Could this have caused dry flaky skin on my labia?

So I noticed today dry flaky patches (similar to psoriasis, except I don't have psoriasis) on my labia, both sides. A couple days ago I was on my period and wearing a pad while doing some running around/errands in Atlanta, we were using the trains a lot and I couldn't change my pad for quite a while and it was a heavier flow than usual, so it caused some noticable irritation at the time but nothing past that. And today I noticed the dry flaky skin, and I was thinking that could just be the skin healing perhaps??

    That's a sign of a bacterial infection. Time to see a gynecologist for evaluation and treatment.
