Premier Health providers answer frequently asked questions about prevention and wellness for women.

Can yeast infection symptoms be a sign of something else?

Sometimes, it can seem like you have a yeast infection, but the symptoms are actually a sign of something else.

What looks like a yeast infection could be a sign of a different kind of infection, Premier Physician Network (PPN) physicians say.

It could be a different infection called vaginitis or something more serious like herpes. Because it can be difficult to tell the difference at first, it’s important to visit your health care provider to find the best treatment option for you.

Talk to your provider for more information about whether yeast infection symptoms can be a sign of something else.
