Thanks for posting your query.

Itchy vagina with greenish foul smelling discharge from vagina suggests the possibility of trichomonas infection of vagina.

It is easily treatable infection with the help of antibiotics but if not treated properly, notorious for recurrence. Both you and your partner need to be treated simultaneously to avoid reinfection from the partner.

You can take some general measures to avoid recurrence:

1.Avoid wearing tight underwear or other tight acrylic garments everyday. Use loose fitting cotton panties. Avoid wearing jeans, legging, panty hose every day.

2.Stay away from deodorant sanitary pads and tampons.

3.Do not remain in wet clothes for a long time.

4. Keep the vaginal area clean and dry.

I would suggest you to consult your Gynecologist to confirm the same and to discuss the necessary investigations to undergo and treatment options.

A vaginal swab culture and sensitivity will confirm the diagnosis and will guide about the antibiotic best suited for the treatment.

Burning in urination might be due to an associated urinary infection. It also needs proper antibiotic treatment from your gynecologist.

I hope my answer and recommendations are adequate and helpful.

I will be available for your follow up queries if any.
