Vaginal yeast infections (also called yeast vaginitis or vaginal candidiasis) are a common problem in women. Vaginal yeast infection is mostly caused by antibiotics, pregnancy, contraceptives pills, IUD and certain health issues like diabetes and HIV. It is possible for a woman to transmit a yeast infection to a male sex partner.
Symptoms of Vaginal Yeast Infection
Treatment: We prescribe oral and topical antifungal such as diflucan
Symptoms of a yeast infection are similar to a number of other conditions, including bacterial infection or a STD. It is often not possible to know if itching is caused by yeast or other causes.
Most yeast infections go away within a few days after starting treatment. However, if you do not get better within a few days after finishing treatment, call your doctor or nurse for advice.
