You may be having bacterial vaginosis (vulvovaginitis). This is a caused when there is an overgrowth of normally residing flora (bacteria and/or fungi) on the vagina. Vulvovaginitis presents with vaginal discharge, irritation, and itching.
I would suggest you to consult your primary care physician to rule out the exact pathogen that is causing your vaginosis and prescribe the right treatment for it. In the majority of cases, this type of infections are caused by Fungus or bacteria that are part of your normal flora and sometimes due to factors that change or alter the PH of your vagina such as Douching, applying deodorants and cause overgrowth of this entities. I wish you a prompt recovery.
