Question
I wanted to know, I am allergic to latex. My partner and I are both std free but yet I have yellow discharge with an odor. The doctor says that it isn't bv, which i'm prone to getting. I don't know what else it could be.

Hello,
Thanks for the query.
Even trichomonas infection can present with discharge.
It is not usually tested in regular std tests.
Make sure you get tested for trichomonas and chlamydia.
Another important thing is latex allergy.
I would like to know whether you or your partner use condoms while having sexual intercourse.
It is important as most of condoms are made of latex.
Let me know if you have any other doubts.
Thank you

Thanks for the follow up.
It may be latex allergy. This can present with yellowish discharge.
I advice you to use polyurethane condoms. There does not contain latex and may be helpful in curing your symptoms. These condoms are available in market.
Let me know if you have any other doubts.

Okay. I'll bring that up to my physician because I told her that i'm allergic to latex before she could examine me. They sent a culture to a lab because they noticed a little white and yellow so i'm nervous about what it will show.

But what will stop the itching? Right now i'm on keflex for a respiratory infection and she thinks it will cover both my lungs and my ”lower region”. He's worried about if I had a reaction. The results come in on Wednesday

Hello,
Keflex is an antibiotic.
It will take care of respiratory infection as well as if there is any vaginal infection.
For itch you can take tab levocetrizine once daily.
also apply mild steroid cream like hydrocortisone.
This will help in controlling the itch.
Thank you
