Brief Answer:
No worries for now, see your primary care doctor

Detailed Answer:
Hi and thanks for the query,

I understand it really could be disturbing. I am afraid it might be a bit difficult to make conclusive statements, whether she contaminated you or not. If it is the very first time you are experiencing this, it is very possible.

Some parasites and fungal infections could spread through contact with infected people. I would suggest you shave completely around your private areas, get a good and dry bathe. Then book an appointment with your primary care physician.

Your primary care doctor shall examine and make an appropriate diagnosis if it is fungal, parasitic, bacterial or at times, an allergy to something, a dress that you might not be attentive of. In case the condition requires maybe a sample to be scrapped and sent to the laboratory that shall be done.

I am convinced from your description it should not be very serious as yet. I do not think you need to worry much as of now, as I suggest you book an appointment with your primary care physician.

feel free asking follow up questions in case you have specific concerns. Thanks and kind regards as I wish you the best of health.
