How are Yeast Infections Diagnosed?

  • Superficial infections are found with physical exam and, if needed, microscopic exam and fungal culture.
  • Invasive or opportunistic infections can sometimes be found with standard lab tests. Repeat urine tests that show red or white blood cells (signs of swelling) will alert your health care provider to an underlying problem. You may need ultrasonography or CT to check for effects on your kidney or bladder.
