A Woman’s Worst Nightmare: Yeast Infections

Every woman in the world knows and feels that yeast infections are the bane of our existence. This article will help identify one and treat it properly.

Symptoms of a Yeast Infection:

Annoying and severe vaginal itching.

Vaginal discharge that is generally white, thick, and odorless.

Irritated skin around the labia.

Pain if urine touches irritated skin.

Vaginal pain during sexual intercourse.

Ways to treat a yeast infection properly:

Nonprescription vaginal medication, prescription oral or vaginal medication, or nonprescription vaginal boric acid capsules are your treatment options.

For acute vaginal yeast infections, it’s best you use nonprescription vaginal medication. Examples of these are Vagistat, Monistat, and Gyne-Lotrimin.

I would like to touch on women who have yeast infections who are pregnant, have low immune systems, or are sexually active. If you are pregnant or have a low immune system and you have a yeast infection, it’s best that you see a doctor so it can be treated properly. If you are sexually active and the discharge is heavy and has a strong odor, please go see your gynecologist. This could be because you’ve contracted a Sexual Transmitted Disease and it’s best to catch it quickly. There are ways you can tell the difference between yeast infections and STD’s. As I’ve already stated, if you have a strong odor and the discharge is heavy – those are signs. Take note if your yeast infection medication doesn’t work.

Please complete the whole treatment so that you can guarantee your health.

Finally, there are ways to prevent yeast infections. Ways include eating healthy, eating yogurt, wearing cotton underwear, not wearing a wet bathing suit for long, wiping from front to back after using the bathroom, and control your blood sugar. These are a few of the best ways to practice prevention. Take care of your body and it will take care of you.
