In brief: Friction/allergy

This sound like a friction burn to the area from the pad or an allergic reaction to any adhesive on the pad.
Consider tampons, changing brands, explore other alternatives. See gyn or dermatologist if this continues or can be resolved.

In brief: Go organic

There are organic chemical free pads available.
Heavy bleeding can be a source of this as well.
