A 29-year-old female asked:
What are the major differences in avaginal yeast infections and trichomoniases ?

Trichomonas: Yeast infections usually cause itching, a white clumpy discharge and sometime irritation of the outside of the vagina. Trichomonas usually feels more irritated inside, and the discharge is less clumpy. Trich is a sexually transmitted infection, and requires antibiotic treatment, whereas yeast infections are not sexually transmitted and are treated differently.

Yeast infection: Fungi can be yeasts or molds. Some fungi have both yeast and mold phases of growth, and this will depend often upon whether they are in the human body or in nature or in culture in the laboratory.
