In brief: A few possibilities

If you have already tried antifungals (which is a great first try!), then i'm wondering if this may be thinning of your vulvar tissue from waning hormone levels.
The sores could be mild atrophy combined with normal sex - be sure to use a lubricant! the itching still bothers me, so that may just be the healing process. The most i would suggest would be otc Hydrocortisone cream to ease irritation.
