Itching or Burning

Itching and burning is another BV symptom, though they're not as common as a "fishy" smell and watery discharge of a gray or white color. Itching may occur at any point during the infection, while burning due to BV generally occurs during urination.1‘Bacterial Vaginosis.’ Mayo Clinic, 1 May 2019, mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/bacterial-vaginosis/symptoms-causes/syc-20352279

An itching or burning around the outside of the vagina also mimics symptoms of other conditions, so even if this is the only symptom, it is best to get it checked out to resolve the discomfort and treat whatever is happening.
