Why have I gotten so itchy after masturbating?

So I’ve been getting really itchy after masturbation and I’m not sure why. At first I thought it might have been a yeast infection but I’m not so sure. I get itchy more so up front or on the lips of my vagina not like inside or on the clit so much and it tends to be later not immediately after. I think Ive been masturbating more lately so could that be a reason? I wash my hands before to makes sure I’m not putting dirty hands up there and I use a plain dove hand soap and rinse really well. I’ve been using a topical cream to help with the itch but I really want this to stop. Any ideas to why this is happening and how to stop it??

It might be the hand soap, or your hands might not be getting as clean as you think they are.  Try getting a hand soap known for being gentle and hypo-allergenic, and buy a nail brush and scrub under your nails when you wash your hands. Not only should your keep your hands scrupulously clean for this kind of activity, you should also take a sitzbath and wash your lady parts as well.
