Multiple causes: Multiple possibilities can lead to vaginal burning. You could have an infection, and need to be examined and treated for this. You could also have vaginal dryness or irritation from hormonal or other causes. Sexual activity can lead to vaginal irritation in some women too -- especially if intercourse comes before sufficient vaginal lubrication does. ...Read more

Toilet paper "burn": If you are wiping from front to back as needed, is it done "roughly"? If not, make sure that the toilet paper does not contain colored dyes or "freshness" products that can irritate the vulva. Also utilize mild soaps like Dove, Caress and Ivory to minimize vulva irritation as well. By the way, there is nothing wrong with dabbing after voiding rather than wiping. ...Read more
