Hello I'm PATIENT I have been facing with vaginal discharge problem since 6-7 months. I've already visited a gynaecologist before but she said that problem will be solved itself. But that was not cured and the discharge is coming out in yellow color with foul smell. It is really irritating for me. Please help me out with my problem.

Gynaecologist
Try using candid V gel. If that does not help within 3-4 days, please visit me at my clinic in Gurgaon for an internal examination.
