Does vaginal swelling accompany yeast infections? Yeast infections, like any other infections, can lead to various symptoms in the vaginal area. The presence of an infection can lead to inflammation, redness, irritation, heat, and immune malfunction. Often, the affected area can be scratched due to the discomfort it brings. This scratching can trigger the release of histamine and other chemicals, which might further amplify the immune response. As a result, swelling, pain, redness, and irritation can indeed be associated with a yeast infection. If you’re uncertain, it’s essential to get the area swabbed and tested to determine if a yeast culture can be obtained from the cells. You might be dealing with a Candida Albicans infection. For detailed information on how to address this kind of infection, refer to Chapter 5 in our book, Candida Crusher.
