Yeast: This sounds classic for yeast infection. Soaps, sprays and cleansers won't help, you may need an antifungal such as one that's available over the counter at your local grocery or drugstore. It's also possible that you have bacterial vaginosis, which is overgrowth of normal vaginal bacteria. See a doctor or start with antifungal and see if that helps. Stop all sprays, creams = could make worse.
