Patient's Query

Hello doctor,

I usually have a slight on and off vaginal itching after my periods, for which I consulted a doctor. She advised me to take two tablets of Candiforce 200 and it stopped. However, these days I still have light vaginal itching on and off. My period date is on the 28th. Kindly help as I am worried.

Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

I suggest you do a high vaginal swab (HVS) to rule out any infection as it will also tell you which medicines will suit you.

Follow up with the report.

It does not cause any pain or discomfort and can be done in a minute's time.
