Itchy rash down below


Q: I've got an issue which has been troubling me for about 5 months now. I'm a 16 year old female, and a sort of rash developed to the right hand side of my vagina, but not the left. Right next to my vagina are sort of little bumps which are itchy and sore, but more towards my leg it's more like dry skin, which isn't quite as itchy. I have also suddenly got spots on the back of my legs, which are worse on the left leg. I do shave down there, and I am sexually active, but this began before I was and it's definitely not off my sexual partner. I also don't think it's anything to do with my washing powder or soaps I'm using. I'd rather not go straight to my doctor about this as it's quite embarrassing, but I was wondering if you could recommend anything? Thank you!
