Yeast InfectionPage address: http://www.mnsu.edu/shs/yeastinfections.html
Symptoms of a yeast infection include:
- thick, white vaginal discharge
- intense itching
- inflamed external genitalia
Yeast infections are usually treated with vaginal creams or suppositories. The medication prescribed for you should be used according to the specific directions given. Even if your symptoms disappear it is important that you complete the prescribed treatment. You should also complete the treatment even if you begin to menstruate, but do not use tampons as they will absorb the medication.
