Do you have urinary incontinence at all? Diuretics like HCTZ can make incontinence worse because it increases your urinary output. If you are not drinking enough water, (and women who are incontinent are wont to do so because they dont want to pee more) you can have very strong acidic urine which can irritate the peri area (the area around your privates and anal area-anywhere the urine comes in contact with). If this is what is going on, talk to your Dr about treatments for incontinence and in the mean time, drink more water and change your pads more often to prevent long term exposure of the skin to the urine. After your bath, you might want to put a towel under you and let the area be exposed to air so that it dries thoroughly. It helps to use a bit of baby powder too.
