Brief Answer:
Skin diseases should be ruled out

Detailed Answer:
Hi dear,
I have gone through your question and understand the concerns.
Irritation and itching in the lower abdomen can be due to conditions such as gastrointestinal problems or skin thinness and dryness in the lower abdomen.
Uterine wall thinning, pap smear showing positive HPV are totally unrelated to the symptoms.
Urinary tract infection can also lead to such symptoms.
I will suggest you to consult a dermatologist to rule out any skin disease and urine examination done to confirm the diagnosis and get further treatment accordingly.
Hope you found the answer helpful.
