See your doctor: You could be having a reaction to something you have come into contact with, (change in hygiene or laundry product), or a yeast infection. It is best to see your doctor to make sure it is nothing serious, and he/she will most likely prescribe a steroid cream to treat it unless it is an infection, then you will need antibiotics.
