  • Go to see a doctor- you most likely have a yeast infection. Which you don't have to feel embarrassed, it happens to all women.Yeast lives inside of all women- but sometimes it overgrows and start getting problematic. If you took steroids, antibiotics, birth control,other prescription drugs, or if you eat too much sugar, chocolate, breads, etc- this feeds the yeast and kill the friendly bacteria that lives inside of you and control the yeast.Ask your parents or guardian to get you some probiotics ( it is not a drug) and eat lots of veggies and cranberries while you wait to see a doctor. Don't feel bad if you start getting stomach cramps, as the yeast also likes to live in your intestines.You be okay- the doctor is going to ask you to take a pill to kill fungi or a monistat type cream- but you really really have to see a doctor and get a diagnosis.If you can not afford a doctor, ask your mother to research on grapefruit seed extract, as it is a safe dietary supplement that kills fungi. Do not try this without your parents supervision.Take Care.A 29 year old woman.

  • I have the exact same thing. I went to see a doctor, and she said, "it's nothing", and just sent me away with some anti-itch cream. I've had it for more than 5 years now, but don't dare to go back to the doctor to just get a "it's nothing" verdict. I find cold showers, air-conditioning, and ice-packs stops the crazy uncontrollable desire to itch.

Take Care.
