Thrush like symptoms before menstruation

Patient : Around a week before menstruation the area surrounding the vaginal entrance and perineum become sore and itchy and develop a rash like appearance of raised bumps. In some areas the bumps do appear to be open and very red. This is accompanied be abnormally thick discharge, but with no odour. The skin on the inside of the outer labia and clitoris also starts to peel and can develop into a thick layer if not shed. This occurs every menstrual cycle and tends to stop as the bleeding comes to an end. I have recently been tested for STI's and have had the all clear. Is this thrush or something else?
