what could be the reason for petechiae and vulva itching ?

What could cause petechiae only around the anal area (no pain or itching around anus) and extremely itchy vulva with a hard pea size lump in the inner area of the labia majora (itching worse at night)? I have a history of AML, 36 months remission, Age 41, 5 6, married 11 years, not currently sexually active with spouse.
