Infection? STD?: There has been little or no research on urethral discharge in women. In men, almost all cases are STDs (e.g. chlamydia, gonorrhea, trichomonas).

It is in my opinion more important to find out what you have and help you get better. For that you will need to be seen and they will need to run some tests on the discharge or urine most likely; be safe. -Peace. ...Read more

I have been having burning while urinating & a yellow discharge coming from urethra what causes other than a std could this be I hope its not?

Urethritis: Most of these symptoms I'm afraid are STD related. Gonorrhea and chlamydia come to mind. There are of course others, but these would be less likely. In some cases, you could have a problem within the urethra itself - but I think 'common things are common' and you should get checked for an STD. The good news is, these are curable, and you can go back to normal healthy living after treatment. See MD ...Read more

What can cause a brighter yellow discharge but very thin in a 50 yr. Old woman? And might be going thru menopause. Itches a little sometimes.

I'm a female, 15. And I discharge yellow white stuff constantly. What does this mean? I don't know what it is. I gets gluey to. And happens all the time

Vaginal: Vaginal discharge can be normal or represent another problem, such as an infection. I recommend that you make an appointment with your doctor for an exam and treatment if needed.
You may have a yeast or bacterial infection. If you are sexually active you may have an std (sexually transmitted disease) like gonorrhea or chlamydia.
Regardless you should be evaluated. If you are embarassed and don't want to tell a parent or guardian, there are many free clinics for teens for this type of issue. Look for a family planning clinic in your area, they should be able to help you or guide you to a facility that can help.
Good luck. ...Read more

Hi, 20 year old female, yellow crusty discharge from one nipple, its also itchy and the nipple is dry and cracked.?

Areolar rash: Studies show eczema can occur in this area, however the yellow crusty discharge gives me concern for impetiginization of likely eczema/atopic dermatitis in your nipple area. Please see MD. Likely treatment will be a steroid cream and topical antibiotic.
