Why does wiping hurt?

I recently began wiping front-to-back after urination after being told by my doctor that is the correct method. My skin is now sore and irritated in a way it never was when I wiped middle-to-front. (I never started in the back/near the perineum.) I dread having to urinate now because it is so uncomfortable. The soreness and irritation lasts for hours after I wipe. Am I doing this incorrectly? Is this normal for females?
