Vaginal Infection

A vaginal yeast infection is an infection of the vagina, most commonly due to the fungus Candida albicans. Symptoms of a vaginal infection may include abnormal vaginal discharge, pain during intercourse, pain during urination, redness and swelling of the vulva, and vaginal and labia itching and burning. 

Top OB/GYN and women's health specialists at Tufts Medical Center in Boston treat women with vaginal infections.
