Hello, I had some...

Hello, I had some itching in the vaginal area with some white discharge so I went to the urgent care and they prescribed me fluconazole, I took it and the symptoms have actually gotten worse , I got a thick yellowish green discharge with a lot of discomfort and swelling in the vaginal area. What can this be?

Doctor's Assistant: Any recent injuries? How long have you been dealing with the swelling?

No, it started today

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

I was tested for STD s 2 months ago and. Everything was negative

Okay

Dear customer

Thank you for being online.

The symptoms you have described of having itching,thick yellowish green discharge with a lot of discomfort and swelling in the vaginal area seems to be due to infection called bacterial vaginosis.It is caused by a combination of multiple bacteria.It is the most common vaginal infection.

Fluconazole does not treat bacterial infection.

It is treatable with antibiotics prescribed by a health care provider.

Also you need to do following to maintain good genital hygiene:

· Keep you genital area clean & dry .

· Remove wet, sweaty bottom clothing as soon as possible.

· Always wipe yourself from front to back after experiencing a bowel movement to prevent fecal matter from coming into contact with your vagina, which can cause a bacterial infection.

· Avoid perfumed soaps, gels and antiseptics as these can affect the healthy balance of bacteria and pH levels in the vagina and cause irritation.

So my best advise for you is to please make an appointment with your gynecologist & then antibiotics will be prescribed accordingly.

This will cure the infection.

Thank you.

Hope this helped
