Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Basically if you experience vaginal discharge that has abnormal vaginal discharge characteristics (yellowish, greenish, grayish, brownish, smelly, odorous, accompanied by itching or pain in the vagina, accompanied by pain when urinating), then you are strongly recommended to do an examination to doctor. Abnormal vaginal discharge can be caused by bacterial, fungal, parasitic infections, or it can also be caused by an imbalance of normal bacteria in the vagina. Treatment for each of these conditions can vary. Therefore, do an examination with a dermatologist and genitals beforehand so that you can evaluate and look for the exact cause of your abnormal vaginal discharge and can be given treatment according to the cause.
Some things you can do right now:
Do not douche or wash and soak the vagina using soap, chemicals, or certain herbal ingredients
Do not have sexual relations first
Clean your vaginal area well when you take a shower, just clean it using warm water
Clean your vaginal area well after you urinate and defecate, dry it well afterwards before you use your underwear
Use pantiliners to collect your vaginal discharge and keep your pubic area dry. Make sure you change your pantiliner at least every 4 hours, or sooner if the pantiliner is already wet with sweat or vaginal discharge.
Don't use underpants or outer trousers that are too tight and too layered
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
