Itchy down there
Posted on: 10/12/2007
hey, im 17. Okay i dont know whats going on down there but ive had discharge since i was like 9. at first i thought it was normal but now im not to sure about that. In the begrinning it was thick but not smelly just thick and white. Now its become clear and not much. About 2 days ago i started feeling itchy down there and i thought it was just because i didnt clean well. But after i cleaned down there i still itched. And now whenever i clean with soap it burns. I know i should be going to see a doctor about this. but im afraid of what ill find out. Im a virgin so i dont know what could have caused this. please help! what should i do?
You might have a yeast infection - which is easy to treat, and if not sexually active, there can be no major surprises! Make an appointment and talk to your doctor - it is good practice.
