Yeast Infection / Vaginitis FAQs
At Statcare, we diagnose and treat vaginitis. The treatment depends on the cause of the vaginitis. Treatment may be an antibiotic or antifungal medication either in a pill form or a cream or gel that is applied in the vagina. You will need to finish the course even if your symptoms go away earlier because the vaginitis may recur or relapse.
Yeast Infection: A yeast infection, also known as candidiasis, is one of the most common types of vaginitis. Yeast infections are caused by a fungus called Candida that is normally found in the vagina. When antibiotics kill normal vaginal bacteria, which keep yeast in check, the yeast can overgrow and cause infections.
Bacterial Vaginosis: Bacterial vaginosis is caused by an imbalance among the type of normal bacteria that colonize the vagina. A dull gray discharge with a strong fishy odor and itching are symptoms of this type of vaginitis. Antibiotics are used to treat bacterial vaginosis.
Trichomoniasis: Trichomoniasis is a sexually transmitted disease (STD) condition caused by the parasite Trichomonas vaginalis. Symptoms include a yellow-gray or green vaginal discharge with a fishy odor, along with burning, irritation, redness, and swelling around the genitals. Antibiotics are used to treat this type of vaginal infection.
