Have you changed laundry powder recently ?, sometimes they are very highly perfumed and can cause irritation in that delicate area.
Aloe vera gel is excelllent , cooling and soothing for many skin conditions and is plant based so no nasty chemicals, I used it on a very bad burn on my arm and it healed without any scar.  Good luck.

Best wishes
