Vulvar Pain, Burning, and Itching

Pain, burning and itching anywhere on the body can cause discomfort, but when it occurs in the sensitive area in and around the vagina and vulva (the labia, clitoris, and vaginal opening), it can be particularly uncomfortable.

Most vulvar pain, burning and itching isn’t a major concern, but according to New Beginning’s OB-GYN, Dr. Rania Ibrahim, it can be a symptom of an infection, so it’s always a good idea to have a checkup.

Vulvar Pain, Burning, and Itching

There are several typical causes of vulvar pain, burning and itching that include:

  • Bacterial vaginosis;
  • Sexually transmitted disease (STDs);
  • Menopause;
  • Chemical irritants;
  • Lichen sclerosis.

Vaginal irritation will often improve on its own. However, if the irritation continues, becomes more severe, or returns after treatment, call for an appointment with your OB-GYN.

How she treats you vulvar pain, burning and itching depends on what condition is causing the problem. 

  • Vaginosis and STDs are treated using a combination of antibiotics/antiparasitics;
  • Yeast infections are typically treated with antifungal medications;
  • Itching related to menopause may be treated with estrogen cream, tablets, or a vaginal ring insert.
