What does it mean if you get vaginal itching a couple days before and a couple days after your period and how do you treat it?

You may have a slight yeast infection or it could be an increase

in moisture in that area. Try some over the counter yeast cream. If

you wear nylon, satin or silk underwear, that may also cause

increased moisture. You might try all cotton underwear and

unscented feminine products. Also, if you are a panty liner user,

keep them changed regularly as the plastic underside of them can

cause itchiness. It is a good idea, too, to use unscented and

uncolored toilet paper.
