The most common cause of what you have is a condition called lichen sclerosis. this can usually be treated with a steroid cream. However, it is important to see your doctor for a skin exam and probably a biopsy, that is because some forms of skin cancer can also present this way. After the biopsy confirms the proper diagnosis, you should be able to get a prescription for a treatment that will provide the relief you deserve.

I wish you the best, please let me know if you need any more information.
