In brief: Yeast infection
Vaginal itching/burning and a cottage cheese-like discharge could be signs of a vaginal yeast infection.
Treatment = over the counter yeast infection medication (like miconazole). If the symptoms persist after this treatment, or if there is pain, then the patient should be evaluated by a doctor since it could mean a different diagnosis.

You can try using over the counter yeast infection medication (like miconazole) if you have these symptoms. If the symptoms persist after this treatment, or if you are experiencing any pain, it should be evaluated by a doctor since it could mean a different diagnosis.
