Brief Answer: Fungal infection Detailed Answer: Dear Arihant. Welcome to XXXXXXX I am Dr Anshul Varshney , I will try to help you. Vaginal Itching can be due to fungal infection , which may be associated with white discharge per vaginally also . It might be also possible that she developed some allergic reaction to condom in case you used. She may go to a gynaecologist for a local examination. I prefer to give a stat single dose of fluconazole 200 mg in such cases to my patients. You may discuss with you doctor about my opinion, I am sure your doctor would agree. If you have any further query , you may please ask me.

Brief Answer: Fluconazole 200 mg Detailed Answer: Dear Arihant. Stat Single dose of Fluconazole is 200 mg. It is initially taken stat and if required repeated after 15 days. This varies from clinician to clinician. However I would still recommend that if she doesn't get relief, she should see a doctor for examination. If you don't have any further query , you may please close the discussion and rate it.
