Hello and welcome to HCM,
The symptoms of soreness and itchiness in the vaginal canal can be due to infection.
This infection can be due to trichomonas, fungus, etc.
The vaginal discharge
needs to be examined microscopically for any evidence of infectious agent.
The further treatment will be instituted on the basis of examination of the vaginal discharge.
Along with vaginal discharge examination, urine routine examination and culture can also be done.Urinary tract
infections (UTI) can co-exist with the genital tract infections.
Avoid having intercourse till the infection clears away.
Your partner also needs to be treated concurrently.
Thanks and take care
Dr Shailja P Wahal
