Welcome to ehealthforum,
Altered color of vaginal discharge, itching are suggestive of vaginal infections. Do not ignore your symptoms. Do not delay in visiting your doctor/gynecologist. Go ahead with getting vaginal swab/smear test to identify causative agent and get started on treatment as appropriate. Drink plenty of water. Avoid vaginal douching, use of harsh soap or perfumes in the area. Use loose cotton undergarments and avoid tight fitting clothes. If you are sexually active, get your partner also treated simultaneously to prevent chances of re-infection and avoid having unprotected intercourse while both of you are on treatment course.
