Thanks for the query.

according to your symptoms the possibilities are,

-presence of vaginal infection:
different organisms can cause vaginal infection.
which can occur by sexual transmission or by skin to skin contact etc.

to diagnose this,
consult gynecologist, undergo local examination and get vaginal swab culture.
depending on the result treatment can be taken.
both husband and wife should be treated simultaneously.

-other possibility is in case of usage of barrier contraceptives like condoms, because of allergy to the material by which condom is made, the above symptoms can occur.
allergy to spermicidal jellies etc can also cause these symptoms.
in this case you have to shift to condoms made up of some other material or change the contraceptive method.

-allergy to under garments can also cause this,
better to use cotton inner wear.

consult your doctor once and undergo examination which will help in detecting the possible cause.

Hope I have answered your query. I will be available to answer your follow up queries. If you are satisfied with all my answer, please do not forget to accept it.
take care.
