There are some extremely easy to spot and glaring signs that could easily signal that you are suffering from vaginal infections. This is simply because the symptoms of vaginal infections are fairly obvious and can hardly be mistaken for anything else. You should be aware of the fact that there are two kinds of infections that may be present and rampant in the genital area. The first is a urinary tract infection (UTI). This is an internal infection that can have symptoms internally as well as externally. It can affect your entire urinary tract, and there is also a very real danger of this spreading into your kidneys as well if left to itself or neglected for too long a time. It is essential that you not take a UTI lightly. The second type is a vaginal infection, which is very different from a urinary tract infection. This is mostly an external infection. In extremely rare cases only does it spread to the inside part of your body, It is also good to know that confusing the two types of infections is a very common incidence as well. This is mainly because both have extremely similar symptoms.

The most common sign of a vaginal or a urinary tract infection is a dull burning sensation that seems to be all permeating in the abdominal region. You will feel the burning and pain almost all the time, which will tend to make you feel extremely irritable as well. Another common symptom is the constant and urgent need to urinate. However, when you go to the bathroom, there will be practically no urine coming out. Whatever little urine you could actually expel will also be accompanied with an intense burning sensation. A sign of the fact that this is an infection is that your eyes will water even as you are struggling to urinate. Also, this burning sensation will stay with you once you are done urinating as well. You may also experience an itching sensation in your genitals all the time. The urge to scratch is never too far from the surface of your conscious mind when afflicted with a certain type of vaginal infection. And it is always better not to scratch, because the more you scratch, the more you will feel the urge to continue scratching. This will not help you in any way. If anything, it will make matters worse by adding inflammation to your woes.
