Feels like inflammation under skin which later allocates in more narrow area- pain disappears and appears several small ulcers. Usually close to anus or on the skin between anus and vagina, this time close to vagina. After several days it disappears. What can it be?

This can be a manifestation of Crohn's disease as well.

ulcers painful cause it like the skin opens, looks like small red dots

However, irregular bowel habits also are part of Crohn's

If no Crohn's which is diagnosed by endoscopy, then this is just hormonal.

yes as I explained this is entirely hormone related influence.
