Our expert says:
If you are unable to consult a private physician, you should consult your doctor at your nearest clinic. It is necessary to have a papsmear done and to take a swab of the discharge for analysis by a lab, to determine the type of infection that you have. It is also important to have a STD (sexually transmitted disease) profile done.
Do not continue using the Closcript vaginal cream, as we are unsure about the cause for your discharge. A hygiene wash or the use of normal bath soap, can aggrevate a yeast infection of the vagina. Rather take a shower and wash your private parts with a clean wet cloth.
The thrush treatment probably did not work because your infection is not due to a yeast infection. You should not take another dose of Metronida before you have consulted a doctor.
For the burning, itching and swelling, you can apply Closcript vaginal cream to the outside of the vagina. This will alleviate your symptoms but I am unable to advise how long it will take to clear up, as we do not know what the exact cause is.
It is imperative to consult a doctor.
