Not sure: May be due to some skin irritation (like a moisture rash) from the moisture of the blood on the skin, or from use of pads. Try soaking in an oatmeal powder bath for a couple of times (aveeno makes an oatmeal powder that is great for soothing rashes). If not improved see your gynecologist for exam and other treatment options.
