HELLO THERE.

THANKS FOR WRITING.

YOUR HISTORY POINT TOWARDS THE POSSIBILITY OF YEAST(FUNGAL) INFECTION OF THE VAGINA.

THIS PRESENTS WITH THICK CURDY WHITE VAGINAL DISCHARGE WITH ITCHING AND FOUL SMELL.

YOU NEED TO VISIT A GYNECOLOGIST FOR A LOCAL AND INTERNAL EXAMINATION TO CONFIRM THIS POSSIBILITY.
TREATMENT INVOLVES USE OF ANTIFUNGAL MEDICATIONS WHICH CAN BE GIVEN ORALLY OR VAGINALLY.

APART FROM TREATMENT IT IS IMPORTANT TO MAINTAIN ADEQUATE PERINEAL HYGIENE. WASHING THE GENITAL AREA AFTER USING THE TOILET AND THEN KEEPING IT DRY IS NECESSARY.

TAKE CARE.

Hello,

Symptoms are suggestive of vaginitis , that is vaginal infection. It can be either bacterial or fungal infection.
You can take combination antibiotic and antifungal for this.

Seeing doctor would also prove helpful.

Regards.
