Need specificmedicines /improved genital hygiene.

Detailed Answer:
Hi,xxxxxxxxxxxxxx000,

Thanks for the query. I understand your concern.

You seem to have trichomonal vulvo vaginitgtis. It's a fungal infection acquired by genital un hygiene/unprotected sex with a infected person.

All you need is antifungal medication (metranidazole/flucanozol) both orally & vaginally.
Consult a gynaecologist for proper dosage. Even you sex partners needs medication .This would cure the thing.

I think that answers your query .
Any follow up up query is welcome.
Thanks.
