I've had very persistent and annoying itching just inside my vagina, on the inner labia and slightly on my anal area for the past 5 days...persuming it was thrush which I have experienced before, I inserted a canesten pill about 3 days ago , but it hasn't helped at all and the itching has gotten worse! I also have occasional burning when I urinate and a small amount of brown coloured discharge. I've tried swapping my shower gels in case I was reacting to them, but no change. Ive ruled out thrush...what might be wrong with me?

    If the canestan didn’t help and made it worce and the discharge is brown, it could be bacterial vaginosis. Does the discharge havea distinctive horrid fishy smell?

      As far as I can tell there is no smell at all , which is confusing me. I have examined as best as I can. And the brown discharge is very little, only when I wipe. It's probably worth mentioning that I have experienced hemorrhoids the last few days which I read can cause itching and infections in the vagina? Could this explain it?

      Couldnthe brown discharge actually be spotting (blood)? The haemorrhoids themselves don’t cause intching and infection in the vagina, as far as I know. It is the haemorrhoid cream that can do this if it contains hydrocortisone. I once used rather too much haemorrhoid cream containing hydrocortisone and in the night it spread to my vaginal opening - that caused itching which developed into thrush.
