Itchy and Swollen vigina
I've been having this problem for about three weeks now. I get this thick light yellow discharge and it sometimes smells a little. The minute it starts, my vigina (from the clitoris, down) gets very itchy. And it's one of those unbarebly itches. Than i start rubbing it really hard, almost like scratcing it, than it gets swollen. Yesterday i had to take of my underwear cause it started hurting me. I couldn't even keep my legs together and i find it difficult to walk. I can't even touch it, that's how sore it gets.

I tried using pantyliners but it didn't work. I even tried that Canesten ointment, it's buring even more.

Is there somebody who can help me with this, or at least have an idea what i can use or what can be the course of it.

If the Canesten hasn't helped, you will need to see a doctor to decide on treatment.
