A recurrent vaginal irritation or infection can be a nightmare for some women. Despite various treatment regimes from different health professionals the symptoms may not disappear and instead reoccur. Days persist with discomfort and sleepless nights. Therefore, it is vital to understand this condition in pursuit for an effective solution.
A common reason for recurrent vaginal irritation is a fungal infection of the vagina, known as Vulvovaginal Candidiasis. When it is recurrent in nature, it is known as recurrent vulvovaginal candidiasis (RVVC). In fact, vulvovaginal candidiasis is considered the second most common genital infection in women after bacterial vaginosis. At least three quarter of all women would have experienced at least one episode of this vaginal fungal infection in their lifetime.
What is it?
A fungal or yeast infection is caused mainly by the Candida species, known as Candidiasis. Actually, yeast is present on your skin, gut, respiratory tract and in the vagina. Usually, a trigger causes the yeast to overgrow. However, in majority of women, no trigger can be identified.
