Painful urination and burning sensation inside vagina after intercourse. What's wrong?

2 days ago after having sex with my partner I experienced a burning sensation inside and outside my vagina immediately afterwards. The burning sensation subsided after half a day and was replaced with a sharp pain each time I went to the toilet. I inspected myself and nothing but overall redness was there but the symptoms of pain and itching persisted. Today I looked again and I have what appears like a distinct difference in colour (whitish) in three different areas of my vulva , there is no swelling , no discharge , only what appears to look like burn marks. This is the third time this has happened over a period of 6 months. I am 50 years old and have been using Oestriol since the second incidence. My partner has no physical symptoms of any kind, and I have a feeling that this is a mixture of sperm and my bodily juices causing a caustic reaction but who am I to know. I have viewed photos of sexual diseases online but nothing seems to present the same way as this does, Help please?

Hi thanks for your question.
You have two issues.Painful urination called as dysurea and burning in vagina.The painful urination is most probably due to urinary tract infection( UTI) and is common after sexual intercourse.Get urine examination done to rule out or confirm UTI.The vaginal itching and redness most probably could be eigther due latex allegy if your partener used condom or because of yeast infection.It is not necessary to have dicharge and swelling at intial stage of infection.I would suggest you consult a physician who may be able to treat both conditions.You may need a course of antibiotics.
Hope this answers your question.
