Question:

I have been suffering from vaginal itching since last Ramadan, and it causes some secretions to be discharged. Due to this, I used to rub my vulva in Ramadan, and this was usually accompanied by a feeling of pleasure and secretions. I do not know whether these secretions included vaginal fluid or not, because I have been suffering from vaginal itching for a long period and ointments are of no avail. So, am I required to make up for these days?

Answer:
All perfect praise be to Allah, the Lord of the Worlds. I testify that there is none worthy of worship except Allah, and that Muhammad  sallallaahu  `alayhi  wa  sallam ( may  Allah exalt his mention ) is His Slave and Messenger.
 
You should not make up for these days because vaginal secretions do not invalidate the fast as unanimously stated by scholars, even if they are accompanied by a feeling of pleasure.
Hence, it is apparent that these secretions are natural, and they only require performing ablution after washing it and any stained body parts or clothes, if we consider that these secretions are impure. Your doubts about whether these secretions include vaginal fluid or not do not affect the validity of your fasting, unless they are confirmed.
Allah Knows best.
