Hello,
Welcome to Healthcaremagic.
From your query i suspect that you are suffering from some sexually transmitted disease(STD).

But it can also be due to tampons, deodorant sprays, detergent soaps, condoms etc.
As you had recent history of sex with your boyfriend, most probably the cause could be STDs.

The infection could be chlaymidia, genital herpes, viginal candidiasis or gonorrhoea.

They all are treatable.
Get partner treated.

You have take swab for identification of causative agent with the help of gynaecologist.
Have safe sex with condoms during sexual intercourse to prevent sexually transmitted diseases.

Avoid sexual intercourse until get treated.
Do not use scented soaps.
Change diaper regularly.

Hope this helps
If any doubt, reply.
Take care.

Regards,
Dr.Manjeth
