Vaginitis refers to inflammation of the vagina. Vaginitis may due to infections or non-infectious causes. Infectious vaginitis may due to bacteria, fungus, or the parasitic organism known as Trichomonas. However, it may also arise due to physical or chemical irritation of the area. Not all infections that cause vaginitis are considered sexually transmitted diseases (STDs), but some STDs cause vaginitis.
