Vaginal candidiasis: Reasons, Symptoms and Remedy

Jul 11, 2008
Candida bacteria are hosted by the human organism as a natural phenomenon. The complications occur when they replicate in an uncontrolled fashion. This happens when other friendly bacteria are no longer able to repress the multiplication of Candida. This can then bring on vaginal candidiasis. The occurrence of vaginal candidiasis is very frequent. Information points to one third of the female population being affected by this at some point in life. This fungal infection is a source of worry for many women and one of the biggest difficulties lies in the misconceptions concerning this impairment.

Impairment Triggers

Many causes can contribute strongly to setting off vaginal candidiasis. A lack of ventilation accompanied by an increase in body heat and in body moisture all aggravate the Candida microbe multiplication. In this way incorrect clothing including very tight clothing that constricts the body, can restrict the correct evacuation of sweat and generate infection.

Vaginal candidiasis may also be exacerbated by sexual intercourse, pregnancy and some of the oral contraceptives that are available. Similarly, synthetic clothes and incorrect lubricants such as glycerin and petroleum gel also favor yeast infection of the vagina. Psychological pressures also play a part. The typical lifestyle today is more strenuous and hectic and therefore needs to be counterbalanced by healthy eating and sleep patterns. Unhealthy diets are major contributors to vaginal candidiasis. Many of these factors also make this illness chronic.

How to identify the different symptoms

Yeast infection of the vaginal tract can be detected in different fashions. One may be a cheese like discharge from the vagina without odor. Itching, and scratching leading to itching, are also symptoms, as is a tingling or painful sensation during urination. Having sexual intercourse may well become painful as well. Finally, vaginal candidiasis makes it difficult to maintain correct hygiene and unpleasant odors may follow.

Advice on what to do

It is possible to treat vaginal candidiasis in many ways. Different medications are available on the market and maybe prescribed by a Physician, but typically only have short-term effects if any. For effective, long-term treatment, the holistic approach is to be preferred. Not only for the immediate relief of the symptoms, but also in order to eliminate the problem and prevent it from recurring in the future.
