Patient Question

Hello Doctor,

I hope this message finds you well. Recently, I've been experiencing a concerning issue. Over the past two days, I've noticed a creamy discharge with a foul smell. This isn't the first time it's happened; in fact, it's occurred around 4 to 5 times between September and December. The first time I experienced it, I sought treatment and was prescribed Candida-CL capsules.

Hello, Thank you for reaching out to Dr. Galen. Please find the below response to your query.

Given the recurrence of your symptoms, it's imperative to conduct thorough investigations. Firstly, we need to examine the discharge and conduct a culture test. This will help identify any specific pathogens or abnormalities present. Additionally, we should consider blood tests for sexually transmitted infections (STIs) due to the recurrent nature of your symptoms.

Moreover, considering the possibility of a broader health issue, it's prudent to include tests for diabetes. High blood sugar levels can predispose individuals to various infections, including those affecting the genital area.

In terms of treatment, our approach will depend on the underlying cause of the discharge. It could stem from bacterial, parasitic, fungal, viral, or even a combination of these factors. Therefore, treatment modalities may involve both local and oral medications tailored to address the specific causative agent.

Furthermore, if an STI is detected, it's crucial to consider partner evaluation and treatment. This is essential for preventing reinfection and ensuring the well-being of both parties involved.

In summary, addressing your symptoms requires a comprehensive diagnostic approach, encompassing various tests to pinpoint the underlying cause. Once identified, appropriate treatment measures will be instituted to alleviate your discomfort and promote recovery.

Thank you for entrusting us with your health concerns. Rest assured, we will work together to resolve this issue effectively.

Warm regards,
