Hii im 16, only had sex 4 times ALL PROTECTED.
i recently noticed that the inner part of my clit has white bumps ( i have always had these)
so i scratched this one because it looked larger in size.. then it bled. i looked today and it has white little pieces of skin hanging off....like i scratched really hard or something.
then i checked again and there is like dry raw looking skin at the top of my hood (inner part of lips)...i Then looked around my clit and there was another white spot, not its red and swollen..it just seems to be a buildup of white discharge or something...someone please help!!!

monofobicgirl, you need to wash around your clitoris and under the hood. The white discharge is most likely smegma, a mixture of dead skin cells and skin oil. Use clean water to wash your clitoris and vulva. Pull your lips open and wash between the folds and creases. (Do not use anything scented or strong soap on your genitals, just clean water)

Yes, it is natural and normal. You have to wash your vulva and clitoris (including under the hood) regularly. Unfortunately most mothers does not teach their daughters to do that. Not pulling the hood back and washing can even cause adhesions which are pretty nasty.

Some other pointers, change your pads regularly, dab your vulva dry with a towel after shower/bath/swim, wipe from the front to the back on the toilet to prevent bacteria from your anus from getting into your vulva, wear panties with cotton crotches and sleep without panties some nights.

Since you are now sexually active, you are supposed to have your first ObGyn visit.

If it does not get better, speak to your doctor.

Are you sure you do not have a yeast infection as well? Yeast is a chunky white cottage cheese like discharge from your vagina - with lots of itching.

It is time for the Monistat treatment (or whatever they have in your part of the world). Stay away from the 1 day treatments as they are less effective by all reports.

Yeast normally comes from some scented or sweetened products around your vagina. So stay away from douches, scented pads and tampons, scented soaps, fruit or candy down there, sprays, wash your hands when you masturbate. Remember that clean water is your vagina and vulva's friend. Cut sugars from your diet when possible and eat natural yogurt with live cultures.

If you have any chance that you can have diabetes, speak to your doctor about controlling yeast infections that might occur regularly.

So my advice will be to stop touching and irritating it for a week. If it is not better, see your doctor.

Your clitoris does not secrete anything. Smegma is the only issue. You may however have an UTI, bacterial infection (BV) or yeast infection that will irritate your clitoris. Your doctor can diagnose this and treat it
