Brief Answer:
May be infection.

Most likely infection is there as you have taken antibiotics so no smell is present in discharge .It will be all right in 5-7 days.

Thank you for the reply. I want to know if any other medications are necessary and if I should apply any ointment. I am using sodium fusidate and povidine iodine. And if it is a staph infection? Do I have uti? I want to know what caused the infection. I am a virgin

Brief Answer:
You can use the ointment.

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for writing again.
You can apply sodium fusidate ointment and press it to remove the discharge. It can be a bacterial infection. It is not associated with UTI. Such infections can happen due to shaving or crushing of the glands with tight undergarments or vigorous rubbing.
Hope my answer is helpful.
Do accept my answer in case there are no further queries.

I had vestibular battery test that came back abnormal. Interpretation: This is an abormal vestibular test battery dueto upbeat nystagmus throughout, reaching 7 d/s. This may suggest central localization of pathology. There is no evidence of peripheral vestibular abnormality. Clinical correlation is advised. I met with a neurologist and the Associate Diagnosis is Nystagmus. Ordering Comments: Abnormal ENG. Exam unremarkable except for mild dysdiadochokinesis bilaterally. Evaluate for brainstem/cerebellar lesion. I am having an MRI WWO contrast on Friday. She doesn t seem concerned at all, almost like I manipulated the test results. Is this possible? I used to be a heavy drinker for years but stopped about two months ago. I have been smoking pot and told her this. I know alcohol can effect the test, but what about cannibis? I didn t smoke right before either appointment. I ve been pretty sick for almost a year now and haven t been able to work. (pneumonia in October, C-Diff in the spring, continued nausea and now super constipated, loss of appetite and unintentional weight loss (dropped 4 sizes yet I look 9 months pregnant. Pelvic ultrasound and TVU was normal). I am also being treated for depression with Effexor XR, have RLS & PLMS (RLS for over 30 years), no longer have a thryoid (had the radio iodine about 13 years ago) and had a parathyroidectomy this past March. My husband thinks my physical is caused by my depression, which I know is possible. I also know it could be thryoid related (my TSH on 8.09.12 was 0.13) as well as brain lesions and even MS. My GI dr. feels it is neurological. My main question is could my two test results have in any way have been unintentionally manipulated by me to get the abnormal results? And is MS a real possibility? I can deal with anything...just not knowing and started to feel my husband is correct and that it is in my head. Thank you

I need to find the best vascular specialist in Illinois or around Illinois. My mom has had 2 blockages in her right artery in her neck twice now. The last time it was 98% blocked. Yesterday she went in for the iodine test to find out how blocked it was again. They said this time it is 99% blocked mixed with a blood clot.After the test was done she shown all signs of a stroke and they were still gonna try sending her home although her blood pressure went down she still had a severe migraine. The doctors did do a ct scan but have not even read them or gotten back to us to let us know what the results were. I m in DESPRET need of the best surgeon right now. She s only 55 yrs old.

I have a nodule on my neck for a few days now . My doctor think it could be my thyroid . She gave me a prescription for a CT scan with contrast . Wouldn't the contrast affect my thyroid even more since it has iodine ?
