Symptoms of yeast infections?

Varied...

Candida_vulvovaginitis
Itching, burning, thick whitish cottage cheese discharge. However, many times, the symptoms of a yeast infection can look like any other number of infections - and if you've never had a yeast infection diagnosed before, it might be better to get it checked out and confirmed by your doctor first.

Dr. Robert Kwok answered:

What Causes Yeast infections?

Candida (overgrowth)

Baby
Candida is the usual cause of yeast infections in a person. Candida is always in or on our bodies, in small amounts that are invisible. Candida lives with us, normally. It causes symptoms if it invades into parts of our bodies where Candida is not supposed to go, or it causes symptoms if it is indeed staying where it should but is overgrowing in large amounts (such as with oral or vaginal thrush).

yeast infection after intercourse?

Colonized

Yeast_infections
It sounds like your partner has been colonized. It is common in uncircumcised men. You should use condoms to help prevent it. Treatment should clear it up if you are not exposed again.

What is a strep yeast infection?

Hmmm?

Streptococcal_infection
I have not heard that term before. If I had to guess it would be due to someone taking antibiotics for a Strep infection. This could then be followed by overgrowth of yeast as certain bacteria are killed off or reduced in #.

Do women get yeast infections ?

Normal flora...

Candida
Most cases of yeast infection are caused by overgrowth of normal yeast (Candida) in the vagina. When an imbalance occurs, such as when the normal acidity of the vagina changes or when hormonal balance changes, yeast can multiply and build up. When this happens, symptoms of an infection may happen. Symptoms include itching and cheesy discharge. Less commonly, yeasts can be spread sexually.
