That could be a skin irritation from dye or your underwear  rubbing. It can also be the toliet tissue you use. Sometimes the perfume or dyes in it can do the same thing. If you wear thongs, that can definitely rub. When you have your period and you wear pads, you are putting something sterile between you and the underwear. It can also be that wiping with dry toilet tissue is not cleaning the crevices totally and it irritates your skin. Always wash your new underwear before using so the over dye will wash out. Get some sensitive skin, no perfume, baby wipes and use after everytime you use toliet tissue in that area. Stop wearing thongs for a while and see how that does. If you tend to sweat in that area you can get feminine deodorant for sensitive skin like Summer's Eve. The baby powder one is good. Another good thing to use is cornstarch. Don't use regular baby powder it will hold the wetness.Use it everyday if you do have a sweat problem. Another thing you may want to think about is have you changed bath soap, washing detergent or softners. Sometimes, things like that will only affect one area. Think about what you do different or use different versus the time you are having your period. If the trouble still persists, then see your doctor. It could be bacterial or something that needs a med that is for that area. Things that you could use on other parts of the body such as your arm you can't put there.

These are the only things I can think of that might help. Get Betadine ******. Mix it and then use a white cloth to sponge it on. Be very careful not to use the cloth on the front after using it on the back. Don't rub it, just soak it. They use to sell a vaginal cream which would work great, like an ointment, but they stopped selling it around here. It is great for a bacterial infection. Don't get the pre-mixed it seems weaker than mixing your own and you get more for your money. Soak it slow so you can get the full benefit. Do not wear panties at night so the air can get to it as much as possible. During the day dust the area with corn starch to help it keep dry. Sometimes bacteria or a fungus from sweat takes a while to go away so I would try it atleast a good month, even if it clears right up, keep using it for atleast 2 weeks more, so it will kill all the germs. You can still use the betadine during you period, but try to soak the skin as much as you can. Stay away from tight clothing, such as jeans and try white cotton panties. Be sure to wash them before wearing them the first time. Try a detergent that is free and clear. That is the best for sensitive skin. Take showers and use Summers Eve Feminine Wash for the whole area and rinse thoroughly. Use baby wipes (sensitive skin), not perfumes, instead of toilet tissue. No help from that, then get Oatmeal Soak, but make sure the tub is cleansed thoroughly. Oatmeal Soak is good for rashes. One of the two should help. If not you will have no choice but to go to the dr.
