Can you have a yeast infection without much discharge (instead - red, irritated, burning skin on the vulva, little itchiness)?

Can you have a yeast infection without much discharge (instead - red, irritated, burning skin on the vulva, little itchiness)?

Typical symptoms!: Contrary to what you seem to think (or what you have been told), increased discharge is not one of the main symptoms of yeast. Your own symptoms are EXACTLY what I teach medical students to look for and patients to be aware of. See a doctor to confirm the diagnosis. Or you can try an over the counter yeast medication -- then see the doc if symptoms don't clear up in a few days. Good luck! ...Read more

Odor can go along with bacterial vaginosis, i.e. overgrowth of normal bactera, or trichomonas. You need professional exam and treatment advice; see a doctor. Good luck! ...Read more

I have a yeast infection and I got home from gym, and did yard work and went to the bathroom and I had blood in my discharge. What should I do?

I have a yeast infection and I got home from gym, and did yard work and went to the bathroom and I had blood in my discharge. What should I do?

Re-check with doctor: Yeast infections don't bleed, or only very rarely -- and only if the yeast is especially severe, with open sores. So the blood probably is unrelated to your yeast infection, assuming the yeast diagnosis is correct. You might recheck with your doctor whether s/he is confident about the yeast diagnosis, and also ask if you were tested for STD. Gonorrhea and chlamydia can cause vaginal bleeding. ...Read more
