HELLO THERE.

THANKS FOR WRITING.

YOU SHOULD STOP SCRATCHING. THIS WONT HELP YOU IN ANYWAY AND WOULD INFACT INCREASE THE INFECTION.

YEAST INFECTION HAS TO BE TREATED WITH MEDICATION. YOU NEED TO VISIT A GYNECOLOGIST TO CONFIRM IF IT IS A YEAST INFECTION AND TO GET THE RIGHT TREATMENT.
SYMPTOMS OF CURDY DISCHARGE, ITCHING AND REDNESS WOULD RESOLVE ONLY AFTER TREATMENT.

MEANWHILE YOU CAN DO SITZ BATH (SIT IN TUB CONTAINING WARM WATER FOR 15 MINS 3 TIMES A DAY). THIS WOULD HELP RELIEVE REDNESS, SWELLING AND PAIN IN YOUR VAGINAL AREA.
AVOID USING ANY IRRITANTS LIKE SOAP OR DOUCHING.
WASH THE GENITAL AREA AFTER USING THE TOILET WITH PLAIN WATER.
BETTER TO AVOID INTERCOURSE TILL YOUR INFECTION RESOLVES.

TAKE CARE.
