Vaginal itching

Hi everyone, I have a recurring problem with vaginal itching. It doesn't happen often but has happened enough that I am wondering what might be causing it. I don't have any discharge just a sudden burning and itching. It usually goes away after a day or so but in the mean time it is very uncomfortable. I'm not sure what, if anything, I can do about it. Any ideas?

I wonder if it's just an allergy to something.  Maybe soap, detergent, lubricant, something you are eating/drinking.  Do you notice any pattern?  Any relation to your menstrual cycle?  I had the same symptoms when using latex condoms and that's how I found that I have a latex allergy.  It doesn't sound like an infection since it does go away.  If it's happening every week or two, you may want to get checked out just to rule out something more serious.
