You probably have a yeast infection also known as candidiasis. You will need oral and topical antibiotics to treat the infection.You should see your doctor for examination and a prescription. Try to avoid intercourse until the infection is cleared.

Its a type of fungal infection.Its very common in women in seen widely all around the world. Hygiene is main causative factor.Repeated infections may be seen in diabetics.So you should get your blood sugar checked also.Apart from that,antibiotics will provide adequate infection.Typical signs are itching, curdy white discahrge, inflammation. Avoid intercourse till infection clears. Maintain good hygiene. It can be associated with vaginitis also which is caused due to an imbalance in the normal vaginal flora.Symptoms are similar.Treatment is the same.

It usually occurs due to mad hygiene or even sharing towels etc.Buts its very treatable. The vagina is a common site due to the mucous membrane being susceptible. You need to keep clean and take the medication. Im sure your job isnt the problem here.
