How can you tell these apart-vaginal dryness, bladder infection & yeast infection

Unfortunately, only your DR can find out for sure which it is. They all can start out feeling somewhat similar... a sore, itchy feeling. There *may* be a discharge with the yeast infection (cottage cheesy looking) or with the bacterial infection (more often greenish or yellow), but you may not see it. And there may or may not be an odor (for example, trichomoniasis may cause a bad odor and bacterial vaginosis is known for its "fishy" odor) with a bacterial infection, but a yeast infection doesn't usually smell.

The only way to know for sure is for your DR to do a culture. If it turns out negative for everything, then they'd suspect vaginal dryness.

It's important to get a diagnosis because if you try to self medicate for the wrong condition, you may be wasting valuable time and allowing the condition to worsen.

I hope this helps!
