Thanks for all these additional information.
I understand your concern.

Well as you describe,possible cause may include vaginitis.

And it can be caused due to fungal infection,irritant/contact induced,atrophic vaginitis caused by the decreased estrogen.

So you shouldn't ignore them and see your gynecologist for a pelvic exam and get proper treatment.

In the meantime you can try OTC 0.5 % hydrocortisone cream and Lotrimin.

Also take RepHresh Pro-B probiotic- supplement that balances yeast and bacteria to maintain feminine health with just one capsule per day.

You should take OTC Motrin and Claritin.

Wear loose fitted cotton clothes to prevent friction.

Also do cool water sitz bath with betadine solution.

You should hydrate yourself with plenty of fluids.

And make an appointment with your doctor in next few days.
