Obgyn exam: Consider having your Obgyn do an examination. Yeast infections do not typically cause a brown discoloration of the periurethral area. Your doctor can do a pelvic exam. They can confirm the yeast infection has resolved. They can evaluate for other causes of genital itching and determine if any hyper pigmentation abnormalities are present.
