Hi. I'm 16 and through my life, at occasional times, after urinating I'd get this really uncomfortable feeling near/around my clitoris. Its almost like a burning sensation, tingly, but doesnt actually burn. Lately it's been happening almost everytime I pee. Im still a virgin, incase thats a question. Help please?

Hi,
Welcome to ehealthforum,
The symptoms that you describe could suggest infective cause. Visit your doctor/gynecologist at the earliest for thorough evaluation and urine analysis, vaginal/vulval swab/smear test (from the affected area) to look for causative agent. Get started on treatment as appropriate (based on examination and investigations results) to help you control the symptoms. Be in regular monitoring and follow-up with your treating doctor/gynecologist and report any new/abnormal symptoms immediately. Drink plenty of water. Take adequate rest. Maintain healthy diet and lifestyle. Avoid vaginal douching, use of harsh soap or perfumes in the area. Use loose cotton undergarments and avoid use of tight fitting clothes. Avoid sweat accumulation in the area. Keep area clean and dry.
Take care.
