Hi,
Welcome to ehealthforum,
The symptoms could be suggestive of possibility of infection, inflammation, chemical irritation etc. Consider visiting your doctor/gynecologist for further evaluation to look for the underlying cause. Treatment as appropriate (based on examination findings and investigation results) would be started to help you. Avoid vaginal douching, use of harsh soap or perfumes in the area (vagina has its own mechanism of cleaning itself. Use of these products harms the normal bacteria of vagina and it becomes susceptible to infection). Use loose cotton undergarments and avoid tight fitting clothes (make sure your undergarments are washed properly and have no traces of detergent in them). Drink plenty of water. Take adequate rest. Maintain healthy diet and lifestyle.
Take care.
