There can be several reasons for this. Your doctor will need to have a look to make the right determination.
Did you shave down there recently? That can cause an insane itch because the hair is starting to grow back. If not, definitely go to a doctor.
Do you have any type of infections down there, like a yeast or bacterial?
If you want, try avoiding scented or perfumed soaps while washing.
Vaginal itches are common, so I’d look up about it more before jumping to conclusions and seeing if anything helps first. If not, go to a doctor.

I mean.. Don’t go to a doctor unless you’ve tried something first.
I agree with Monica that you need to try to tackle this problem on you own first…UNLESS you start developing other symptoms such as pain in your lower abdomen.
It sounds like a yeast infection to me. In nearly all supermarkets or drugstores they will have products for yeast infection… give this a try… just be sure to follow the instructions that are on the box.
Another thing you can do that might help: Use a mixture of applecider vinegar mixed with half water…use a clean washcloth and clean your vagina as good as possible…this usually helps the itching and kills some of the bacteria as well.
