Hello, cococo, thanks for asking HealthReplies.com.
Pap smear is a test that is done to detect early cervical cancer (cervix) by looking at the characteristics of the cells under a microscope. Inflamed cells and germ cells of malignancy (cancer) can be seen. Pap smear results usually explain whether the cells have normal characteristics or abnormal (abnormal). If the cells are abnormal, the level will be indicated. If abnormal cells are found, the doctor will inform and suggest further tests such as a repeat pap smear test, HPV test, colposcopy (to see cervical tissue more clearly) to biopsy (taking a tissue sample to be seen in a microscope). These tests are recommended based on your age, test results, and risk factors.
Based on the conclusion of your test results, there is mention of inflammation (inflammation) which is thought to be due to infection by Candida spp (a type of fungus), but there is no pap smear result that states the characteristics of cells whether normal cells or cells lead to malignancy. Consult the doctor who treats you so that it is adjusted to the results of the consultation and physical examination that has been done, because diagnosis must combine data from interviews regarding patient complaints, physical examinations, and supporting examinations.
Candida spp yeast infection can cause inflammation of the vagina, causing thick and very itchy vaginal discharge. Treatment of yeast infection is by taking anti-fungal drugs prescribed by doctors and preventing transmission by not having sexual intercourse during treatment or using condoms. Maintain cleanliness of the genitals by always rinsing them after urinating by flowing water from front to back, using clean water (no need to use soap), and drying them properly so that the female area is not damp. Also, wear underwear that absorbs sweat and isn't too tight.
That's all, hopefully it's useful.
