Persistent vaginal and anal itching
Over the past couple of months I've been having a constant itching in the vaginal and anal area. At first I thought this was due to shaving, but it refused to go away. When the area comes into contact with water it burns and from constant rubbing and friction two small open wounds have developed at the back. Any advice on treatment or what the cause could be?

It could be thrush. Try CAnesten but, if this does not help, you should see your doctor.
