Since about a week or two, I've had itching located to my right outer labia, that's generally occuring right after or a few minutes after showering. It then goes away on its own but sometimes only after a few minutes. It is bothersome.

There are no itching other than around that precise location, I tried changing soap anyway to see if that would change anything but the itching persists.

I haven't noticed any changes to my vaginal discharge nor any strong smell or anything like that.

There are also no visible lesion where the itching occurs but there is a transparent liquid snoozing out of the place where the itching occurs.

Any idea of what it could be ? Or at least any idea of what I could do to relieve the itchiness whithout increasing my risk of getting a vaginal infection ?

I'd appreciate to have an answer, even if that's just to say that no one knows.

My apologies this got missed, cool.

With oozing and itching alike, I would see your sexual healthcare provider about this. And in the meantime, I'd just treat it gently, and perhaps also apply some 100% aloe vera to the area, then try and keep it dry.

Okay, thanks a lot.

Would you think polysporin would work too ?

My personal approach with things like this is to go for the natural first, but if that isn't yours, yes, I think that'd be fine, too.
