Pruritis vulvae has numerous causes including sensitivity to soaps and perfumes, incorrect wiping methods, diabetes, infections, general skin itch due to medications etc. It is best to consult with your doctor so that the cause can be determined, but the following can be helpful to prevent pruritis vulvae in future:
wear white cotton underwear
wipe from front to back after using the bathroom. use plain non coloured toilet paper
do not use soap in your intimate parts. also do not use rough and vigorous cleansing methods. Make sure you dry the area off properly but gently using a separate clean towel. Taking a shower will also be better than bathing.
Eat plain yogurt and take a probiotic
