About Yeast Infections.

Did you know that your skin can get a yeast infection?

There are many types of yeast infections: Oral infections or Thrush, Skin fold infections or Intertrigo, Nail fold infections, Penile infection or Balanitis, Genital infection in women or Vulvovaginal candidiasis.

Candidiasis, the general name for yeast infections, can occur when the body's defenses are low. Other contributing factors include living in a warm climate, pregnancy, contraceptive pills, diabetes, iron deficiency and overuse of antibiotics, Additionally, if you have some skin disease such as lichen planus, psoriasis, etc., you are more likely to develop a yeast infection. Candidiasis is also a problem with those who are on long-term steroids use or those who have HIV infection.

Candidiasis is caused by the yeast candida, a fungus. Candida is a common name of a group of yeasts, the trouble maker is c.albicans. Candida is common yeast which lives along with the normal bacteria (the good bacteria) in the human digestive track. Normally it is not a problem, but attacks occur whenever the body's immune system is weakened.

Are you bothered by itching and burning in sensitive areas? You may have a yeast infection. For more information about yeast infections and how to naturally prevent them, get the e-book, Yeast Infection No More, at Yeast Infection No More.

Yeast infections usually develop in the damp or moist areas of the human body. Their symptoms appear beneath the skin folds, lower parts of the abdomen, finger nails, and vagina and around the dentures. They become more common with age. Yeast infections normally affect the vaginal area and causes irritation and burning. They are chronic infections that recur frequently. You need a tested and proven medicine in order to prevent its attack again.

There are many treatment options available for yeast or Candida infection. Antifungal medicines are used to cure vaginal yeast infections. They are available in the form of creams or ointments. You can directly insert them into the vagina. If your male sex partner does not show any signs of yeast infection then treatment of your sex partner is not necessary. However, if there are symptoms of infection, your spouse or sex partner have to be treated with antifungal ointments or creams. There are many medicines available at medical stores or pharmacies. But you must not use them without consulting a good doctor. It may be harmful for you to use them on your own. This is especially recommended if you have contracted the disease for the first time or if you are pregnant. The symptoms of the infection may reappear if you do not use a tested or result oriented ointment or cream. You have to use creams from two weeks to six months or as recommended by your doctor. If irritation reappears during the cure you have to stop the medicine.

The way to get rid of a yeast infection is to use over-the-counter lotions or creams that are manufactured to kill this fungus and put your vaginal ambience back to normal again. Repetitively used products include fungicides, all of which are available at your local pharmacy.

In case the infection develops into more serious and systematic disease, certain strong fungicides are recommended by doctors. Vaginal or oral yogurt is used for the treatment of yeast infection in women. If you make yogurt a vital part of your everyday diet, it can be helpful for you. Yogurt contains lactobacillus acidophilus that can reduce the recurrence of Candida infection.
