Thanks for your question

i think you are suffering from fungal infection.

Take fluconazole for 3 days after meal. or take fungid kit or fas 3 kit. they are antifungal plus anti bacterial. they will decrease fungal infection

use clotrimazole powder after perspiration, bathing, and swimming

do not wash vagina to much

do not wash vagina and groin area with soap it will alter normal PH of vagina and invite becteria

use v-wash or clean and dry for washing vaginal area it will maintain normal PH

wear cotton based , fresh and clean underwear

use topical application of clotrimazole thrice a day will help you a a lot.

you need to maintain personal hygiene, drink lots of water, keep your vagina clean, need to void following sexual intercourse, and have a healthy diet. If your immunity is decreased, to tend to be more prone for infections.hope I was helpful to you.

Hope this may help you
