Assuming u have UWorld, just type sexually transmitted infections.. that table is the best IMO
the question stem states a "a scent vaginal discharge" is that a distractor in the question.
"Scant" means very little.
Chancroid is described as an ulcer.. whilst in this question they mentioned "vesicles". Pretty much only herpes is vesicular
They mentioned ulcers too. I chose chancroid as well, couldn't find a clue to rule it out. Also thought "discharge" was pointing you towards a bacterial infection. But guess I'm wrong :)
