I've recently been treated for bacterial vaginosis I finished the meds but now I'm have this terrible itching and my discharge is yellow greenish?

Hello I have been haveing serious vagina itching for a week i don't have bacterial vaginosis or STDs or yeast what else could this be?
Was taking Metronidazole for bacterial vaginosis but it caused severe itching and a foul odour. Does it mean I have a yeast fungal infection instead?

But regardless of odor, the itching could indicate a yeast infection. Allergy to metronidazole unlikely but possible. You also need to be checked for other STDs like gonorrhea, chlamydia, and trichomonas if not yet done. Discuss with your doctor or clinic. ...Read more
