How To Prevent And Cure Yeast Infection.

Apr 23, 2008
Obviously before we can prevent and cure yeast infection we need to know what it is and how it starts then we can set up affective habits to prevent it from occurring in the first place.

Most women are prinmarily concerned about vaginal yeast infection, the cause of this yeast infection is certainly attributable to Candida Albicans which are nasty organisms that live in the vagina and if allowed to multiply will likely cause the advent of yeast infection in the vagina.

Reasons Why Candida Albicans Multiplies

There are several reasons why Candida Albicans multiply the main reasons are set out here - too much heat, - Transmission through sexual activity, - Changes in sugar levels - Changes in the hormones All of these conditions can assist in the development of vaginal yeast infection.

Other reasons why Candida Albicans will multiply include the use of antibiotics, clothes that are not made from cotton and also certain chemicals.

Some suggest that if one does try and reduce yeast products in one's diet this will prevent yeast infection, there is still no clinching evidence to suggest that doing so reduces the risks. Even use of condoms while having sexual intercourse can result in vaginal yeast infection.

Obviously, another cause of yeast infection is poor personal hygiene, as the presence of moisture is also what the microorganisms need to thrive in. It is also noted that when a woman has her menstrual periods she would be more likely to suffer from yeast infection.

One has also to be aware that the use of the following may cause yeast infection. Bubble baths, vaginal douches, certain harsh soaps, perfumed toilet paper which contain strong irritants, and many laundry detergents used to wash undergarments can cause yeast infection.

It is recommended that after urinating women are careful not to wipe from the anus to the vagina as this can cause bacterial yeast infection from passing from the rectum to the vagina. Another area of concern is washing of the vaginal area more than is necessary with ordinary tap water as this too may be another cause of yeast infection. It must also be noted that yeast infection is not solely confined to the vagina as it can even be found in other oral cavities, the bowels, folds in skin, nipples, ears and even on the penis.

A basic awareness of the causes of yeast infection allows us to take the necessary precautions to prevent and cure the disease should the need arise. Diets rich in anti-oxidants are a very good way to strengthen your body's immune system which will inturn help to eliminate and control the bacterias causing yeast infection.
