    Hello dear. Any recent unprotected sexual intercourse? Is the discharge foul smelling? You may be having an infection or a urinary tract infection especially if you also experience pain while urinating and more frequent urination. See your Doctor for a urine microscopy and high vaginal swab if indicated. Take care

    the discharge isn't foul smelling and no unprotected sex recently because I just treated an infection, I don't feel any sort of pain at all.this are the drugs I took(amoxcillin,fluconazole,moxifloxacin,loxagyl,vitc and gynocare pessery) about a month ago. the itch doesn't occur inside just d outer part that it occurs in and it's not so bad because I don't even scratch I just have that tingy feeling also went for those test before the treatment at lasuth. what kind of antibiotics can I use or pessery please I can't go for another test it's very expensive.. thanks

    It was good you asked a follow up question. It is most likely due to the antibiotics you used in the last month. They have a way of making opportunistic infections like candidiasis which is fungal to thrive. I will advise you stay away from drugs for now. Just keep the area clean and dry, it will eventually resolve. If it persists after a week or two, you can see your Doctor for treatment with antifungal.
