Reaction or Infectio: Inflammation is the body's reaction to something irritating it. The inflammation may be a reaction to trauma (injury) or a reaction to an infection. The most common infections are to yeast, bacteria or viruses (yeast most likely). But, they may also be part of a sexually transmitted disease -- so that is the reason for additional testing of the pap smear.
