I was wearing th ongs at the time, so ichanged to more comfortable underwear, and a day went buy and it started getting really red, and hurt.. But no matter what underwear i wore, it was doing the same thing. I started getting reallly "hot" down there, and then i got really itchy, i also noticed that the back of my legs were itchy too, then etoday when i wa sabout the hop in the shower, i notice, a rash down there, a little bit of white crust on the sides of my vagina, also between my thighs, is red bumps (with black dot on them) (kinda look like zits), most of them are along the line, where it sstarted getting sore .,and some of them a little aways on my buttox, and back of leg. they hurt now, and whenver iwalk my leg, betweehn my thigh (bikini line?), hurts alot , feels like a pulled muscle type feeling. PLEASE HELP, im reeally scared and panicky

Hi curious,

I recommend that you head straight to your GP or gnyecologist to have your rash, discharge and "pimples" checked out.
Your symptoms might indicate that you have a yeast infection and boils - both can happen frequently to women who are menstruating. So don't panic, but do see your doc to get this checked out and treated.

Until you get to your doc, wear loose comfortable cotton underwear and use plain cotton pads, i.e. without scent or dye.

I'd wear a skirt and go without underwear when you're at home. And honestly, there's nothin to be afraid of. Mississauga has walk-in clinics and hospitals with emergency rooms, choose one from your phone book (I'd suggest the latter), and just get it taken care of, so you can put your mind at ease.

With "that" you mean your genitals?
Docs look at all kinds of body parts, including genitals, all the time, and to your doc, your genitals or your bum are the same as your elbow or ear.
While it can be uncomfortable if you've never had a doc examine your genitals or lower body, just like any new examination that you're not sure about can be uncomfortable, there is nothing to be ashamed or embarrassed about. - If you tell your doc that you're insecure about the examination, and that it's a first time examination for you, I am pretty sure (s)he will be extra diligent in making you as comfortable as possible.

I have to disagree with your mom here: if you are as uncomfortable and in pain as you write here, you need to see a doc, and do so soon. No debate. Some Infections don't go away by themselves, and need to be looked at. - If it turns out to be minor in the end, fine. I'd rather have something checked and be told it was harmless, then missing something more serious.

You don't have any fever, do you?

Milke gave you some sound advice here. It might also be worth to invest in some plain old cotton undies in the future. While thongs are quite practical, they have the big disadvantage that they can aggrevate infections, because they can make it easier for bacteria from your anus to move to your vagina and cause infection. For now, don't wear them.

Please see your doc or if you don't have one by all means follow Milke's advice on Walk-In clinics. Tell the person who treats you that you are menstruating and show the rash and the pimples and describe the discharge. And please do that tomorrow morning.

You're going to need to start getting annual GYN exams at your life soon anyway, honey. So it sounds to me like now'd be a perfectly fine time to start.

Might want to have a look at this for some comfort and info: Your First Gynecologist Visit
