Blue Waffles Disease at a Glance

Blue Waffles Disease at a Glance


Since this disease has not been confirmed by any medical authority and there is still no medical term for it, it raises certain concerns about the existence of this disease. However, there are images of it on the Internet (which we don’t recommend you to look for) and therefore we have decided to make a little research and try to find out what exactly is the Blue Waffles disease. Although there is yet to prove the existence of this disease it had a very positive effect on raising the awareness of sexually transmitted diseases in young people.

What is Blue Waffles Disease?

According to Health-Guidances, the condition is a sexually transmitted disease which is characterized by an infection of the vaginal area which in some cases can cause a change in the color to bluish. This is actually where this disease got its name from – the change of the colour is mainly to blue and the word waffle is actually a slang phrase which indicates the vagina. It generally affects women of all ages, especially the ones who change their sex partners frequently..

What Causes The Blue Waffles Disease?

There are many causes which can trigger the disease and they can be either bacteria, viruses or other microorganisms, or the reason can be an irritation of the vaginal area. Stress and poor hygiene are also possible causes.

What are the symptoms?

As the name suggests the main symptom, although it doesn’t appear all the times, is change in the color of the vaginal area. The change can also be caused by the increased vaginal discharge. It has been noted that the vaginal discharge can have a very bad smell. Since some sources claim that the Blue Waffles Disease is actually a neglected case of vaginitis we believe that the symptoms may be similar. According to that, the symptoms are:

  • A change in the colour of the vaginal area
  • The vagina has a very bad smell
  • Itching sensation
  • Painful sensation and burning during urination
  • The vulva is irritated and can be painful and itchy
  • Painful sexual intercourse

As you may notice all the symptoms we have listed are generally the same for all STDs (Sexually Transmitted Diseases) but we strongly recommend you to consult your doctor if:

  • you feel pain in your lower abdomen and the symptoms we have already mentioned
  • you notice irregular bleeding along with the symptoms listed above
  • there was a chance for you to get infected and you feel the above mentioned symptoms

How to Diagnose?

Visit your doctor and do all the necessary lab tests in order to verify that you have been infected and what exactly you are suffering from. There is no need to panic about a possible Blue Waffle infection before you get the results. The lab tests don’t have to worry you as well since they include urine test, blood test, and test of the vaginal discharge.

How to Treat?

When we start with the treatment our main goal is to eliminate the causes. It is important to avoid sexual intercourse during the treatment and it will be good to have your partner tested as well. In this case you will prevent re-infection or spreading the infection in case your partner is infected too. We can say that various causes require different treatments. And they can vary from antibiotics, vaginal tablets or inserts, to avoiding the cause of the irritation.

Before starting with the treatment always consult your doctor and don’t do things on your own. This will save you from the dangers of a wrong treatment. And also if the cause is a virus, antibiotics won’t help you and they will help the bacteria become resistant to antibiotics which can cause problems in the treatment of some other infections.

Soon after starting with the treatment the symptoms will start to disappear. In some cases the symptoms may disappear without treatment, but it is not recommended to just sit and wait because it may lead to some severe health complications if we have made the wrong diagnosis. One important thing you have to have in mind during any treatment is that you shouldn’t stop your treatment the moment you start feeling well. If you stop the treatment before your doctor ordered, the infection may appear again and it will be much harder to treat it again.

How to Prevent?

Prevention is the best protection. The following tips will help you prevent the Blue Waffles Disease and any other sexually transmitted disease.

  • Being in a steady relationship and practicing safe sex is highly advised
  • Take care of your personal hygiene. This means you should wash yourself every day using warm water and mild soap, and wear cotton underwear and change it every day.
  • Avoid using scented soaps and hot water.
  • Frequent douching has to be avoided. If you have to douche; once a moth is enough
  • Make sure your genital area is dry
  • Use anti-yeast creams when you use antibiotics.
  • Use deodorant‐free tampons and toilet paper to avoid irritation
  • In case you notice that your vaginal discharge has changed its volume, colour, or smell, contact your doctor
