Symptoms of a Yeast Infection

If you are experiencing the following symptoms, chances are you may have a yeast infection:

  • Mild to intense vaginal itching
  • A lumpy, white vaginal discharge that resembles cottage cheese
  • Vaginal soreness, irritation or burning, especially during intercourse
  • Redness around the vagina

You should only self-medicate if you’ve been diagnosed with vulvovaginal candidiasis in the past and if your current symptoms seem to be the same. If, however, you’re experiencing frequently recurring infections, abdominal pain, fever, foul-smelling or greenish-grayish vaginal discharges, you may have another type of infection and should consult your doctor.
