History of yeast infection. Itching and burning on outer of vagina. Affect inside of vagina? Suggest

Hello. I am 19, about 5'7, 128 pounds and I have this intense itching/burning on the outer, not internal, part of my vagina. I've only ever had a yeast infection once before in my life which was very long ago so I'm not really sure if this is one since yeast infections typically affect the inside of the vagina. Help, please?
