Okay - are they painful, or just itchy?
Are they grouped in one area or all over your vagina?
Customer: replied 6 years ago.
they are only painful when i wear jean pants or when i touch them and after i use the bathroom. they are all over the vagina area!

Hello,
Given I do not have a good physical exam on you - this could be a parasitic infection such as pubic lice or scabies, this could be a herpes infectio, this could be a yeast infection, or this could be a contact dermatitis - now you can try hydrocortisone cream for a possible contact dermatitis, if you think this is a yeast infection then you might try an over the counter product such as Monistat or Vagistat - but given the 'all over' and painful with 'jeans' you should make an appointment with your ob/gyn to get an accurate and 'eyes on' diagnosis so you can get properly treated.
