Vaginitis is a general term for an inflammation or infection of the vagina. Vaginitis can be caused by different microorganisms, including, Candida albicans (commonly know as yeast infection).
Excessive and improper douching, the use of products such as artificially scented bath oils or bubble baths, birth control devices (especially the diaphragm), and/or pills, spermicides, tampons, vaginal deodorant sprays, and poor hygiene are also contributing causes.
Other factors can include: the use of certain drugs (especially antibiotics), the existence of parasites, diabetes, hormonal imbalances, pregnancy, a vitamin B deficiency and poor nutrition---diets high in alcohol, dairy products, refined carbohydrates, sugar, and yeast products---which result in an overgrowth of Candidis albicans.
