Possible yeast: There are a lot of possibilities here. Symptoms are somewhat suspicious for a yeast infection. As such, an OTC (over the counter) antifungal medication can be tried. However, it is important to keep in mind that other possibilities exist (neoplasm, precancerous and cancerous changes). Along these lines, follow up with an GYN provider for persistent symptoms is prudent.
