i use to have the same issue not trying to be funny but when you wash do you dry the area really well. sometimes if its not dry it can cause you to itch. also as a relief i would get in the shower and use my detachable shower head make the water as hot as i can stand and just let it sit on there until the itching stopped and then i would just pat it dry. also this might be tmi but when you pee and wipe do you wipe or just let the tissue soak up the urine. try just letting the tissue soak up the urine because i found that toilet paper makes me itchy if it touches the inside of my vagina. hope these things help you out.

Ever since second trimester same thing here. I believe for me it is my toilet paper, I have become very sensitive to it.  Having to pee 100x's a day and the wiping does irritate tons.

I'm 38 weeks and have become very sensitive to toilet paper too. I started using cottonelle wet wipes they have helped.

 a hot bath should help however when the vagina is irritated(at least mines) soap makes it worse so i wouldnt put anything in the water or wash up in the water if you need to wash up i would shower then soak in a tubn of plain water. i just gave birth on 5-13-14 and i had diarrhea the entire time i was preggo it was my morning sickness instead of vomiting so i think that is a new norm i hope you get some relief soon if men only knew

oh since your shower head doesnt come off you can get a squirt bottle and fill it with hot water and spray it on yourself i did that when i didnt have one
