Vaginal Yeast Infection Treatment
Patient Comments Read 3 Comments
Although most vaginal yeast infections can be treated with over-the-counter medications, a woman should confirm the diagnosis with her doctor to ensure proper treatment. Other conditions may produce symptoms that are similar to those of a vaginal yeast infection, and some yeast infections may have a more serious disease as an underlying cause.
Women who have vaginal yeast infections that recur should seek professional medical help. Recurrent vulvovaginal candidiasis (VVC) is a condition defined as four or more proven episodes of vaginal yeast infections per year.
