welcome to healthcaremagic
you are having infections and most probably it is mixed infection
and you are having it for long time .you better consult a gynecologist and get check up and get treatment
if you are sexually active your partner also needs treatment simultaneously

Hi Moo Wah;
welcome to HealthcareMagic
The white discharge with blood since it is itching it is surely a infection fungal/bacterial so it will require treatment.You will have to take a proper course of antibiotic and anti-fungal orally as well as if required locally.Better way will be to consult a Gynaecologist for physical examination to find the type of infection and the doctor will prescribe medicine according to the type of infection.
Thanks

I ve been taking amphotericin B for oral thrush for 3 days now, 10mg x2 daily. The thrush has affected my tongue and the upper back of my mouth and is slowly subsiding. I ve had a an upper respiratory infection (Dr said Bacterial Virus), which has largely died down, the coughing is absolutely minimal now and there s virtually no phlegm. I ve been breathing through my mouth a lot (been sick for 3 weeks) and have had many throat lozenges to cope with the coughing. Have been on Roxithromycin now for 3 days. I ve never been prone to thrush. Have been under a lot of stress - earthquakes in Christchurch, NZ. Ok, my question. Still feeling very tired, unwell and drained. Could this be due to the antifungal drug?

I ve got a rash in the middle of my elbow which is like a spotty circle (with loads of smaller spots around it), its similar to ringworm which I ve had before in the same area, however it sometimes twinges with pain, feeling like my skin is being pulled taut. Its not like a stabbing pain but its like being pricked with a needle and is very discomforting. I ve been applying anti-fungal creams to it for a while now but it doesn t seem to be going down. I ve also done the tumbler test so I m moderately sure that its not meningitis.
