Hello, I am 13-years-old, and extremely worried about my physical health. During the past few months, the area around my vagina has been very itchy (only at nights). Lately, the itch has become much worse, and whenever I scratch the area around my vagina, it usually leads to tearing of skin and slight bleeding.

I became stressed out and worried, so I decided to inspect my vagina. I pulled my "outer lips" back, and I found very small, white bumps around my clitoris and vagina.They are not on my clitoris or vagina though, The bumps are no larger than a needle head.They sort of look like eggs, but whenever I scratch them it hurts (they feel like they are "apart" of my skin...). The bumps are in clusters, and do not itch or feel painful when not touched.

I'm really worried that this could be crabs or an STD. I'm not sure how STDs are possible, because I'm not sexually active in the slightest bit. My mom has Hepatitis B, but I'm not sure if that helps.

Thank you for reading this.

Hi,
Welcome to ehealthforum,
It is difficult to comment on your symptoms without examining you. The symptoms that you describe could be suggestive of possible Pinworm infection, vaginal infection, folliculitis, allergic reaction or chemical reaction, etc. Do not ignore your symptoms. You should consider visiting your doctor/gynecologist at the earliest for examination and tests to identify the causative agent. Get started on appropriate treatment as indicated. Drink plenty of water. Avoid vaginal douching, use of harsh soap, perfumes or deodorants in the area. Use loose cotton undergarments. Avoid tight fitting clothes. Keep the area dry and clean.
Take care.
