Yeast infections and genital herpes are different types of infections that can affect the vagina.

It is important that people know the difference between the two infections to seek appropriate treatment.

Yeast infections

A vaginal yeast infection develops when there is an overgrowth of a Candida fungus, usually Candida albicans.

This fungus ordinarily lives harmlessly inside the vagina due to bacteria that help keep it under control. However, an imbalance in this bacteria can cause the fungus to grow out of control.

The Office on Women’s Health (OWH) states that vaginal yeast infections can affect females of any age but are more common after puberty and before menopause.

Some individuals are at increased risk of developing a yeast infection, such as those who:

According to the OWH, symptoms of a yeast infection may include:

Genital herpes

Genital herpes is a sexually transmitted infection (STI) that develops when a person contracts the herpes simplex virus from someone who already has the infection. The virus can spread through vaginal, anal, or oral sex.

Learn more about oral sex and STI risk.

Genital herpes can also cause vaginal yeast infections and increases a person’s risk of contracting other STIs, such as HIV.

Genital herpes does not always cause symptoms. However, the condition can be painful or itchy and may cause blisters on the vagina, vulva, penis, or scrotum.

People who develop blisters or sores inside the urethra may experience pain or difficulty urinating.
