See doctor. STD?: Any new or unexplained vaginal discharge needs medical evaluation. At your age (19) and assuming you are sexually active, for this kind of discharge I would be most concerned about an STD, especially chlamydia, gonorrhea, or maybe trichomonas. Itching/burning could be herpes. See your GP or gynecologist, or for guaranteed expert care, perhaps your local NHS GUM clinic. Good luck!
