Environment: It's likely that it's something related to summer activities or heat. Maybe swimming? Maybe different products you use for hygeine in summer? Sometimes if women sweat or swim and don't shower right away, this can cause irritation. Maybe you're more dehydrated? Possibly it's a yeast infection in the summer. Are there changes in your diet in summer? Lots to think about, i know!

You will have to : Actually have this evaluated for an accurate diagnosis. However many women get more frequent yeast infections in the heat of summer. Take care.
