can cysts cause itching?

I have i guess whats called polycystic ovarian syndrome( lots of cyst in or on my ovary) but the only problem i had from that which i was diagnosed like 3 years ago was not having a period and having to be on BC pills. For the past 8 months i have this mostly external and right around my clytoris vaginal itching that can go on constant then stop for awhile. I'm a college student and i've gone to student health and they haven't found any thing with the tests. I'm wondering could i have anything to do with my have cyst plus it's worst after i go to the bathroom like it gets even more irritated. Dr. told my to use aveeno soap down there and creams but those are only temporary. Could it be something serious like HIV and they just haven't tested for that? I assumed they know my symptom is itching and occasional odor so they would test everything they think it could be. Now i am really worried and all i can think about is that i have something serious and i'm dying :-( i know it sounds crazy but i'm kinda on my own here and don't know what else to do Please help

Re: can cysts cause itching?

That's funny I have PCOS too, and also have that kinda itching, drives me nuts right before i am going to sleep. last july i was in the emergency room with a burst ovarian cyst and they tested me for everything under the sun! So i know i dont have any STD's. Maybe it is just a PCOS thing? I am also a college student and was actually diagnosed with PCOS and Hypothyroidism after no periods for 3 months at my health clinic. I wouldnt worry too much about it, but maybe you should ask for some std tests? I know at my college then run some for free. Maybe just to put your mind at ease?
