What causes vaginal discharge post vulvectomy?

Vulvectomy done, I saw the doctor 10 days post op and everything was good. 2 days ago I started with a pus-like vaginal discharge. Though to be specific - it s coming from the top, near the urethra area, I believe. It s been fairly constant these last 2 days, and is thick and quite a bit of discharge. Sometimes it looks like blood is also mixed in. What does this mean?! Why am I having this discharge?

Most probably it will be an infectious cause.

Consult a gynecologist and plan for a swab.

As of now, you can use Clotrimazole lotion for symptomatic relief.

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