What is Vulvovaginal Candidiasis?
Some yeast or fungus normally lives in a healthy woman's vagina. When there is too much yeast, you can have vaginal burning and/or itching and sometimes a sticky, white vaginal discharge. This is called a vulvovaginal candidiasis (VVC) infection or "yeast infection."
