Candidiasis, also known as a yeast infection, is a common fungal infection that can affect various parts of the body, including the vagina, mouth, and skin. If you’re experiencing any of the symptoms of candidiasis, seeking medical attention and getting the appropriate treatment is important.

Symptoms of Candidiasis

The most common symptoms of candidiasis include:

  • Itching, burning, redness, or soreness of the vagina and vulva
  • Thick, white, clumpy vaginal discharge that resembles cottage cheese
  • Pain during sexual intercourse
  • Pain or discomfort when urinating

In addition to vaginal candidiasis, the infection can also occur in other areas of the body, such as the mouth (oral thrush), skin, and even the bloodstream. Symptoms may vary depending on the location of the infection.

Treatment for Candidiasis

Candidiasis is typically treated with antifungal medications, either in creams, ointments, or oral tablets. Over-the-counter treatments are available for mild cases, but it’s always best to consult a doctor, especially if symptoms are severe or persistent.

For vaginal candidiasis, some common treatment options include:

  • Topical antifungal creams or suppositories, such as miconazole or clotrimazole
  • Oral antifungal medications, such as fluconazole
  • Boric acid suppositories

It’s important to complete the full course of treatment as directed by your doctor to ensure the infection is fully cleared.
