Hi,
Welcome to ehealthforum,
Altered vaginal discharge could suggest chances of vaginal infection. She should not ignore the symptoms if these have been persistent. She should visit her doctor/gynecologist at the earliest for thorough examination, vaginal swab/smear test to look for the underlying cause. Treatment as appropriate (based on examination findings and investigation results) would be started to help her control the symptoms. She should avoid vaginal douching, or use of harsh soap or perfumes in the area. She should use loose cotton undergarments and avoid use of tight fitting clothes. She should be in regular monitoring and follow-up with the treating doctor/gynecologist and report any new/abnormal symptoms immediately. If infective cause is detected, and if she is sexually active, she should get her partner also treated simultaneously to prevent chances of re-infection, and avoid having intercourse while being on treatment.
Take care.
