Dry skin on vagina, itching, redness, white or brown discharge, spreading to anal area. Treatment?

Hi, I m a 19 year old female and I m not sure what s going on down there but the skin down there is very ashy and dry looking. It itches sometimes and is really red and sore. Sometimes I see white stuff or brown stuff coming from my vagina and I think it s spreading to the anal area because the skin splits. Also when I use the bathroom it sometimes hurts because its so dry down there. What do you think is going on?

General & Family Physician 's  Response

The symptoms are related to vaginosis (bacterial) and fungal infection of vagina. I suggest to

- testing of vaginal swab to start antibiotic treatment
- I usually recommend taking fluconazole once a week for 4 weeks
- take OTC clotrimazole or econazole cream for local use
- take vaginal suppositories for 12 days, twice daily.
- drink more water
- avoid sex during treatment

All the best!
