Hi there,
This is Dr Basu, experienced Internal Medicine Specialist.
I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.

Sorry to hear about that.
Burning causes inflammation of the labia tissue.
And this likely led to the bacterial infection as the skin barrier is damaged from outside environment.
You should apply ice pack liberally to reduce inflammation.
And you should see your doctor for antibiotic prescription.
Topical metronidazole gel can be used for example daily for a week.
You should not neglect the problem as the infection can spread without proper treatment.
Best wishes,
It was my pleasure to help you today.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
