Blue waffle disease is still a mystery. We don’t even know if it is a real disease. It can be just a bad joke. It took just one bad looking photo, for everyone to start panicking about a new sexually transmitted disease that makes one’s genital area look really bad. The term ‘blue waffle’ is not a medical term, as you can see, so we don’t know if we’re talking about a real disease. No medical institution has accepted this condition as real, so we can only tell you what we’ve heard about it.

Blue Waffle Disease Symptoms

According to what we have found, we believe that the blue waffle disease is actually vaginitis. Vaginitis symptoms are vagina inflammation, itching; vaginal discharge that smells bad and looks bad; in some cases, skin in the genital area can change its color. Sometimes vaginal area can turn blue, and that is why they call it “blue waffle”.

All these symptoms are seen in other sexually transmitted diseases. Well, almost all of them… changes in color are not so typical for vaginitis, but they’re possible. Now, vaginitis usually happens because of some infection and weak immune system. When your immunity is weakened, your body can get vulnerable to many infections. Vaginitis is just one of them.

If you experience any of the symptoms, you should visit your doctor and see what is wrong. Perhaps it is nothing serious, so there is no need to panic. It is important that you don’t wait for too long, since this type of infection can result in complications and cause other problems. You should not use any medications on your own. Sometimes, wrong therapy can make things worse, so don’t do anything without your doctor’s knowledge.

As we said, “blue waffle disease” can be just a trick, made for commercial purposes. For example, condom sell will probably increase. However, this can be good for us. If we start using condoms more often, we will be safer. Fear is sometimes useful, because it can make you take better care of yourself. Young people are especially prone to sexually transmitted diseases, since they are often unfamiliar with the risks. Condoms remain the best protection we have against various sexually transmitted diseases. Some of these illnesses can be treated and they leave to serious consequences, but some of them can be lethal, like HIV infection, for example. We cannot tell you if the blue waffle is real, but we can tell you to be careful and use protection.
