  • Vaginitis


    Yeast infections usually cause the vagina and the vulva to be very itchy and red. ... Other factors that can upset the delicate balance include pregnancy, which changes hormone levels, and diabetes, ... Occasionally, a woman can have itching, burning and even a vaginal discharge without having an infection

  • The pH of the vagina changes in pregnancy and these changes can cause local irritation, redness and itching. To lower vaginal pH, you might try baking soda baths.

  • I actually had the same problem a few weeks ago. I think the no discharge was the part that made it super itchy! Sounds gross but everyone gets something like that sometime. I actually put some lube down there and it helped tons, it went away after a few days...

  • I used the super strong anti itch medication and wipes.....they burned at first, but I think it was because I scratched it so much. But after that it felt numb...and I'd say after a few days it was gone.

  • By any chance are you using panty liners? I started using panty liners because I was having heavy discharge and the panty liners caused me to get a rash. It was very itchy. Took about 1 week to clear up after I realized it was the liners.

    I would mention it to your OB though because you can have other infections other than yeast.
