thrush? wot to do.....
well i posted before but still need help!
about a month or 2 ago, i was itchy and had a burny sensation, discharge(foul smells) by my vagina. i told my mom and she bought me canesten applicators. i used it and the discharge and the smell went away. the itchy and burning went a bit too. but now its back! it itches, burns, smells and i have a bit of discharge.
do u think it is thrush again? or wot else. i am 15 yrs old and never had sex. it was soo hard to tell my mom the first time so i dont know how i can tell her again! i cant go to the doctor. i am way too nervous andd embarrassed cos i dont know what they will do. could this be an STD or an STI even though i have never had sex. i have been really stressed and i dont eat yoghurt. wot is it!!!

Thrush is a likely possibility and a STD is not likely as you are not sexually active. Do tell your mother and have her take you to a doctor to see exactly what the problem is.
