In brief: Dermatitis

Could be hives or contact dermatitis.
I would see a dermatologist or you could try some over the counter Benadryl (diphenhydramine) pills or lotion (not in the vagina) to see if it helps. If so, you might have your answer. A dermatologist would know best.

Candida? This may represent a yeast infection and can. E treated with macron cream or oral antfingals.

In brief: See a MD

The itching that you described is between the labia and thighs(intra-crural) and could be due to a vaginal infection, contact dermatitis(such as residual soap powder in your underwear), or skin irritation from perspiration that is not absorbed by cotton undergarments and wicked away from the skin.
See your gyn to determine the cause and obtain appropriate treatment.
