Vaginitis is a medical term that describes an infection or irritation of the vagina by yeast, bacteria, viruses, other organisms, or chemical irritants. It may cause itching and burning in or around the vagina and an abnormal discharge, but some women have no symptoms at all. Treatment of the condition requires an accurate diagnosis, since different types of vaginitis need different treatments. Once the cause is identified, the proper medication can be prescribed.
