You may find relief changing the medication, the dosage, or frequency. Wear cotton underwear or none when possible (to air out the vaginal area). Use good wiping technique.

Not herpes: Herpes doesn't behave at all like this. Neither does any other STD. Maybe a localized allergy or other dermatitis. See a doctor.
