Yeast infection: Once a yeast infection has set in, it's very hard to get rid of it with home remedies (there are none that i know of that work safely and consistently). Over the counter yeast infection treatments are safe, affordable and most of all, they work! and you don't need a doctor's prescription to purchase them.

See your doc: Sme people have reported that eating yoghurt helps keep a yeast infection away. However, if yours is as bad as you say you should probably consider an antifungal cream. This may not be easily treatable with non-medicinal means.

Needs testing: Vaginal discharge requires an examination to determine the cause and treatment. Bacterial vaginosis is the most common cause and often has a vaginal odor. Vaginal itching can be a sign of a yeast infection. Sometimes vaginal discharge can be a sign of a sexual transmitted infection. Testing is important to determine the treatment and keep you and your partner safe.

Must see: You have to see your doctor for evaluation and to discuss treatment options. This may include referral to a dermatologist and a gynecologist.
