Hello,

I read carefully your query and understand your concern.

The symptoms seem to be related to a vaginal infection.

Cefuroxime is a very preferred antibiotic in treating the vaginal and urinary tract infections.

So,I recommend to use it as prescribed by your doctor.

I also suggest using cotton underwear and maintaining a good hygiene.

Hope my answer was helpful.

If you have further queries feel free to contact me again.

Kind regards!
