Yeast infection is only one type of infection that manifests itself in vagina and in the area around the opening of the vagina, called the vulva, among women and in the area around the penis among men.

There are three types of vaginal infections or vaginitis in their general medical term:

1. Trichomoniasis: vaginal infection condition triggered by parasitic protozoa.
2. Bacterial vaginosis: vaginal infection condition, which, in most cases, is sexually transmitted and is caused by bacteria.
3. Yeast infection: vaginal infection caused by yeast-like microorganisms called candida albicans. The medical term for yeast infection is candidiasis.

Some symptoms of the localized vaginal yeast infection are:
1. Itching, irritation and burning of the vagina or vulva.
2. White and abnormal discharge from the vagina.
3. Pain during sexual intercourse.
4. Frequent pain during urination.

The symptoms of systemic vaginal yeast infection are:
1. Severe swelling of the vagina characterized by swollen anus and purple color of the vulva.
2. Pain during urination.
3. General fatigue and lethargy.
4. Bleeding and swelling of hemorrhoid veins

The symptoms in men:
1. Burning sensation and irritation during and after sexual intercourse.
2. White lesions and red rash in the penis area.
3. A drop of white discharge from the penis.

Garlic is one of nature’s most powerful anti-yeast foods. The best way to capture its health benefits is by consuming it raw. Find some ways to add some raw garlic into your diet while you are fighting a yeast infection: minced and tossed in salad, for example. Or, try mincing it and stirring it into plain yogurt (along with some chives and dill, perhaps) for a yummy vegetable dip; with both garlic and yogurt, it’s a double whammy!
