Why around my period does my outer labia itch, get red and afterwards start to peel like sunburn? No abnormal discharge. Use always brand pads. Help!

In brief: Many possibilities

This could be many things, includin normal increase in blood flow around menses.
However, if your doctor could examine you when this is flared-up it would help. Allergic reactions to pads is still a possibility, as is something like a yeast infection on the skin.
