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. I'm freaking out right now, and I really don't know how to tell anyone.

Help would be GREATLY APPRECIATED! Thank you so much for taking your time to read this.

Just go "Mom, this is slightly embarassing for me, butmy genitals are very itchy and it will not stop. I would like to see a doctor. I am not sexually active so you do not have to worry about an STD". Write it on a note or email her if you do not want to talk directly to her.

It can be a yeast, bacterial or fungal infection, or some hormonal imbalance or some allergy. So please see a doctor.
