Welcome to HCM.

Get clinically examined. Get blood tests ( VDRL, ELISA ) done to rule out STD. You should get vaginal swab tests done also.

Keep the genital area dry, moisture will enhance itching. Do not scratch. You can apply mild medicated lotions, neosporin or soframycin oitment for relief. Wash the area with warm water when you visit restroom.

Avoid sex till you are not fine. Your treatment will depend upon your test reports. Take care.
