Vaginal discharge is regularly a normal and usual occurrence. Yet, there are few types of discharge that can specify an infection. Abnormal discharge may be yellow or green, chunky in consistency, or have a foul odour. Abnormal discharge is usually caused by yeast or bacterial infection. If you notice any discharge that looks unusual or foul smells, you should see your doctor for diagnosis and treatment. Especially in young girls and teenagers, all discharges in abnormally more or abnormal in colour or abnormal smells. A mild white discharge with yellowish tinge, no need to worry much, this is not usually an infection, but needs to be seen.
