Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com. I am dr. Princess Claudya will answer your questions.
There are two types of vaginal discharge, namely normal and abnormal vaginal discharge. Normal vaginal discharge is characterized by clear mucus, thick consistency like egg white, not itchy, painless, and odorless.
The abnormal vaginal discharge has the following causes and characteristics:
Fungal infection (candidiasis): characterized by white discharge, lumpy like cheese, and itchy Bacterial vaginal infection (bacterial vaginosis): characterized by grayish, fishy-smelling vaginal discharge Trichomonas vaginalis parasitic infection (trichomoniasis): characterized by greenish vaginal discharge , foul smelling, and foamy Sexually transmitted infections, both GO and non-GO: yellowish white vaginal discharge, accompanied by abdominal pain due to inflammation of the cervix (cervicitis)
The medicine you mentioned, is anti-fungal. Did you get this medicine after seeing a doctor or buying it yourself? If you have seen a doctor, please continue the treatment according to the doctor's recommendation. However, if you buy it yourself, you should first check with your doctor to determine the cause of your vaginal discharge and then adjust it to the treatment. Because taking drugs without knowing the cause and the correct dosage of drugs is very dangerous.
When adjusted to your complaints of milky, itchy vaginal discharge, chances are that your vaginal discharge is caused by a fungus. However, it is also possible for other causes.
For that, you should determine the cause of your complaint by checking with a general practitioner first. The doctor will dig further your complaints and will do an examination of your genital area and if necessary, the white sample will be taken for examination in the laboratory. And after that the doctor will provide treatment for your complaint according to the underlying conditions. If there is no improvement, the doctor will refer you to a specialist in genital or gynecological skin.
Some things you can do to maintain the health of your female organs are:
Keep your feminine area clean. Clean the vagina from front to back Dry the female area with a clean towel / tissue after cleaning with water Avoid using feminine soap because an incorrect pH can lead to the growth of excess germs in the female area Don't wear pants that are too tight Avoid wearing pantyliners because they can cause dampness on the vagina and prone to irritation
That is the explanation from me. Hope it helps and benefits. Get well soon :)
