Greetings!

Thank you for your question. I understand your worries regarding your condition.

For your information, the itchiness and leukorrhea can be caused by many conditions and each of them need different approach and treatment. I am encourage you to refer to your attending doctor first before taking any medication. You also cannot simply consume any medications from pharmacy without knowing the exact diagnosis.

Itchiness and leukorrhea can be caused by:

  • Genital infection
  • Eczema
  • Fungal infection
  • Lack of hygiene

Seek help from a gynaecologist to lessen your worry regarding your vaginal discharge.
