Hello doctor,

Yesterday, I had some really bad itching in my clitoris. Today I woke up with inflamed lips on labia and more discharge than usual. Please help me my vagina is sore and I am only 18 years old. I do not want to tell my parents that I have been sexually active. I do not know if it is a STD or not.

Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

It could be sexually transmitted disease. Have one vaginal swab to check in the laboratory to exactly know the organism of infection. Have a strict hygiene. Wear soft comfortable undergarments. Use condoms to prevent transmission of infection. After collection of vaginal swab start tablet Doxycycline 100 mg 12 hourly and table Metronidazole 400 mg eight hourly for seven days. Follow result of swab and discuss here or with a local gynecologist. Sit in warm water to reduce irritation. You can have tablet Postan (Mefenamic acid) for pain eight hourly.
