Vulvo-vaginal infection caused by a fungus (most often Candida albicans) that is physiologically present in the vagina.
An imbalance in the vaginal flora (due to taking antibiotics for example) or a change in vaginal pH results in local proliferation of the fungus.
The symptoms are intense itching and granular white discharge.
