Vaginal discharge



Keep genital area clean with mild soap and warm water. Don't use douches, scented soaps or hygiene sprays. Fungal medicines are available without a prescription for yeast infections.

When to make a doctor's appointment

See a healthcare professional if:

  • An odd odor, color or texture.
  • Itching, burning or change of color.
  • Pelvic pain.
  • Bloody discharge that's not a period.
  • Symptoms don't improve or get worse after a week.
