Hi there,
I am an experienced Medical Specialist.
I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.
Please post a pic of the concerned area to provide your with precise diagnosis and treatment plan.

Most likely you have autoimmune disorder called Behcet's.

Lichen sclerosis is another possibility.

Eczema and contact dermatitis are next.

You need to see a gynecologist for confirmation.

You need to use topical steroid ointment --prescription Clobetasol propionate ointment 0.05% twice daily for 3-4 weeks will be better.

But needs prescription from your doctor.

Over the counter Hydrocortisone 1% ointment can be tried meanwhile 3 times daily for 10 days.

Please use Petrolatum jelly twice daily to prevent dryness.
