Your : Your symptoms could be any one of a number of things including a yeast infection, bacterial vaginosis, trichamonas, or some other infection or it could be something more rare such as a dermatitis. It could also be normal discharge though the yellow color and itching are more concerning. You need a complete gyne exam with cultures and examination of your vaginal fluid. By doing all of this, hopefully your doctor will figure out what is causing your symptoms and be able to treat you appropriately. Good luck!

See your doctor: Your doctor will have to evaluate you. Part of that evaluation will be to test the discharge to identify it specifically, then treat you.
