This leaflet has been written to help you understand more about vulvo-vaginal candidiasis. It will tell you what it is, what causes it, what can be done, and where you can find out more about it. Vulvo-vaginal candidiasis is a yeast infection of the vagina and vulva inner and outer female genital area.
Study record managers: refer to the Data Element Definitions if submitting registration or results information. The Dynamic Quadripolar Radio-frequency sessions will involve -5 sessions one every daysif necessary External treatment vulvar - will be applied before internal treatment for more comfort : 10 minutes 5 minutes left side, 5 minutes right sideand Internal treatment VVA, Vaginal Laxity, Mild-Stress Urinary Incontinence SUI : 20 minutes. In parallel, patients can also apply pH-cream Cetomacrogol cream one dose of 1g if they judge necessary but they are not allowed to use it during the seven days before radiofrequency session.
Candidiasis is an infection caused by a yeast a type of fungus called Candida. Candida normally lives inside the body in places such as the mouth, throat, gut, and vagina and on skin without causing any problems. Sometimes Candida can multiply and cause an infection if the environment inside the vagina changes in a way that encourages its growth.
The external female genital area is called the vulva. The outer folds of skin are called the labia majora, and the inner folds are called the labia minora. Within the labia minora is the vestibule. The vagina and urethra open into the vestibule.
Vulvovaginal Candidiasis VVC is also known as vaginal thrush. VVC is a yeast infection that is usually caused by Candida albicans. Candida is often found in the vagina without causing any symptoms.
Vulvo-vagino-gingival syndrome was described as a distinctive pattern of erosive plurimucosal lichen planus LPand it is a clinical triad of vulval, vaginal, and gingival LP. It can lead to sequelae such as vaginal and urethral stenosis which can have severe implications on the quality of life. We report a case of a year-old female who developed urethral, vaginal, as well as anal stenosis as a result of long-term exclusive mucosal LP involving vulvo-vaginal and anal mucosa along with oral LP without any other cutaneous involvement.
All the patients were subjected to gynecological examination, measurement of vaginal pH, Pap test, native and KOH test, self-assessment and clinical assessment of the symptoms at baseline and following the therapy. Native test showed normalization of the vaginal flora following the treatment with all four products with no significant difference among the products. The products created unfavorable conditions for pathogenic growth through the lowering of vaginal pH value, promoting the growth of lactobacilli, creating the environment with low water activity and creating a protective layer on the damaged mucosa that creates a physical barrier to the entrance of the pathogens into the cells and enables the recovery of the vaginal mucosa.
Vaginal yeast infectionalso known as candidal vulvovaginitis and vaginal thrushis excessive growth of yeast in the vagina that results in irritation. Vaginal yeast infections are due to excessive growth of Candida. Despite the lack of evidence, wearing cotton underwear and loose fitting clothing is often recommended as a preventative measure.
