How is Yeast Infection diagnosed?

Yeast infections can be diagnosed through various methods, including physical examination, laboratory tests, and symptom analysis. A physical examination may involve a visual inspection of the affected area, as well as a sample of the discharge being taken for laboratory analysis. Laboratory tests may include a culture of the discharge, which can be used to identify the type of fungus causing the infection. Symptom analysis may also be used to make a diagnosis, as yeast infections often present with characteristic symptoms such as itching, burning, and redness in the affected area. A healthcare provider may also take a patient's medical history into account when making a diagnosis.
