Hello
Normal vaginal pH is 3.8 to 4.5, slightly acidic. The home vaginal pH test kit measures pH on a scale of 1 to 14. You should hold the pH test paper against the wall of your vagina for a few seconds and then compare the color of your pH test paper to the color chart. While the color may not be an exact match to the chart, you should choose the color your test result most closely resembles. Your symptoms remind herpes infection. Your pap smear and vaginal culture should be inspected with polymerase chain reaction to be done for herpes, chlamidia and candida.
Wish you Good Health
