It's possible: Yeast infections can cause irritation, redness, swelling, itching, and abnormal vaginal discharge. However, there are other vaginal infections/conditions that have similar symptoms. If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, see your doctor for testing so that you can be treated promptly and correctly.
