If your history as true, and I have no doubt that you are being honest, the most likely cause IS a yeast infection. Yeast loves warm, dark, moist places and your vagina fits the bill perfectly. Yeast is notorious for causing extreme itching, swelling, redness, and a discharge, so do not hesitate to talk to your mother. In most cases, your mother has experienced vaginal yeast infections herself, and will be able to help you. There are many effective, over-the-counter medications, and even an oral pill that your medical provider can prescribe. This problem can be easily fixed, so don't delay.
