Your symptoms culd be suggestive of vaginitis which is an inflammation and can be due to any infection,allergy etc.
Wear loose cotton undies.
Avoid scratching,intercourse,tampoon use,bubble bath.
Wash the area twice with Tea tree oil mixed in water.
Apply neosporin powder and calamine lotion.
If the symptoms worsen consider visiting a Gynaecologist for evaluation.
