Brief Answer:

Could be yeast infection, topical anti fungal & antihistaminic.

Detailed Answer:

Hi

Redness and burning on private parts could be due to yeast infection.

I would recommend you to apply topical anti fungal like Clotrimazole cream on the affected areas twice daily and take antihistaminic like tablet Cetrizine once or twice daily depending on the intensity of burning.

Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.
