Vulvitis may also cause local pain in addition to the above symptoms. Pain in the vulvar area is called vulvodynia.

In up to 5% of women, yeast vulvovaginitis may cause recurring problems. A recurrent yeast infection occurs when a woman has four or more infections in one year that are not associated with antibiotic use. Recurrent fungal infections may be associated with an underlying medical condition and may require more aggressive treatment.
