Brief Answer:
Probably Candidiasis, follow the advice below.

Detailed Answer:
Hello and Welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service. I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

Your symptoms seem to be related to Candidiasis or a yeast infection.

I would like to know more details about your medical condition.

Do you have any other medical condition such as diabetes?

Are you taking any medications?

Are you sexually active?

Meanwhile, I recommend using topical medications such as Mycostatine for local application.

I would also suggest to use antifungal medication such as Flucobazole 150 mg daily for three days.

Combiflam is a combination of paracetamol and ibuprofen.

It is not used to treat candidiasis so it can not be effective.

I suggest you to keep a good hygiene and wear cotton underwear.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further
