Hello,
Cottage cheese discharge is due to candida infection but grayish thin discharge is due to bacterial vaginosis. You can use metronidazole gel(metrogel) or clindamycin cream(cleocin) for local
application on vagina.They have fewer side effects.But pls inform your
gynecologist before talking them.

Hope it helps.Take care and pls do keep me posted on how you are doing or if you have any additional queries.Warm regards.

Hello,
The discharge sounds like Bacterial vaginosis but exact diagnosis can be confirmed only after getting a swab culture of the discharge.I would suggest you to get a swab culture of the discharge or cervix after consulting a gynecologist.

I hope it helps.Take care and regards.
