There are a lot of over the counter remedies for yeast infections. Go to walgreens, rite aid, walmart -- wherever you shop -- in the feminine hygiene department.

Yeast infections are common. All it means is that your natural "good" bacteria levels which keep you clean are off balance.

Talk to your mom

Did you have sex? Then yes

It does sound like a yeast infection based on your symptoms.

It's nothing to be too worried about, many people experience yeast infections - your vagina has a very delicate balance of flora, it can easily be thrown off by things such as soaps getting into your genitals or sweating too much if you wear tight clothing, sometimes yeast just overgrow to cause a yeast infection without any clear explanation as to why. It doesn't mean you're dirty or have done anything wrong, yeast infections are common but also really easy to treat.

Let your mom or guardian know, they may take you to the doctor (FYI: many doctors will diagnose based on symptoms rather than giving you an examination this young, but even if they wanted to examine you it's 100% okay for you to refuse) but chances are they will just get over-the-counter treatment for you such as tablets or a cream. There are home methods like using garlic (kills yeast) or plain pro-bio yogurt (contains good bacteria that help kill yeast) but they can be messy or cause problems, really it's best to use medication over home methods...better than searching random DIY treatments on the internet!

More information on yeast infections (also a good sex ed resource to check out):
FBI Files: Candidiasis, AKA, Yeast Infections - http://www.scarleteen.com/article/sexual...

google, "yogurt and yeast infection" and 'garlic and yeast infection"

Definitely sounds like a yeast infection! Your best bet is to go to the doctor's to get a confirmation as well as any medication if need be. It may be tempting to just get over-the-counter stuff to avoid going to the doctor, but please don't do that; mainly if this is your first yeast infection and therefore don't know the signs. If it's something else (not a yeast infection), taking yeast infection medication could cause medicinal resistance, and the next time you actually have a yeast infection, it will be more difficult to treat. So get confirmation from the doctor before anything else! Good luck!
