What to Do with Yeast Infection

Published at : 17-12-2019 View : 18554

  Yeast infection is a common fungal infection of the genitals. Most yeast infections are caused by an organism called Candida albicans. It can causes irritation, inflammation, itching, and vaginal discharge. It commonly affects women, but men can get it too.

Common Symptoms of Yeast Infection

  If you have a yeast infection, you’ll experience extreme itching in and around your vagina; this is the most common symptom. Aside from itching, you might also have:

   Intense burning, especially when you urinate or during sexual intercourse

   Redness, irritation, or soreness of the vagina in women; swelling of the vagina

   Pain and soreness in your vagina

   Vaginal rash

   White, thick odor-free vaginal discharge with a cottage cheese appearance

   Watery vaginal discharge



Causes of Yeast Infection

  Yeast infections occur when new yeast is introduced into the vaginal area, or when there is an increase of yeast already present in the vagina relative to the number of normal bacteria. For example, when the normal bacteria are eradicated by immunosuppressive medicine, the yeast can multiply, invade tissues, and can cause irritation of the lining of the vagina.

  Several factors can cause a yeast infection, including:

   Medicine which decreases the amount of Lactobacillus (“good bacteria”) in the vagina


   Uncontrolled diabetes

   Weak immune system

   Poor eating habits, including a lot of sugary foods

   Hormonal imbalance near your menstrual cycle


   Lack of sleep

  If you are having recurring yeast infections or problems getting rid of a yeast infection with conventional treatment, then different types or versions of Candida might be the cause. A laboratory test can identify what type of Candida you have.

Treatment for Yeast Infection

  A specific kind of yeast called Candida albicans can cause most yeast infections. These infections are easily treatable. Even though the signs and symptoms of a yeast infection may point to the cause, vaginal itching and discharge can be caused by other conditions including bacterial vaginosis and Trichomonas infections. Each yeast infection is different, so our doctor will suggest a treatment that’s best for you. Treatments are generally determined based on the severity of your symptoms.
