100% cotton underwear so that your skin can breathe. If you have an office job or spend the majority of your time sitting, be sure to get up and walk around every hour at least, to prevent your vagina from getting to warm.

Apply ice or cold compress. Put ice or a cold compress on your vagina for immediate relief. The itching is most intense at night according to most women, so this is a good tool to have for those sleepless nights.

Use yogurt. Put some yogurt on a tampon and put it in your body for a couple of hours. Do this once or twice a day for a few days. You can also put some frozen yogurt on your vulva which has an immediate relieving affect against the itching.

Eat pro-biotic yogurt daily. Eat one cup of yogurt a day. Make sure it’s plain yogurt without any sugar and that it contains acidophilus cultures―this property helps fights against yeast infections and fungus.

Yogurt is another dietary cure that can provide you lasting relief from vaginal itching and burning. Applying yogurt topically to the vaginal area immediately soothes the burn and stops itching due to its healing enzymes. Including yogurt as a regular part of your diet can ward off vaginal infections, as it is full of good bacteria that balances Candida in the vagina.

You may not think of water as a home remedy, but sometimes your problem can be cured simply by drinking more water. Many people do not drink enough water, and the results of dehydration can be devastating. If you do not drink a sufficient amount of water, the delicate tissues of your vaginal region can become irritated and itchy, and sex can be painful as a result. Commit to drinking eight glasses of water a day to look and feel your best.
