Brief Answer:
Vaginal infection likely

Detailed Answer:

I understand your concerns.

Wetness you are experiencing is due to vaginal infection.

This vaginal infection needs to be checked by doing high vaginal swab culture and sensitivity to identify organism causing infection.

You can be given medicines as per report. Please get examined by your gynecologist for the test I mentioned.

This is minor infection and nothing serious.
