Vaginitis is an inflammation of the vagina that includes three infections: candidiasis, trichomoniasis, and bacterial vaginosis. Generally, it occurs with a hormonal imbalance and an infection with a microorganism. Vaginitis is associated with changes in normal flora, alkaline pH, insertion of foreign bodies such as tampons and condoms, chemical irritations from douches and sprays, and medications such as broad-spectrum antibiotics.
