Symptom #2: Pruritus

Pruritus or itching is a feeling where the affected individual has a desire to scratch. It has been demonstrated to have many similarities to pain, which is also a sensory and unpleasant experience. While pain results in a withdrawal reflex, itching leads to a scratching reflex. Scratching has always been a method to relieve oneself of the itch sensation.

Some of the causes of itching includes allergy, body louse infestation, cutaneous larva migrans, herpes, insect bites, photodermatitis, scabies, presence of foreign objects, urticaria, dandruff, psoriasis, eczema, and many more. In vulvar cancer, the itching is on the vulva and is persistent without going away.
