Slight vaginal discharge with traces of blood, intense itching around the vaginal opening. Thrush or STI?

Hi. I wonder if you can offer some advice. I have today started with what appears to be the symptoms of a vaginal yeast infection but there is also a slight discharge which appears to have some blood in it. The discharge started before the itching and the itching feels to be well inside the vagina rather than lower down/around the opening which it how I usually experience thrush. I would normally just get some canesten over the counter but am wondering whether the blood in the discharge could be a sign of a different infection/STI? Is blood in the discharge a normal sympton of thrush please?

Hello there,
The itching, discharge and some blood along with the discharge point to a severe vulvo-vaginal infection.
Rather than taking over the counter medicines, it is advisable that you get a proper check up done and take treatment as per the doctors advise.
Hope this information was useful to you.
Take care.
