Gynecology
In brief: Allergy or yeast
You could be allergic to or irritated by something coming into contact with your skin there such as soap, shampoo, laundry detergent or it could be a yeast infection.
You can try an over the counter yeast medicine internally and over the counter Hydrocortisone cream externally. Don't ever douche or use products near your genitalia that have strong perfumes.
