Maybe: The vaginal tissues are delicate. Deodorant doesn't belong in your vagina. Symptoms of a yeast infection may include: burning, redness & itching of the vulva; burning with urination & vaginal intercourse & a clumpy, white, vaginal discharge with no odor. Sometimes the discharge isn’t apparent. See your doctor if not improving.

Please see a Gynecologist who will do a thorough evaluation of your female reproductive organs and make recommendations. If you have no confidence in your Dr. see another for a 2nd opinion.
