Welcome to icliniq.com.

Your doctor has prescribed you medicines thinking that you might have candidiasis (fungal infection).

If you can answer following questions I can help you better:

  • Do you have itching also?
  • Is the discharge plain or curdy?
  • Are you married? If yes, your partner also needs treatment.

In case you are married, your husband might also need tretment if it is a fungal infection.

Get a urine microscopy done and send the reports.

Tomorrow early morning, take a urine sample of yours and give it in the nearest laboratory.

These symptoms might be due to urinary tract infection. Do not worry.

Hope I have answered your query and if you have further questions, revert back to me.

Patient's Query


I just have burning sensation in the vulva during urination. I do not have any itching. The discharge has a mucous texture. And I am not married. I gave my urine sample for complete analysis. The test report is as follows:

  • pH - 5.
  • Specific gravity - 1.005.
  • Glucose - none.
  • Nitrites - negative.
  • Bilirubin - negative.
  • Crystals - none.
  • Proteins - trace.
  • RBC - 2-3 hpf.
  • Pus cells - 6-8hpf.
  • Epithelial cells - numerous.

They also said that I need to go for a urine culture to find out if there is any bacteria present.

Welcome to icliniq.com.

Thanks for reverting back and providing the details of urine microscopy.

  • In my opinion you are having Urinary Tract Infection (UTI).
  • Just take tablet Ciprofloxacin 500mg twice daily for five days after food.
  • Take this tablet and you will be fine. Do not worry.
  • Get back to us after five days for review.

Take care. Consult a general practitioner online for review --> https://www.icliniq.com/ask-a-doctor-online/general-practitioner
