My pap smear shows severe inflamed severe. Can anyone help me out to understand the seriousness of the problem?

Inflammation on a Pap smear can be found in a patient of any age and may be attributable to a benign infection — such as Candida vaginitis — that need be treated only if the patient is symptomatic. Sexually transmitted infections can also cause an inflammatory reaction on the cervix and should be treated accordingly. Lets discuss your concern in detail so that we can provide you with the best medication plan.
