For some reason, out of nowhere my whole vulva, my labia and all, are all red, and itchy, and kind of burny... that's pretty much it, theres no abnormal discharge and the like... so whats up? it feels kind of like a rash, and I've been putting on vaseline to kind of relieve the pain, which helps pretty well, but I don't think that will make it go away? what should i do?

Celery, you have been here long enough to know that we can't diagnose you over the internet. We are not doctors, nor can we examine you to make a guess at what it could be.
There are a plethora of possible answers here, it could be an STD, it could be an infection, or you may have come into contact with something which didn't mix with the sensitive skin around your genitals. In short, if it is burning and itching, get to a doctor and have it checked out. Only they can tell you what it is and look at prescribing you something the relieve the itch.
Hey, stop using that vaseline, it's not really the best thing for your girl parts. Some aloe gel should be quite safe (choose the kind without alcohol), but puttign a grease on might lead to an (additional?) infection, which is the last thing you need now.
