Hi,

Thanks for the query.

A normal discharge can be yellow and brownish in color when come in contact with air.

If it is due to yeast infection then other symptoms like itching, thrush also present and discharge usually look like cottage cheese in color.

Are you having these above mentioned symptoms?

Please revert back to me with my answer.

Hope to hear from you soon.
