I am 11 years old. I am on my period. My vagina hurts and itches during the period. Why?
Welcome to icliniq.com.
At the young age of 11, itching around the time of periods may be just minor infection. Usual infections are respiratory infection or urinary infection.
If you have any respiratory infection, suppose you cough into hands later if you wash your genitals with same hands after using the wash room. This will transmit the infection to vaginal area, and you get itching around area. Same is with urinary infection.
When you have periods, the vascularity of the vagina and surrounding area is increased. When the vascularity increases the infection flares up, and you get itching.
Another possibility is just skin dryness.
