I think I may have a yeast infection I'm not

Patient : I think I may have a yeast infection. I'm not really sure what to do. Who should I go see about it? The hospital? The clinic? My family doctor? I've never been to the doctors about anything this personal before. How do I treat it? How long would it take to treat?
Symptoms:  Itching, redness, discharge

Thus, you need an examination. Do not worry, you should not have a problem. Wishing you the best. Hope this helps you.
