Welcome to ehealthforum,
The symptoms could be suggestive of irritation, inflammation or infection. It is difficult to comment on the exact cause without examining you. Consider visiting your doctor/gynecologist for further examination and evaluation to look for the underlying cause. Treatment as appropriate (based on examination and investigation results) would be started to help you. Drink plenty of water. Take adequate rest. Maintain healthy diet and lifestyle. If infection is detected, get your partner also treated simultaneously to prevent re-infection and avoid having intercourse while being on treatment course. Avoid vaginal douching, use of harsh soap or perfumes in the area. Use loose cotton undergarments and avoid tight fitting clothes.
