Learn simple treatments for Vaginal Discharge & what it is all about by reading this article.
Vaginal Discharge: A mix of fluid and cells from the vagina that varies from whitish and sticky to clear and watery, possibly associated with an odour.
- burning sensation
- pain, especially during sexual intercourse
- vulval swelling
Self care that can aid in treatment include cleaning the genital area with mild soap and warm water to help to reduce odour. For yeast infections, using antifungal medication (Clotrimazole cream) may help to reduce itching and other symptoms. To prevent further irritation, it's best to avoid douches, scented soaps and hygiene sprays.
Please speak to your Doctor or Pharmacist if you notice;
- unusual odour, colour or consistency of viginal fluid
- itching, burning or redness
- feel vulval or pelvic pain especially during sexual intercourse
- develop a bloody discharge that's not a period
