Is there an itch?
This sounds like Vulvovaginitis (also called vaginitis or vulvitis) which is usually caused by an infection of the vagina or outside vagina. The most common symptoms are itching, burning, and erythema of the vulvovaginal area, particularly with the presence of a vaginal discharge. Sometimes there is pain with intercourse and an odor. The 3 most common causes of vulvovaginitis are:-bacterial vaginosis-vulvovaginal candidiasis-trichomoniasis
Unfortunately, you will need to see a medical provider to get a pap smear with cultures.
The treatment is antibiotics - either intravaginal or oral.
