Any infection should be seen and treated by a medical doctor. If it is indeed an infection it will need antibiotics, whcih a doctor has to prescribe. You also need to have the source of the infection checked out, if you have s eregular sex partenr, he or she might have an infection too.

There are no over the counter treatments for sexual transmitted infections.
