Itching around outer part of Vagina
I have been experiencing, more often than not, itching only around the outer parts of my vagina. It's worse at night, I wake up scratching and it even bleeds. My gynie has given me creams for thrush although I doubt this is the cause as I don't have itching/burning or weird discharge INSIDE. I have even had creams such as mylocort and other cortisone creams. I have changed my washing powder, use frangrance free soap but it doesn't help. The skin has gone all leathery and dry. It has now started on the top area where the folds in my buttocks starts and the skin is very hard there.

It could be a skin problem. Consider seeing a dermatologist.
