You are suffering from Fungal infection,excessive scratching will increase your swelling and spread of is easly cureble by certain medicines and local cream.For that you have to consult gynecologist.
Extra care of hygiene is required to prevent this.

welcome to health care magic
do no scratch the area, it will only worsen . you can apply some lacto calamine lotion to get some relief. the infection is internal for which you need to start keeping vaginal pessaries, keep candid v6 pessaries for 7 nights continously. keep the pessary into your vagina after washing your hands. lie down and insert it before going to bed. also take one dose of tab flucon tz (150mg). you can repeat this tablet after 3 days. locally apply lactocalamine lotion once a day and clotrimazole or candid cream two times a day.also if this infection re occurs get your blood sugar checked.
