Your Yeast Infection Can Be Managed Very Simply

By Alain Redman

The human body naturally produces yeast. Yeast is a fungus scientifically referred to as Candida. This type of fungus is harmless to the body but it can be dangerous if the system becomes unbalanced. This will allow the fungus to grow very fast until the body can?t control it anymore.

The usual places where you can find yeast are in the moist area of the skin, such as the mouth, vagina, rectum, and the digestive system. Studies show that between 20% and 50% of healthy women are having yeast in the vaginal area.

If you have a large amount of yeast in your body, you would likely to experience itching and burning sensation. Yeast infection in the vaginal tract is known as Candidiasis. You will experience a thick, white discharge that looks like cheese and possibly smells like bread. Yeast infection typically occurs to women during their early teens and stops during their mid 30′s.

The common symptoms of a vaginal yeast infection include vaginal itching and a white, odorless discharge. Unfortunately, some of the symptoms of a vaginal yeast infection can be quite misleading because sometimes discharge is deceptive. If you are suffering from a severe itchiness and a white discharge, it is likely that you?re having an infection.

But in most cases, women also have discharge during an increased estrogen at mid-cycle or at the height of an increased production of cervical mucus. Other possible signs include vaginal soreness, rashes on the vulva around the vagina, abdominal pain, burning during urination, pain during intercourse, and even vaginal bleeding.

A vaginal yeast infection is usually treated with an application of a vaginal antifungal cream, taking tablet, or suppository for days. Oral treatment is the recommended procedure if your yeast infection keeps on coming back.

The reason for this is because oral medication affects the entire body. A vaginal treatment on the other hand can only work on the genital area. A vaginal treatment for yeast infection may not cause side effects. But oral medication may cause headache, nausea, or abdominal pain.

A vaginal boric acid can be used in treating yeast infections. Nonprescription vaginal medications are also available. It is possible to treat your own infection. But you have to be sure that you are not pregnant and be very certain that the symptoms that you?re experiencing are like the ones you experienced before. You would have to consult a physician in case your infection keeps on recurring.

It is a fact that yeast infection often happens to pregnant women. So if you are pregnant, do not use any medications unless your doctor told you so.
