Vaginal infection/UTI

Patient

Symptoms:  Bad smell, pain when urinating, brownish colored discharge
Doctor

A:   Hello,
Thanks for the query.

Looks like you are having vaginitis and an UTI as well.They can co-exist. You need to see a Gynecologist. The Doctor would wish to do a high vaginal swab test for culture and also a urine culture. Based on the reports an antibiotic would be started. Your partner may also need an evaluation and treatment. Avoid unprotected intercourse till you are completely cured of symptoms. Drink plenty of water daily and also maintain sanitary hygiene.

Hope this helped.
Regards
