If the itching and swelling is driving you crazy, you can try a cold compress.  Crush some ice and put it in a cloth and place this directly on the affected parts.  This will cause a constriction in the blood vessels and lessen the inflammation.  This is a good home remedy for bacterial vaginal infections.
