My clitoris is extremely itchy. Underlying cause?

My clitorous is extremely itchy there is also a hardish white discharge around my clit and it gets stuck in the hood of the clitorous which is really hard to get out, I am sexually active, and have just come off my period but I was very late on. Im really worried.

If you have been experiencing itching around the clitoris and it's not getting subsided on its own then yeast infection is the most likely diagnosis.

Please don't apply antibiotic cream or steroid cream as they would not treat the fungus but instead increase it.

You have to be placed on oral FLUCONAZOLE 150mg tab once a week for 2 weeks and apply local miconazole 1% ointment thrice a day over the clitoris. You have to keep the local area clean and moisture-free.

Vinegar washes can decrease the itching for some time but it is not the treatment. Wear loose cotton undergarments to avoid constant irritation and friction of clitoris which can again cause itching.

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

Take care
