In brief: Vaginitis

there r other causes of vaginitis other than yeast.
Exam needed to check wet mount /cultures. Bacterial vaginosis caused by overgrowth of bacteria and causes symptoms when normal vaginal flora has been disrupted. this produces a fishy odor. This is easily treated with either oral or topical vaginal cream. This is not an STD.
