Yeast Infections

How do you know when you have one? Please, no rude answers, I've never had one so I'm not sure.

  • you may also get some swelling, and a burning feeling. if you think you might have one, and never have before, they recommend going to the doc just to be sure, since you don't know what to expect, it may be something a bit more serious and the doc will be able to tell you

  • You itch like crazy....you will know if you have one.....its the kind of itch that makes you want to pull you hair out.....they make over the counter remedies and yogurt helps too!

  • Monistat day or night works the best!! Youll know it if you have one though. You will be horribly itchy, have an odor and constant discharge. Its horrible!!!

  • itchy with discharge, if you think you have one you probably do. but there is this new test thing from vagisil i think and you can test to see what the infection really is..

  • You might just be in the beginning stages of a yeast infection...I'd go to the dr to make sure. A home remedy i've heard good things about, is wrapping a garlic clove inside some cheese cloth and popping it up there...garlic is a natural antibiotic and natural anti-fungal.
