Candida is an organism that normally exists in the vagina. They are usually under control and do not cause discomfort. However, chronic illness, pregnancy, incorrect use of antibiotics, excessive use of contraceptive pills, diabetes, and habits of wearing tight and poorly ventilating clothing and nylon underwear can cause an overgrowth of candida, leading to vaginitis. In the early stage, you may experience increase in vaginal discharge or vaginal discharge that may turn yellow and cheese-like in texture, itching, vaginal pain, pain during intercourse, etc. If prompt treatment is not sought, painful inflammation and ulceration can occur in the vulva, perineum (space between labia and anus), and in the groin area. 

Reminder: If you experience the following symptoms, please seek immediate medical attention!
