Detailed Answer:
But I was sure it was not herpes.
It just does not look like herpes.
You have no visible lesion there, and yet the burning.
I am pretty sure it is vulvodynia.
Did the medication for vulvodynia that you were taking help ?

That is definitely vulvodynia again.
Unless you are having a persistent vaginal infection.
Did you get swabbed for bacterial vaginosis ( BV ) ?

Detailed Answer:
So then vulvodynia it is, and you need to see probably a Nerve Specialist for it, since other Specialists are clearly not able to help you.
