Hi ,
Welcome to HCM.
Thanks for writing in.

the condition you are suffering can be candidiasis,vaginal lichen planus .
As it does not respond to antibiotics it is not folliculitis.
As there is itching it is least likely to be syphilis .Syphilis lesions are usually asymptomatic.
A visit to dermatologist will confirm the diagnosis and allow treatment.
A VDRL test will rule out the syphilis.
Hope this helps.
Wishing you good health.
