Dry painful itchy vulva, no discharge

I've got dry, painful itchy vulva (and the very entrance of my vagina), red, but with no particular unusual smell or discharge. This has been going on for over a week, and I don't know what's going on.

I wear cotton underwear. I don't take oestrogen-containing birth control pills (I'm on a progestogen-only method, and I'm not having sex at the moment), I haven't changed my medications recently. I haven't taken any systemic antibiotics- I used a small amount of mupiprocin ointment on a mildly infected wound on my hip, but I can't imagine that would have major systemic effects. I don't have any relevant health conditions.

On my last STI screen my then-partner and I both tested negative, and I have no reason to believe he cheated on me or withheld information.

I have been really stressed about uni and work, which is the only thing I can think of that might be even remotely contributing.

Does anyone have any idea what might be going on?
