Hi there,

This is Dr. D.J., experienced Internal Medicine Specialist.

I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.

Dr. D.J. :

Vaginal itching can be caused by the yeast infection.

Dr. D.J. :

This is common with vaginal atrophy.

Dr. D.J. :

Vaginal discharge may not be always present.

Dr. D.J. :

Yeast infection will respond to over the counter anti fungal vaginal cream like Monistat 3 day treatment or Clotrimazole vaginal cream.

Dr. D.J. :

Hence, you can try this if you are not able to see your doctor soon.

Best wishes,
