Dear friend with the symptoms you have i suggest it to be Carunculitis.It is an inflammation of the uterine caruncle.
I would suggest for cold compressions( for 5 -10 mins several times a day) will comfort you rather than hot fomentations.

Along with an oral anti allergic pills, a topical anti allergic eye drops with a good lubricant drops (6-8 times a day)will give a quicker relief.

Avoid rubbing as it causes more mediators(Histamines) release,which are responsible for your itching:).

Hope this helps for your recovery. Take care :-).
