User avatar Hi,
Don't be afraid to see your doctor. I don't know what is causing it but itching is rarely a sign of a serious condition and is usually something very treatable. No point in being miserable if you can get help. Please schedule an appointment for a correct diagnosis. Meanwhile, use good hygiene, perhaps even regular sitz baths and use only cotton underwear. Good luck.
