Hello and thanks for your question.
It's my first priority to help you.

Urinary specific gravity is a measure of the concentration of solutes in the urine.

Urine specific gravity in the range of 1.000 to 1.030 is considered normal.

Your gravity is within normal range.

So it's fine.

Mild itch on genital can be associated with dryness,fungal infection.

So you should try OTC Zeasorb powder AF.

Also wear loose cotton garments.

Avoid sweating and moisture.

If you had history of unprotected sex then see your doctor for STD panel,urinalysis and clinical exam.

Feel free for further queries. It's good to discuss rather than quit.
