It's normal for the tissue there to be red or pinkish.

But again, as advised with your last post, since you're also possibly experincing unusual discharge and now itching, get in to see your GYN.

In the meantime, wear cotton undergarments, comfy clothing, and avoid using harsh soaps on your vulva.

Really, just warm water will suffice if you want to wash your vulva. That's much more gentle than trying to use even a very mild soap (even a mild soap, depending on your body, could cause somed irritation).
