    I can't believe I'm about to type this, but I think I have a rash or something on my vag. You know...and since I'm only 17 and she would have to take me to a doctor to get it looked at, I'm thinking I should tell her about it. But I am afraid that she'll think I have an STI...maybe it is possible. I do have a boyfriend and we do everything but actual sex to be honest, but I'm afraid she'll get all suspicious if I tell her. What should I do?

    As above, you dont need her to go with you or to tell her at all.

    What kind of rash are we talking about anyway?

    hmm...well it's itchy but it wasn't always itchy...not until a couple weeks ago (and i'm not even anywhere near my boyfriend. i'm in a totally different country) but for a while now i've had bumps...like pimples kind of.

    err from the spelling of mom instead of mum i am guessing this person is american or canandian..and i dont think it is possible to do that as all medical care is paid for by the parents.

    All I can suggest is that you look on the internet and look for a young persons or free sexual health clinic to get checked without your parents knowing

    You don't have to tell her. Even if you do, you can just tell her you're not having sex, the rash could be any number of things.
    If you shave the area, that could have caused it.

    Take pictures of the rash and leave them lying around the house for her to find.

    Could it be due to shaving/waxing or hair removal from that area recently at all?

    If not, it could be a heat rash.

    If you havent had it for that long, or its come up since hair removal, it could be worth waiting it out a little.

    Some people in the Midlands spell mom with an 'o.' I don't do it because I'm trying to be American, I must have been taught that way since I have always spelled it with an 'o' and I doubt I got through my whole schooling without once writing the word mom. Also I know others who are local who spell it the same way.

    (A little aside there).

    Like standing on one leg?

    "Mum, I have a rash on my vagina, I need to get it checked out, will you come with me"

    *stands on one leg* "OH NO! IS IT HERPES?!"
