Feminine issues- itching and burning, help!

So... it itches on the inside and my urethra burns. I've been having the burning issue for the last 4 years on and off. It started when I first had sex, I got BV. After that was cured I've been having on and off UTI's. Its not a yeast infection. Any ideas what this might be?

  • Tips to home care for vaginal itching include:

    1. Keep your genital area clean and dry. Use plain, unscented soap.
    2. Avoid colored or perfumed toilet tissue and bubble bath.
    3. Wear cotton panties or pantyhose with a cotton crotch. Avoid panties made from synthetic materials. For infants and toddlers, change diapers often.
    4. Change out of wet clothing, especially wet bathing suits or exercise clothing, as soon as possible.
    5. Avoid feminine hygiene sprays and douches.
    6. Eat yogurt with live cultures or take lactobacillus acidophilus tablets when using antibiotics. Check with your doctor.
    7. Cleanse by wiping or washing from front to back (vagina to anus) after urinating or having a bowel movement.
    8. Lose weight if you are over weight.
    9. Keep your blood sugars under good control if you have diabetes.

  • It is also helpful to:

    1. Avoid scratching, which will only aggravate the problem.
    2. Avoid overexertion, heat, and excessive sweating.
    3. Delay sexual activity until your symptoms get better or at least use a lubricant during intercourse.
    4. Use condoms to avoid catching or spreading sexually transmitted diseases.
