The symptoms of VVC are non-specific and can be very similar to those of other vaginal infections, i.e. bacterial vaginosis and trichomonas. Each of these etiologies requires different treatment; therefore, it is important to have a reliable diagnostic tool to aid with differential diagnosis.
Signs & Symptoms
· Vaginal discharge (white)
· Rash on outer lips of the vagina
· Vaginal and vulvar erythema (redness) and edema (swelling)
· Genital burning that may increase during urination
