Vaginal discharge needs to be examined

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

I understand your concerns about vaginal discharge.

Following is my reply:

1) Vaginal discharge you have described occurs typically in fungal infection of vagina.

2) You need to get examined by a doctor to check this out and also send high vaginal swab for culture and sensitivity of the organism so that you get accurate list of medicines to b started.

3) Meanwhile you can start clotrimazole vaginal pessaries for relief. I am not sure if they ar available over he counter.
