Thrush is caused by yeast called Candida. Tiny amounts of Candida live on the skin and around the vagina. The immune system and harmless bacteria that normally live on the skin and in the vagina usually stop Candida from thriving. If conditions are good Candida amasses and can attack the vagina causing symptoms.Because Candida settles in warm, moist, air free spots, answers the question why the vagina is the most likely place for this infection.

Itchiness, redness, or pain outside of the vagina (the vulva) tells us thrush maybe the causeBacterial vaginosisBacterial vaginosis (BV for short) is a common infection which affects women. It is a condition of the vagina caused by an overgrowth of various bacteria (germs). Germs do no imply that you are dirty so no need to worry. Bacterial vaginosis is not just a simple infection caused by one type of bacterium. The primary symptom of BV is a vaginal discharge. Most women get stressed over the fishy smell experience, well BV discharge often white-grey colour is known as the cause for the fishy smell. Unlike thrush BV discharge does not as a rule cause symptoms of soreness and irritation around the vagina/vulva. In BV, an 'overgrowth' of various bacteria erupts in the vagina for reasons unknown as we speak. The vagina is already infected with different types of bacteria (harmless). Although harmless they create a barrier against harmful germs such as Candida. In BV, there is a change in the balance of the normal bacteria in the vagina, and particular bacteria grow and flourish much more than normal. Medical experts explain these changes as "a change in the bacterial flora of the vagina from mainly lactobacillus species to high concentrations of anaerobic bacteria." A vaginal infection should not have you believing to bathe the vagina more than necessary. Compulsive cleansing is not recommended because it can upset the normal balance of bacteria in the vagina, which may make Bacterial vaginosis more likely to develop.About vaginal dischargeThe crucial function of the vagina is to provide a pathway from the exterior of the vagina to the uterus and the internal reproductive system.
