Vaginal doesn't contain active ingredient for yeast or bacteria infection.
You could have yeast infection, bacteria infection (if the discharge has odor).
You should use over-the-counter yeast medication such as Monistat. If it doesn't work, you should see your PCP to have the discharge examined under the microscope & cultured and get prescription medication.
