I have a question, the inside of my vaginal wall is coated…

Customer Question
Hello I have a question...
Hello I have a question, the inside of my vaginal wall is coated with white stuff and there is also a watery off white discharge that kind of leaks out. I don't think my flesh is white, however the entire inside is completely coated. I am also experiencing some bring/itching (more burning than itching) but not during urination.

Hi! Thank you for your response, I am privileged you ave allowed me to help you improve your health. There are a few preliminary questions I need you to answer in order to give you the best advise.

1. Have you used any antibiotics in the 2-3 weeks before this discharge started? 2. How much water do you drink daily (cups, ounces or liters)?

No antibiotics, and Im not sure how much water I drink, maybe 4 water bottles or so?
OB GYN Doctor: Dr. Kala, OB/GYN (Doctor) replied 2 years ago

Thanks for your reply. The symptoms you describe sounds like you may have a Candida infection, commonly known as a yeast infection. This is due to a normal inhabitant in the vagina, Candida, which can become excessive and cause a thick white pasty or chunky discharge. I find women who are not consuming sufficient water or who are consuming excessive sugars & carbohydrates or women who have diabetes to be at highest risk. This can be treated when diagnosed using an anti-fungal creme, ovule or suppository. Before diagnosis you can try reducing the sugars & carbohydrates in your diet and drinking sufficient water (at least 64 oz /d unless you also drink caffeine, then you need much more because caffeine dries out your body's tissues.)

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
