I have large skin tags inside my vaginal lips! Please help!

Hi, I'm fourteen years old and I lead a decently active lifestyle. About a year ago, I developed a strange sort of 'skin tag' (or what I think to be a skin tag) right inside my vagina lips. After about a month, a second one appeared. This time on the other lip. They are both very large now, are stretchy and are quickly spreading to my anus. It makes my 'down there' get very sweaty and itchy and I have very heavy discharge because of it. It also smells very bad. I've tried wearing odor-eliminating pantiIiners, but with no luck. I am not sexually active therefore do not take a contraceptive (which could be the cause), but I have been very stressed out lately and these things stress me out a lot more. I feel too embarrassed to talk to my mom about it, and I don't think I could go to the doctor's without her... If you have any knowledge whatsoever of that this is, please help me! I am very worried and very self-conscious about this problem!

Hi there!

Well, without a detailed clinical evaluation it would be difficult to determine the cause of your symptoms. Possibilities that may need to be considered include genital hypertrophy under hormonal effect, warts, cysts, growths from the skin/ underlying connective tissue etc. I would suggest getting this evaluated by a primary care physician initially and depending on the cause identified, it can be managed accordingly or specialist care may be sought.
Hope this is helpful.

Take care!
