Doctor

A:   A vaginal infection or vaginitis may be due to numerous causes. A yeast infection is caused by the yeast Candida and treated with an antifungal cream or antibiotic called fluconazole. Bacterial vaginosis is caused by a bacterial called Gardenella and can be treated with an antibiotic called metronidazole. There are other organisms that can cause vaginal infection, such as chlamydia, gonorrhea, herpes, campylobacter, improper hygiene and parasites. Your doctor will likely be able to diagnose the cause of your symptoms with a full speculum exam and by looking at the discharge under a microscope. Treatment will depend on the cause, I wish you well, take care.
