Health Tip: Treating a Yeast Infection

(HealthDay News) -- Most women will get a vaginal yeast infection at some point, says the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. Its uncomfortable symptoms may include burning and itching.

A yeast infection is typically treated with an antifungal medicine. This drug usually can be purchased over-the-counter, and comes in the form of a cream, tablet, ointment or suppository.

Before buying an antifungal medicine, the agency urges you to see your doctor. It is important before treatment to make sure you have a yeast infection and not a different medical problem.
