Hi am XXXXXX, I'm having some problems with my vagina. Its swollen, burning and irritated, with a white discharge with no smell. So I thought yeast infection nd took a pill to clear u in 24 hours. Then the swalling went down a little but its still red, burning, and swollen with no discharge. When I go to the bathroom it burns na when I'm not using yhe bathroom it still burns. What is this?

Thanks for posting your query.
The kind of vaginal appearance and the symptoms are strongly suggestive of serious local infection in the vagina, it might be having associated sexually transmitted diseases also.
I would like you to get examined by a gynecologist after you get a Gram stain and culture of the vaginal secretions and a Urine routine examination and culture.
You may need broad spectrum antibiotics you clinician would know to treat the problem.
I hope this answers your query.
In case you have any follow up queries or doubts, you can forward them for me, and I shall be glad to help you.
Please accept my answer in case you do not have further queries.
Wishing you good health.
