Detailed Answer:
Hello
Thanks for trusting us with your health concern.
You seem to have acquired a vaginal infection.
Infections could be bacterial, fungal or parasitic.
Treatment for each differs.
Hence instead of going for otc drugs, it's best to consult an OB GYN and get a vaginal swab taken to pinpoint the precise infection.
Also abstain from sex until this heals.
All the best.
Please feel free to discuss further.
