Brief Answer:
Normal flora of vagina - Friendly Bacteria

Detailed Answer:
Hi
Thanks for the query
I can understand your concern
I had gone through the report attached.
No need to worry.Your report is absolutely normal.
In normal healthy woman vaginal secretion should have Lactobacillus.
Lactobacillus are nothing but commensal bacteria, means these are the normal flora of vagina.Its presence indicates the good healthy condition of the vagina.
that is why it is called friendly bacteria.It produces lactic acid and hydrogen peroxide and keeps the vaginal pH low that acidic.Hence it prevents many fungal and bacterial infections resulting on urinary tract infection.

If you have any doubt you are welcome.Otherwise kindly close the thread and rate it.
Thank you
Take care

Brief Answer:
could be due infections

Detailed Answer:
Hi
Thanks for writing again
Leukorrhoea basically means excessive vaginal discharge.
vaginal discharge is commonly seen in young women in the reproductive years, and it is normal during certain phases of the menstrual cycle, when it maybe thick or excessive also.
Vaginal discharge is considered abnormal, if it is yellowish, if it is foul smelling or if it associated with pain, burning during urination etc.
If none of these symptoms are present, it is normal vaginal discharge, which is physiological, and you should not worry about it.
If you have symptoms like pain, burning urination, itching or foul odour, then please consult a gynecologist to know specific infection and treatment like clotrimazole or Candid vaginal pessary are useful.
But as of now if you are not having Leukorrhoea, no need of any treatment.

Take care

I have developed mild itch all over my body, scalp and face. I noticed some small dark spots on some places which are very few. Earlier, around 2 months back I suffered from fungal infection near groin and inner thighs for which dermatologist prescribed clotrimazole, ketocanazole and fulcunazole and it was cured.Now mild itch started again this time all over body including groin and scrotum. I am 23 years old male.once in a year or two i suffers from such skin problem due to which my inner thighs and butts have become darker.plz suggest some solution

I just recently had ringworm on my thigh and I treated it with clotrimazole lotion and tea tree oil. I did that for 4 weeks, but now I am getting these light red dry patches on my legs. They don t itch, like the ringworm did, but I am wondering if it s still that, or if it may be something else.

hello I was wondering how coud I remove post hyper pigmentation on the base of my penis , I went to a clinic and was told it was a rash(equivalent to a womens yeast infection I guess) and was told to use A cream of clotrimazole cream 1% and it helped remove the rash but now I got light spots( had em for about 4 months now) and was hoping for something to reduce or remove them?

I m a 32year male, generally healthy. Literally over a night or two, I have developed a red, raised rash on the skin between my butt cheeks. I originally thought it was haemorrhoids and so tried zinc oxide and lidocaine cream, after bathing them in salt water, but felt it started to spread further onto the cheek and up towards my scrotum. I therefore thought it could be fungal nappy rash (due to sweating and hot weather) and so bought clotrimazole 2%, which I have ude for 2 days now, but to little improvement. Any thoughts please? Thank you!
