The patient may not realize that it is
her scratching that is causing the vulva and vagina to become sore and irritated, not the itching. These irritated and inflamed parts then begin to itch. The itching is secondary to the scratching, not the other way around. It however can cause the beginning of a vicious circle of scratching and itching and scratching again.
These changes may be due to old age when there is atrophy of the skin layers or due to long term irritation by uncomfortable clothes, allergy, autoimmune reactions and fungal infections.
