Signs of Yeast Infections

Find out if it is a vaginal infection so you can get relief

Some everyday feminine itching may not be related to a vaginal infection. That’s why it’s so important to determine the cause of the symptoms. If you think you may have a vaginal infection, see a doctor right away for treatment.

Yeast infections

Yeast infection symptoms can be very uncomfortable, but are usually not serious if diagnosed and treated early on. It’s important to get a diagnosis of your vaginal infection from a doctor, to make sure the treatment is right for you, and to rule out a more serious infection. The main symptom of yeast infections is itchiness, though it's not the only one.


Signs of yeast infections may include the following:

  • Intense vaginal itching.
  • Burning, especially during urination.
  • A white vaginal discharge that may look like cottage cheese, mostly odorless.
  • Pain during sexual intercourse.
  • Swelling and soreness in the vulva (the skin that surrounds your vagina).

Repeated yeast infections can be triggered by other, less serious, illnesses or physical and mental stress, anything that may lessen your immunity. Vaginal contraceptives, menopause, damp or tight-fitting clothing and feminine hygiene products, such as sprays and deodorants, don't cause yeast infections, but they may make you more susceptible to getting a yeast infection.1

Bacterial Vaginosis (BV)

Bacterial vaginosis (BV) is a vaginal infection caused when too much of certain bacteria change the normal balance of bacteria in the vagina, according to the CDC. 

Signs of bacterial vaginosis (BV) may include the following:

  • Thin white or gray vaginal discharge, odor, pain, itching or burning in the vagina.
  • Strong fish-like odor, especially after sex.
  • Burning when urinating and itching around the outside of the vagina or both.

What do I do until I can get to the doctor for vaginal infection treatment?

Yeast and vaginal infections can only be diagnosed and treated by a doctor. Schedule an appointment with your doctor for proper diagnosis and treatment, as lack of appropriate treatment can lead to serious complications. Once you have had a yeast or vaginal infection before, you may be able to recognize future symptoms and begin to relieve them with AZO Yeast® Plus until you are able to see your doctor. Only AZO Yeast Plus provides both yeast and vaginal infection symptom relief in one convenient pill.
