Hi, it can be fungal infection.

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for writing to us.
According to your symptoms, in my opinion you are suffering from fungal infection( Thrush or yeast infection).
You have to follow these instructions to treat this condition-
1) Take plenty of fluids orally ( you can drink cranberry juice also).
2) Maintain proper vaginal hygiene by washing area with water from front to back after urination, XXXXXXX area dry and clean.
3) Use cotton undergarment, avoid tight fitting undergarment and jeans, avoid perfumed soap and deodorant.
4) Eat a lot of yougart, avoid using antibiotics.
5) You can use vaginal pessaries, cream( antifungal) to avoid soreness.
6) Avoid tampoon, use pad during menstruation.
7) Always do a safe sex and avoid sex during infection.
You should follow this for few weeks. If your symptoms subsides then it's ok, otherwise you and your partner should consult a doctor to rule out STD also.
