Sounds like a yeast infection. Usually infection with yeast Candida results in white discharge. Treatment wit cotrimazole suppositories will provide prompt relief and it is available over the counter.

However if the discharge persists, youu should see a doctor for a rectal exam. Also if it is indeed a yeast infection , the cause of infection should be found out. Use of antibiotics or any illness resulting in decreased immunity can predispose the body to yeast/fungal infections.

I hope this helps.
