What Could This Be? Something Serious?


Q: Doctor, I have been experiencing itching in the urethra and vaginal area. I can't seem to do anything to make it go away. I've tried lots of creams but they aren't working. I have a yellow discharge (when dried) though I can't really tell if it's yellow when it's wet. I am not sexually active though I did masturbate once. Could this be a bacterial or yeast infection or something more serious resulting from me masturbating? Please help me! I am too worried to tell my parents because I don't want them to think I'm sexually active. It's been like this for a while now and I keep putting off just giving in and going to the doctor. Do you have any idea what this could be and what I can do?! thank you.
