Hi Stephb,

My first thought was to rule out an infection of some kind, maybe a low level yeast or bacterial infection can cause vaginal itching.

My other thought was about your hormone status, any change in hormones? Birth control, perimenopause, menopause? Lower levels of estrogen in the vagina can also cause itching and burning and supplementing the vagina/vulva with hormones can be really helpful.

I might also consider switching lubricants, and see if that changes anything for you.

Hope this helps.
