Persisting symptoms, bright orange discharge. Taken Canesten oral capsule and pessary. Help?

Hi, I used the Canesten oral capsule and the cream almost two weeks ago now, a week later the symptoms had not subsided so I used the pessary and continued with the cream. Now at about 12 days since beginning treatment, I have bright orange discharge and the symptoms don t seem to have subsided. I can t get a doctors appointment for another 3 days yet. Help?!

thanks for your query
A brightly colored orange vaginal discharge is likely an indication that the patient has some sort of vaginal infection. infections that can cause orange vaginal discharge are bacterial vaginosis and trichomoniasis.
Bacterial vaginosis is an overgrowth of a bacteria called Gardnerella Vaginalis. This causes vaginal itching and fowl smelling vaginal discharge. Trichomoniasis is caused by a parasite. It can cause vaginal itching, painful intercourse, and fowl smelling vaginal discharge. Both of them are treated with the antibiotic.
As you are currently taking only canesten which contain fluconazole antifungal and pessary which also contain antifungal medications;so you have to take antibiotyics like azithromycin 1 gm stat,metronidazole 500/400 mg three time a day for 5 day after consultation to your doctor
