Hi XXXXXXX
Welcome back to healthcare Magic!
The symptoms are suggestive of a local infection or an allergic reaction.
If you have any discharge then send it for Gram stain and culture and also get urine exam and culture of your boyfriend and yourself.
Keep the area dry by frequent change of pads and use cotton undergarments.
If you have started using something new suspect it to be the cause of allergy then stop it.
I think you will need broad spectrum antibiotics, please get examined by a local gynecologist for this purpose.
I hope the advise would be informative and useful for you.
Take Care!

Hi XXXXXXX
Welcome back.
Try to find out the causative article and exclude from use.
The problem should resolve in coming two three days if it is allergic.
If infection it will not resolve and in that case you will need antibiotics.
I hope it will help.
