Women with yeast infection could experience burning, itching, pain during sex, and a thick white odorless discharge. If the smell is foul, it could be bacterial vaginosis (BV), while burning and pain during urination could be due to a urinary tract infection. The symptoms can’t be isolated and are tough to figure out.
Refrain from buying over-the-counter medication and go to a doctor, especially if this is the first time you are experiencing the signs. This precaution is in case you don’t have yeast infection, since home remedies could amplify the inflammation and not provide any relief. Your doctor will be able to diagnose the issue and provide a solution accordingly.
Wet suits or sweaty exercise outfits should be discarded immediately as warm and wet environments are excellent thriving grounds for yeast. For women prone to yeast infections, changing out of damp clothes after a swim or workout is a must.
