    You need to head to a clinic. That does not sound good. I understand being really self conscious about how you look, especially about your vulva. But I can tell you, they are there to help. They have seen vulvas of all shapes and sizes. Yours is just another that they need to help. Thats how they view the people who come in for their help.

    Maybe try Vagisil creme. That cream is specifically designed to help with itching regarding your's. If that does not help go see a doctor yep.

    Im 17 and I have had a very sore , itchy vagina for the past few months on and off. When its bad its very sore and itchy on the outside of my vagina. It's there most of the time but mainly nearer the evenings. I've read up about others with similar symptoms .and for them it may be thrush. Help?

    I had the same problem, I'm 17 . I went to the doctors the other day and they said it was thrush. It hurt to use the bathroom and I was in pain will having sex. The doctors have me antibiotic and a cream to put in the vagina , and it has helped heaps. My advice is go to your doctor they don't judge , say you are itchy down below and get swollen . I know it is embarrassing but if not treated it can get worse. If you don't want to go to the doctors go to a pharmacy and ask for an over counter thrush treatment. Hope this helps

    Cystitis sashes can help from a pharmacy just ask the pharmacist and they will point them out to you I know it's embarrassing going to the doctors as I'm only 16 myself good luck

    These worms are called pinworms or threadworms and are often passed on through young children. You can inhale eggs which travel to your intesting and hatch or you can scratch yourself and carry the eggs under your nails which, if your a bit of a nail-biter could result in swallowing eggs. You can make an appointment with your GP and be prescribed two tablets. You take one the day you get them and the other one a week later. As you have these worms, your whole family should take these tablets as well. When worms spread to the vagina it causes itchiness, redness and soreness. this is called vaginitis and can be passed on by spreadation from the anus to the vagina. Your GP will prescribe you ointment or cream to cure your problem. To prevent this from reoccuring try to keep your nails short and make sure your bed linen, towels and underwear are washed regularly ( about twice a week).Hope this helps :)

    Also, I think you may have thrush at the same time if you are itchy and sore down there. Ask your doctor for some canestan cream which will sort it out. It's a good idea to speak to your mum or an older sister who will have been through these kinds of things before :-)

    Hi. I have this weird white lump right at the opening of my vagina, which I just felt last night because it suddenly became itchy. I have no problems peeing nor any burning senstation. It's just itchy, and now it's swelling a bit because of scratching. I tried to see what it was and was surprised to see a group of tiny little white bumps at the opening of my vagina, which wasn't there few days ago. I don't have multiple sex partners and always use condoms with my partner. Could anyone tell me what this is and how to get rid of it? The itch is really uncomfortable. Thank you.

    I have a few days or so every month where I am bit itchy around my vagina but do not worry about this as I am sure it is just some sort of irritation (no discharge, blood or spts). However, the past few weeks has almost been constantly itchy, even if only mildly. I noticed a small red spot near the opening to my vagina;it is not sore to touch and does not bleed. I have had the same sexual partner for at least 3 years and we do not use condoms. Any ideas what this could be and if there is need to worry? I am out of the UK at the moment and there is no access to decent medical care. Any advice my be useful.

    So I've always had some bumps in the hair follicles of my vagina, but they get even worse when I shave. I never really get any on the inside like the clitorial hood or the inner lips, recently myself and this guy have been sexually active but every time we've used protection, until the other night. The bumps are getting more itchy and irritating right at the panty line. But the bumps also get itchy right in the middle, but they are never on the inner part of my vagina, just where the hair grows, I'm wondering if it may be folliculitis or something more serious? Any answers help

    Nicola, Use monistat. It sounds like a bacterial infection. Keep hands and lady parts clean. Don't deusch. Eat yogurt and healthy foods.

    I have a very red, imflammed vagina with lots of discharge slightly white in colour! I had thrush when I was pregnant that healed in a week, then 5 months after giving birth I had a mirena coil fitted. Since then I have had this issue!! Very sory, itchy and lots of discharge! AND because I can not help but scratch to relieve it, I have now ended up with what looks like raw skin on the folds of my vagina where my groin area would be as well as the skin between my bottom and vagina opening! Incredibly sore and itchy!!! What could this be?

    I am 13 and I have scale like skin at the bottom of my vagina - near my bum hole - and I also have pimples on my vagina where my pubic hair is. I do have a soap free wash called 'fem fresh' which often helps but I still get itchy and painful vagina. Also after I shave 'down there' I get small lumps like mosquito bites and they bleed but I have to shave for swimming, an upcoming holiday and just general comfort. I have painful pimples all over my bottom too so I hate seeing myself naked and feel self conscious when I'm in a bikini, shorts or skirt. How do I get rid of all of these without seeing a clinic or parent (I won't even tell my mum 'coz it's so embarrassing!!) I DO NOT LIKE TALKING ABOUT THIS SO I WOULD LIKE TO DEAL WITH THIS IN THE COMFORT OF MY OWN HOME WITH NO-ONE ELSE KNOWING. So please help me with: Bum Spots Itchy Vagina Scaly Vagina skin Spotty Vagina Bikini Bumps I am getting really worried so advice would be really appreciated! Thankyou

    This sounds like an infection. Have you used any products on the areas specified? If so stop using them, if not i would suggest seeing a doctor. Dot worry about seeing the doctor, they have seen everything before and i can ensure you that they should do a proffesional job.

    so I have these blister like things near my vagina. It's not inside the hole. It's on the skin between my vagina hole and anus. They don't hurt but are really itchy, and will bleed if I itch it to hard. Is this herpes? it's normally always itchy and doesn't go away even though some times it itches more than others. I have tried to look at pictures but mine doesn't seem to look like any of the others. I can hardly see anything when looking but can feel the bumps. I am scared and embarrassed to go to the doctor.

    i kept getting an itchy vagina and thought it was thrush as have had it before, it wasn't very itchy but noticable. however once my period came it used to disappear then come back some weeks later. this has been going on for some time then i got a urine infection which was cured by antibiotics. not long after i finished the tablets my vagina started to really itch this time. i went to doctors and got a thrush tablet. that was 4 days ago and it seems a little better but still itches and the other day i had some white discharge inside my vagina. i do get the odd bit of discharge but its hard to tell the colour cos of different colour underwear and nothing shows up on toilet paper. could it be an sti even though i havent had sex for approx 6 months?

    my vagina has been itchy for a couple of months now and im scared to go to the doctor as i have only recently been given one and hav'nt had any meetings yet, nor do i have anyone to go with. I did the vagina check earlier and my vagina is a little red around the flaps and seems to have overall gone more brown than pink. Some days it's fine but others i get a little worried. I'm only 13.
