Brief Answer:
Refrain from using hygienic products

Detailed Answer:
First, I recommend you stop using any hygienic products on your intimate areas, soap included. Use Chamomile tea wash a few times per day and wear cotton underwear. This should bring relief and softening of the skin.

If after a few days you do not experience any relief, I recommend you see a gynaecologist.

I hope this helps.
Wishing you good health and all the best.
