Yeast Infection Symptoms - How To
It is not overly difficult to diagnose a
yeast infection. This is because the main yeast infection
symptoms are usually painful (or uncomfortable at best!) and
the area will more than likely be incredibly itchy too.
the severity of the symptoms
will typically differ from person to person.
A yeast infection is also otherwise known as
Candida. The condition occurs when there is an overgrowth of
the organism "Candida Albicans". Every woman has a low level of
this organism present on the skin, but the problem occurs when
there is an over production of the organism. Due to the fact
that every woman's body is different, how your body might react
to a yeast infection could be entirely different to how your
friend's body reacts.
Therefore the Candida symptoms that you
experience will not always be exactly the same as the next
person with the condition.

The Most Common Yeast Infection
There are a number of Yeast
Infection symptoms to look out for and one of the main
ones is a thick discharge. This often has an uncanny
resemblance to cottage cheese and it tends to have a starchy
smell associated with it. The discharge will vary in color from
white to yellow. It is thought that only around 20% of women
with Candida experience this symptom, but it is still worth
looking out for.
The most common symptom by far however is
itchiness. Most women who suffer from Candida will experience
itchiness around and in the vagina. There may also be a burning
sensation around the area too. No matter how much you scratch
the itch, it just seems to get worse. It is also common for the
skin to become red and swollen and it could become painful to
urinate. There is also the chance that sex will be painful.
Of course, pain while urinating can point to
a number of things. If you do experience a little pain when you
go to the toilet then you need to establish when exactly it is
you feel that pain. Do you feel it when the urine is still
inside the body on its way out? Or do you feel the pain when
the urine passes out of the body? If you experience the latter
then you will more than likely have a yeast infection. However,
if you experience pain when the urine is still inside the body
it will generally point to a urinary tract infection. The
reason why it hurts when the urine passes out onto the skin is
that the acid in the urine reacts to the infected skin.
There are many symptoms that you can
experience with a yeast infection. You may not always
experience the most common yeast infection symptoms and so it
is always worth being aware of the lesser common ones.
The main one to be aware of is that you can
experience pain locally to the infection. So if you experience
pain in your thighs or any area around the vagina it could well
be a symptom of a yeast infection.
To sum up, if you experience itching and
soreness around and in the vagina then it is more than likely
going to be down to a yeast infection. However, there are also
other symptoms that you need to be aware of such as localized
pain and a thick discharge.
