The vagina is an elastic, yet muscular canal, upper part of the vagina connects to the cervix, which opens into the uterus, and the lower part opens to the outside of the body. It lies between the urethra, which connects to the bladder and the rectum.
During sexual intercourse, the vagina lengthens, widens and engorges with blood as it prepares to accept the penis. Additionally, the vagina serves as a passageway for cervical mucus, menstrual fluid and other secretions out of the body. During childbirth, the baby is pushed from the uterus out of the body, also through the vaginal canal.
Vulvitis is inflammation of the skin of the vulva, external genitals of the female which causes swelling, soreness, itching, redness and sometimes weeping. Small painful, splits and ulcers may also develop in the inflamed skin, causing it to sting when wet by washing or urine. Itching of the external genitals is particularly miserable on scratching these parts. It is also more likely to be harmful, as on scratching, the worse things become.
CAUSES ; Vulvitis itch may be caused by local infection, allergy, physical or chemical injury or lack of oestrogen. Or it may be part of generalised skin inflammations such as eczema and HIVS. Itch due to thrush and trichomoniasis is often associated with vaginitis inflammation of the vaginal from these causes. When both vagina and vulva are affected the condition is called vulvo vaginitis. Other infections that may cause vulva itch include public lice, the early and healing stages of genital herpes simplex, and occasionally genital warts. Lack of oestrogen after the menopause can lead to atrophy vulvitis-thinning, drying and inflammation of genital skin which causes relentless itching and makes the vulva skin more susceptible to infection. Allergy should always be suspected when there is no evidence of infection or atrophy. Causes include feminine hygiene products including douches, soap, ingredients, bubble baths, bath salts and oils, laundry detergents, spermicides, condom rubber or lubricants and even the dye from coloured toiled paper. Food and drugs that bring out allergic rashes can also affect genital skin. Tight trousers and sanitary pads may cause vulvitis and itch.
