    You may have vulvodynia or a yeast infection. You need to go to your gynecologist. I dont know how old you are but you may be going thru menopause. Hope you feel better soon.

    You need to see a doctor who can do a swab to find out exactly what is wrong,so that you can be given the correct treatment. Are you in UK?  As Stacy has said it could be something to do with menopause if you are in the 50s age group or older.

    Are you sexually active? Could it be a STD?  Dont put up with this any longer.

     I've been reading a lot of ladies on this site having problems so I decided to give my experience in the hopes it will be of some help.   I had a similar problem to you (I'm 55) and I had all sorts of diagnoses from various doctors and nothing they prescribed helped.  Then I came down with gastro-enteritis and couldn't eat for around 5 days: and the horrible painful itching downstairs cleared right up!  That was my first clue that I was probably sensitive to some food or other.  I did an exclusion diet, slowly re-introducing different foods, and I found that one of the main triggers to the itch was whenever I ate potato!  I'd never even had a problem with it before, but it seems that as I've gotten older, I can no longer tolerate it.  I cut it out of my diet entirely, along with it's plant "cousins" - I found I get a painful itch if I eat any of the Solonacea family, including: potato, chilli, tomato, eggplant, capsicum (I believe they're also called bell peppers?) and tobacco. If I occassionally accidentally eat one of this diverse family, I find that an anthistamine can relieve the symptoms now I'm not overwhelmed by eating them every day.  I hope this helps you - best of luck!

      What a great suggestion from Minamii.  I know chillies and red peppers can give some people painful reactions,and I have recently found that i am allergic to Dairy produce after suffering weird outbreaks all my life. As you progress through the menopause and the oestrogen declines, your body has to adjust to a different chemical balance.   Food for thought for all us menopausal ladies.
