Vulvovaginal candidiasis (Vaginal yeast infection) is a common infection in women. It can prove to be incredibly uncomfortable. Jiffy Doctor is here to help! 

Common symptoms include itching, burning, soreness, irritation of the vulvar with the classic white, thick, and clumpy (cottage cheese-like) discharge with no or minimal odor. Symptoms are often worse during the week prior to menses. You may also notice the external genitalia or vagina often appears red and swollen.


Thankfully, treating yeast infections doesn’t have to be scary or overwhelming. In most cases, you can be treated with antifungals (pills, cream, or gel), and the infection should clear up quickly.

If you’re experiencing some of the symptoms listed above and you’d feel more comfortable getting an official diagnosis, request a private consultation with Jiffy Doctor, and a virtual doctor will help you to better understand what you’re dealing with, all within the comfort of your own home. The sooner you seek out treatment for the vaginal yeast infection, the sooner the symptoms will subside. Don’t wait to schedule your virtual consultation.
