Hello,

It may be due to bacterial vaginitis.

For further assessment, you may require complete hemogram, discharge culture sensitivity, urine analysis after gynecologist consultation.

You may require antibiotics after culture report.

Maintain proper hygiene.

Use V-wash locally.

Keep your self hydrated.

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

Regards,
Dr. Shyam B. Kale, General & Family Physician
