Possible Herpes: Vulvar ulcers are often a symptom of genital herpes. Physical examination and a culture are necessary to confirm this.

Ulcers on Labia: Panty liners certainly can cause vulvar irritation and itching. Did you change brands recently? Herpes can start out as itchy blisters and usually turns into extremely painful ulcers when the blisters rupture. There is a blood test for herpes 1 and 2--both can cause ulcers. See your doctor asap to get a diagnosis.
