Dear customer

Thank you for being online.

The symptoms you have described of having vinegar smelling vaginal discharge & itchy vulva is most likely due to yeast infection.It is one of the most common infection in females.

For confirmation,you can take a home test:

http://www.monistat.com/vaginal-health-products/complete-care/vaginal-health-test

Following is recommended for you now:

· Apply ointment monistat vaginal cream.It is a broad spectrum anti-fungal agent.It is available as over the counter without prescription & will help you greatly.

· Probiotics are one of the most important parts of a Candida albicans/yeast infection cure..There are many brands of probiotics easily available as over the counter at your pharmacy.

If still after this the symptoms persists,then you need to make an appointment with your doctor as prescription oral antifungal medication like fluconazole (diflucan) or Itraconazole (sporanox) will then be required accordingly.Usually & most likely,the symptoms gets subside with these treatment & doctor visit & prescription medications are less likely required.

Thank you.

Hope this helped
