Hi,
Welcome to ehealthforum,
Altered vaginal discharge that you describe suggests possibility of vaginal infection. Do not ignore your symptoms if it has been persistent. Visit your doctor/gynecologist at the earliest for further examination and vaginal swab/smear test to identify causative agent. Get started on appropriate treatment to help you control the symptoms (as indicated by examination findings and investigation results). Avoid vaginal douching, or use of harsh soap or perfumes in the area. Use loose cotton undergarments and avoid use of tight fitting clothes. Be in regular monitoring and follow-up with your treating doctor/gynecologist and report any new/abnormal symptoms immediately. Drink plenty of water. Take adequate rest. Maintain healthy diet and lifestyle. If infective cause is detected, and if you are sexually active, get your partner also treated simultaneously to prevent chances of re-infection, and avoid having intercourse while being on treatment.
Take care.
