Simplify: You could have cytolytic vaginosis which is a condition where the normal bacterial flora in the vagina are shifted. Things like douching or soaps can lead to this. Watching with warm water only, wearing cotton underwear, avoiding tight pants and sitting with your legs crossed for a long periods of time can help.
