Welcome to ehealthforum,
Changed vaginal discharge could be indicative of possibility of infection. She should consider visiting her doctor/gynecologist at the earliest for examination and vaginal swab/smear test done on the discharge to identify causative agent. Get started on treatment as indicated. Take the complete course of treatment. Drink plenty of water. Avoid vaginal douching, use of harsh soap, perfumes or deodorants in the area. Use loose cotton undergarments. Avoid tight fitting clothes. Keep the area dry and clean.
If you are sexually active, you should also get treated simultaneously to prevent re-infection. Avoid having intercourse while being on treatment.
