Hello,

With your description of white discharge and burning, I would suspect you have a yeast infection.

Other causes are possible, such as bacterial vaginosis, but I think yeast infection would be the most likely.

You can try treating it with over the counter topical clotrimazole, such as Monistat, and if that doesn't clear it, I would see a doctor to try to clearly find the cause at that point.

Hope I have answered your queries. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care

Regards,
