Detailed Answer:
Hello dear, I understand your health issue.
It is most probably due to yeast infection as evident in the attached picture, take a note of the following -
- wear a cotton based underwear and change it daily
- put tablet clotrimazole 200 mg inside your vagina daily at night for 3 nights
- wash perineal region with commercially available perineal wash liquids after bath
- use condom while having sex
- apply clotrimazole and beclomethasone combination ointment twice a day for 7 days or till itching persists.
- get your blood sugar levels checked
In case itching and swelling persists or worsens then visit your gynecologist for examination.
All the best.
