Question Is it thrush? What now?

Okay, well straight away - it's itchy, very itchy and I think i have thrush...

I don't know whether to ask my mum about it, since my friend said that it was something to do with sex acts and stuff like that - but I have done nothing at all and don't want her to get the wrong idea. Is it possible that it was caused by new underwear, toilet paper, bathwater or something? Does it mean I don't have thrush if I haven't had sex? I don't know what to do now, except refrain from itching, and talking to my mum seems the most terrifying option, expecially if she makes me go to the doctors to talk about it. It is not a good time to be shy... but I can't help it...
If I don't do anything - will it just go away? It's not so bad - just very itchy and I'm just kind of scared.

Re: Is it thrush? What now?

you could have a yeast infection sometimes caused by wearing a wet bathing suit too long (has happened to me). They sell a test kit at the drug store for it I believe. Cathy
