In brief: Could potentially be

herpes, though I am not sure you are at risk for this.
You can see your doctor to have the test performed since you are having symptoms (often itching/burning can occur). Other causes could include allergic irritation from any products you use around your vagina (maxi-pad, detergent from panties, etc). Hope this helps.

I agree with Dr. Colgrove. Another possibility, as I was reminded By Dr. A. Rogers on a similar post, is pediculosis pubis (crabs!). Also avoid scented soaps, creams. Avoid fabric softeners altogether. If you are not wearing cotton lined underwear, & wear spandex or other fibers, could be due to that as well. I am seeing that generic panty-liners, pads, are causing much much more of this.
