I took a closer look at the area and it now seemed that the whole area outside the vulva
was extremely dry and irritated and the outer labia looked dry and swollen (this rash
outside the vulva did not itch at this point). I thought I might have had an allergic reaction to the antifungal cream - so I stopped using it. But unfortunately, this morning the rash is still there - and now it also itches intensely (much more than the actual vulva which almost seems fine right now).
