A:   Hello
Thank you posting your query on “Ask the Doctor”

Pricking sensation in vagina occurs in presence of infection and due to dryness secondary to hormonal changes.
Infection could be bacterial infection or fungal infection. Infection is usually associated with white vaginal discharge. Curd like discharge suggests fungal (Candida) infection.
You are suggested to visit your doctor and get the vaginal swab tested to rule out infection.

0Your Doctor may start drug sensitive antibiotics and painkillers.
Wish you good health!
