Hi,

This is usually seen in bacterial vaginitis. Usually ciprofloxacin and metronidazole is given for treatment. Clean the area properly.

Brief Answer:
Yes

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

Thanks for the follow up.

Beside Ciprofloxacin and metronidazole orally, vaginal Suppository can be purchased over the counter.
Clingen Suppository is used for a week for good results. I advise you to use Vwash also for cleaning of vulva and local area.

All these are available over the counter without prescription.

Hope I have answered your query. If you have any further questions I will be happy to help.
regards

I am a 19 year-old female. I started having sex with my boyfriend in February. He is the only sex partner I have ever had. Recently, I experienced an orange-colored vaginal discharge and was present for 2 days and in a light quantity. Then the discharged changed to a yellow color and there was a slight odor, but not very fishy. It itches and I've been using anti-itch creme which helps a little. Last night, I had sex with my boyfriend and it hurt a little. I feel like I have an infection but not sure what kind or if I should see a doctor. Or do I have an STD?
