Swollen itchy clitoris with white discharge. STD or soap allergy?

Hi, I just noticed i have a white discharge on my clitoris and along the folds below my clitoris. I do not have discharge around the labia area nor do i think its a yeast infection . My clitoris is swollen and a bit itchy. I used a qtip and water to wash it off. I started using a new soap a few weeks ago and i do not know if this is the cause of it or not. Could it be and STD?

Thanks lot the query,

Your symptoms of white discharge with itching indicates infection with candida albicans. you are suffering from candidiasis.
It is less likely to be a STD.

Diagnosis of candidiasis is by swab test.

treatment is by maintain good personal hygiene, local or systemic antifungal drug.
