Several things: There are several things it could be but you are going to need to see a doctor to know for sure. Yeast is one possibility. Trying an over the counter yeast medication is reasonale. Allergic reaction to an irritant, herpes, vulvar vestibulitis, shingles are some others. This should not be hard to figure out for your doctor. Call and schedule to get help.
