long term vaginal itching/burning
Ever since about mid-August, my vulva has been itchy and burning, sometimes red. It sometimes itches in my vagina and the inside of my vagina is sometimes very sore. Some days it even seems that the itch has spread to my anal area. It really varies day to day, even hour to hour, but it gets worst around my period. I noticed that my sebaceous glands inside my labia are also swollen. I have some discharge, but I always have had some discharge. It varies from clear and watery but is usuually white and a little thick, I wouldn't describe it as cottage cheese though. I've also had some mid-cycle bleeding twice, both were while I was ovulating.....I've had protected sex once in early july. All my vaginal problems are becoming annoying and worrisome, I know I should see a doctor but I don't know how to talk to my parents about this. What could this be?
