What causes itchy vaginal discharge?

I have been using estrace vaginal cream for dryness for about 4 months. In the last week I have experienced discharge and itching. There is quite a bit of discharge. Is this a yeast infection or is it just the discharge of dryness? I just picked up over the counter inserts for yeast infection. I'm not sure if I should use it.

Hi,
There is possibility of having yeast infection as well.
There is no problem if you have used anti-fungal suppositories vaginally.
Keep local hygiene proper.
Ok and take care.
