Thanks for the query.

You seem to have a vaginal infection. It could be either candidiasis or bacterial vaginosis. If there is curdy, white discharge the candid infection is more likely. If there is dirty white patches on the vaginal walls along with itching, then vaginosis is more likely.

You will need a physical examination by a competent gynecologist for diagnosis examined for confirmation. Antibiotic medication /creams use is entailed.

This is usually not sexually transmitted. Good hygiene is very important here.

You should see your doctor for prescription medications.

Hope this helps. I will be available for followups should you have more queries.
