Did your doctor look at the discharge under the microscope?

Expert:  khagihara replied 1 year ago.

Very itchy? Frothy discharge? What color is it? Is the vagina swollen red? Is it cottage cheese like?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Itchy but not very itchy,Its creamy and cottage cheese like and no the vagina is not swollen
Expert:  khagihara replied 1 year ago.

It seems to be yeast infection because it is like cottage cheese. There are several kinds of yeast. Finidazole may not work for your yeast infection. You should go to a good hospital so that the doctor looks at the discharge under the microscope and cultures it.

Ok, so would i have to take any medication gven with my spouse??? If its yeast infection what kind of drugs would i gve prescribed??
Expert:  khagihara replied 1 year ago.

If it is different kind of yeast infection, boric acid vaginal suppository could work. But she should have the discharge cultured just in case.
