The split in the skin on the top of the vagina could be due to various reasons, but one of the most common ones is rough or aggressive sexual intercourse.

This could easily have resulted in an infection which is causing your presentation.

The other option could be the exact opposite turn of events. As you have not mentioned your sexually status, I am assuming that the cause for your presentation could also be a sexually transmitted infection that has resulted in a presentation similar to yours.

Unfortunately many such infections (all of which have different treatment regimens) can present in a similar manner. So a physical examination would be necessary and there is nothing embarrassing about it. But if you would really not be comfortable visiting a doctor then you could go about a urine culture and sensitivity examination along with a vaginal swab culture test which would provide valuable information on your diagnosis and treatment.

I hope this helps. Of course it goes without saying, kindly abstain from sexual intercourse in the meantime.

Best wishes.
