Yeast infection also called as candidiasis, is a quite common female condition. It is mostly related to the fungus Candida which is a naturally developing microorganism in the vaginal area. The bacteria, Lactobacillus maintain its growth and keep it in check. But in case there is an imbalance in the system, the bacteria will be ineffective. This would lead to overgrowth of the yeast that causes the yeast infections.
Identifying the signs and symptoms of the yeast infection is the initial step for treating this condition.
Not every woman demonstrates obvious symptoms during a yeast infection, particularly in the case where the infection is minor.
Yeast infection symptoms can include:
Most of the vaginal yeast infections do not discharge a vaginal odor; more commonly a fishy odor due to bacterial infections that is caused by the Candida albicans.
Treating the yeast infection could relieve the symptoms within just a few days. In severe cases, this might take up to 2 weeks.
In case a woman had a diagnosed yeast infection previously and believes that the present symptoms are due to yeast infection, it is sensible to ask a doctor about the self-treatment with an over the counter medication.
However, in case the symptoms do not improve or if they come back again, a visit to the doctor is warranted.
Each yeast infection could be different from the other, so the doctor would advise a treatment which would the best for you. Treatments are usually based on the severity of the symptoms.
For simple yeast infections, the doctor would usually recommend a 1-3 day use of an ointment, antifungal cream or a tablet.
