Yeast infections can sometimes cause an unpleasant odor, but it is usually described as a mild or subtle smell. The odor is typically described as “yeasty” or similar to the smell of bread or beer. However, not all yeast infections produce an odor, and the presence or absence of an odor does not necessarily indicate the severity of the infection. Other symptoms of a yeast infection may include itching, burning, and discharge. If you are experiencing symptoms of a yeast infection, it is important to see a healthcare provider for an accurate diagnosis and appropriate treatment.
