Yeast & smegma is: Jointly or individually can account for the white paste. Clitoris is red from irritation or inflammation. Need to clean and remove smegma from between labia, and use the anti fungal cream between labia and on the clitoris. Good luck. ...Read more

I started treatment for a yeast infection. It has been 2 days and I've noticed that my clitoris is white. It doesn't itch, but is this normal?

Discoloration: A white discoloration of the vulvar skin and itching makes me think that you may have a skin condition and not yeast. You need to get re-evaluated and ask the dr if you could have lichen sclerosis. This condition is treated different than a yeast infection. ...Read more

I just started my period yesterday. I'm itchy but only on the clitoris area. It gets red and inflamed. Is this a yeast infection?

I just started my period yesterday. I'm itchy but only on the clitoris area. It gets red and inflamed. Is this a yeast infection?

Yeast is possible: Candida (yeast) vaginal infections can behave like this, but there is no reliable self test and you'll need to be professionally examined to know. Or if mild and no visible sores or blisters, you could try an over-the-counter yeast product (miconazole, clotrimazole, or any product with active incredient ending in "azole"). For sure see your doctor if this doesn't clear it up within 3-4 days. ...Read more

I had yeast infection after got treatment (7day course) still only itching. Due to use femmine wash? I never use femmine wash before had infection.

I had yeast infection after got treatment (7day course) still only itching. Due to use femmine wash? I never use femmine wash before had infection.

Possibly: The vagina always contains bacteria & other microbes but, if they're in a healthy balance, there's no need for treatment. Feminine washes (douching) can upset that balance & trigger infection. Since there's normally no need to use them & they may have caused a problem for you, I recommend you stop using them. Best wishes. ...Read more
