Brief Answer:
Yeast infection

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

I understand your concerns.

The extra skin you are describing could be just skin tag. This needs to be examined by your doctor to confirm.

Yeast infection is most likely reason for the irritation. You might need antifungal pessary for treating the same.

Let me know if you need anymore help.

Regards
