Hello,

I've been working hard to find a Professional to assist you with your question, but sometimes finding the right Professional can take a little longer than expected.

I wonder whether you're ok with continuing to wait for an answer. If you are, please let me know and I will continue my search. If not, feel free to let me know and I will cancel this question for you.

Thank you,

Shantal

Hello

 

You have to go to a doctor. If this is an STD, you need prescription antibiotics. If it is yeast, you can use over the counter medicine.

 

But you have to find out.

 

For example, garnerella needs flagyl.

 

Chlamydia or gonorrhea need the correct anti bacterial.

 

2 grams of azithromycin will cover both...but you have to know with testing.

 

At age 26 you should have been getting pap smears to screen for cervical dysplasia and HPV...so this is over due.
