Thank you for the query.

Such white cheesy discharges are most likely caused by fungal infection of the vagina. It can be associated with antibiotics intake, as there are natural bacteria in the vagina protecting it from fungal colonization. Antibiotics do affect this bacteria destroying them and causing such infection.

You should visit gynecologist and have vaginal suppositories should be prescribed.

Hope this will help.

General & Family Physician Dr. Pavan Kumar Gupta's  Response
Your symptoms suggest that you have developed fungal infection of vagina.also called as yeast infection.
It is normally caused by the fungus candida albicans.
In a healthy vagina,some amount of yeast cells are always present but whenever a person takes heavy dose of antibiotics,the good bacteria called as lactobacillus acidophilus gets killed and yeast grows in number resulting in itching and white discharge from vagina.
If symptoms are mild,local application of clotrimazole ointment for 3 to 7 days is enough but if the symptoms are severe or persistent ,you may need oral anti fungal medicine like FLUCANAZOLE for few weeks.It is taken as weekly dose.
Eat more of yoghurt and take lactobacillus acidophilus tablet along with the antibiotics ,you are using.
