isoniazid sometimes can cause itching as a side effect that may be one cause for your symptoms,
other possibility is vaginal infection,
your doctor might have suspected fungal infection and given treatment for that,
sometimes there is chance for mixed infection,
so you better undergo culture and sensitivity of the swab from the vaginal discharge and take treatment accordingly.
also discuss the possibility of drug's side effect with your doctor.
take care.
