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.
