teen problems
hi im a 17 year old non sexually active girl and my problem is that my vagina is burning and itching. It doesnt burn when i urinate but when it is rubbed (with toilet paper or something) it does. i am on a course of anti biotics this is a short course but i have been on and off with taking anti biotics for different things for quite a while could this be thrush? what can i do this is becoming irratating and its been consistent for a week and a half? i dont want to ask my mother to take me to the gynae as i fear this might be misunderstood. is ther anything i can do?

It could well be thrush. You could try Canesten cream.
