Brief Answer:
Candidal infection likely.

Detailed Answer:


I have gone through your question and understand the concerns.

The symptoms you are describing are suggestive of candidal infection or bacterial infection like trichomoniasis.

I will suggest you consult an OBGYN specialist to get properly examined internally, get a vaginal swab examination and get further treatment accordingly.

Hope you found the answer helpful.
