How are you? What other symptoms are present? This could be vulvovaginitis or inflammation/ infection of the vulva and vagina. It can be caused by sexually transmitted diseases, allergens, bacteria, yeasts, viruses, and even chemicals found in bubble baths, soaps, and perfumes. Another cause of vulvovaginitis is bacterial vaginosis, an overgrowth of certain types of bacteria in the vagina. Bacterial vaginosis may cause a thin, grey vaginal discharge and a fishy odor. While trichomonas vaginitis, presents with genital itching, a vaginal odor, and a heavy vaginal discharge, which may be yellow-grey or green in color. It is best that you have this evaluated further by your gynecologist for proper management. The cause of the infection determines the appropriate treatment.
