Welcome to Healthcare Magic
You need to get examined to rule out vaginal or pelvic inflammatory disease first. If it's bacterial, fungal, the correct organism causing the disease must be known by taking a smear as well. Kindly visit the Gynaecologist for best help. For you you may keep the area clean and dry. Drink plenty of water to avoid urinary tract infection.

hello,
welcome to HCM
thanks for the query
your case seems to be any vaginal infection or pelvic inflammatory disease
you need thorough evaluation by the gynecologist
some investigations like routine blood test and smear of the discharge needed
local clinical examination is needed
dont take any medications without prescription of doctor
there may be bacterial or fungal infection which may need antibiotics or antifungal agents
wish you good day
take care

Dear
Though getting examined to rule out different possibilities is better but in majority of cases as per your explanation i believe it is nothing more than leucorrhoea. Amongst herbal medicines you can safely use Tab. Lumital
