symptoms in women may be mild or very uncomfortable. Possible symptoms include:
- Itching, burning, and irritation of the vagina

If the abnormal discharge occurs, it is usually described as looking like cottage cheese. But the discharge may vary in amount and appearance. It does not have a bad odor.

Symptoms of Candida in Males
Most male partners of women with yeast infections
do not have any Candida
symptoms. Some men, however, have reported symptoms after sexual intercourse if condoms were not used. These Candida
symptoms can include temporary rashes and a burning sensation on the penis.
