Vaginal candidiasis: the right action to solve the right problem

Jul 8, 2008
Candida microbes are usually hosted by the human body in any case. The problem starts when they grow in an uncontrolled fashion. This happens when other beneficial bacteria can no longer contain the natural multiplication of Candida. This can then result in vaginal candidiasis. Vaginal candidiasis occurs very frequently. Statistics show that one out of every three women will be affected by this at some time in her life. This fungal infection is a big worry for many women and one of the biggest problems is the lack of knowledge about the ailment.

Illness Triggers

Many causal agents can contribute in a major way to bringing on vaginal candidiasis. Poor ventilation together with increased body thermal energy and in body water content all tend to generate Candida microbe replication. For this reason, badly designed clothing, including very tight clothing that squeezes the body, can hamper the correct evacuation of transpiration and cause infection.

Psychological pressures also play their part. Lifestyles today are more strenuous and hectic and therefore need to be counterbalanced by healthy eating and sleep hygiene. Unhealthy diet plans are major culprits in vaginal candidiasis, which may also be exacerbated by sexual intercourse, pregnancy and some of the oral contraceptives that are used. Similarly, incorrect lubricants such as glycerin and petroleum gel, and synthetic clothes also favor yeast infection of the vagina. Many of these elements also make this ailment chronic.

How to recognize the different signs

Yeast infection of the vagina may be noticed in different ways. One of these may be an odorless cottage cheese like discharge from the vagina. Vaginal candidiasis also makes it difficult to maintain correct hygiene and unpleasant odors may follow. Itching and scratching are further symptoms, as is a feeling of tingling or pain when urinating. Sexual intercourse may then be painful as well.

Recommendations on the Action to Take

It is important to take action not only immediate alleviation of the symptoms, but also to halt the fundamental problem and stop it from coming back. Many ways exist for treating vaginal candidiasis. But even if different medicaments are available or may be prescribed by doctors, any improvement is usually only on the basis of short-term relief. For long term results that really work, use a holistic approach.
