4. Why do I itch down there?
First of all, if you do itch down there, it isn’t necessarily a yeast infection. Yes, it could be, but there are other potential reasons you constantly want to scratch your crotch (sorry to be blunt). You could have skin sensitivity to your soap or laundry detergent, you could be wearing underwear fabric that irritate your skin, you could have an STD or a bacterial infection, or it could be something more serious like an early sign of vulvar cancer. Better safe that sorry…get yourself checked out and get rid of that itch, stat. We know you may be embarrassed to tell your doctor but the act of scratching yourself has to be worse than seeking help from a doctor, right?
