Getting Rid of a Yeast Infection – The First Thing You Need To Do

Tuesday, October 6th, 2009

If you are looking for good solid yeast infection advice then the first thing you have to do is go and visit your doctor.  Why do I say that?  The reason I say that is because there are many different ways to get rid of this problem but if this is your first Candida infection then you need to make sure that you are actually suffering from a yeast infection in the first place.

There are other things that have similar symptoms to a yeast infection and that can easily be mistaken for one.  Some of these things are much more severe and need to be treated different and more urgently.

This is why it is so important that the first thing you do is to get yourself to your local doctor and get yourself checked out properly.  This is one of the ways you can prevent the problem becoming worse.  After the doctor has confirmed that this is what you are actually suffering with then you can make the decisions as to what is the best treatment and what is the best course of action to take from there.

If you really want to get rid of a yeast infection then do yourself a favor and make sure that you take the right steps first and then you will be much more confident and clear going forward.

Is It a Yeast Infection or Bacterial Vaginosis?

Monday, August 3rd, 2009

Yeast infection comes in two forms, acute yeast infection, which is easier to diagnose and chronic yeast infection, which when left undiagnosed and untreated will lead to the development of other serious disorders such as irritable bowel syndrome and other diseases. This is due to the presence of the Candida Albicans, the infective agents that damages healthy cells leading to weakening of the force of good cells that can resist the invasion of these harmful agents.

Similar to bacterial vaginosis, yeast infection also manifests similar symptoms such as itching, burning sensation, discharge, and inflamed vaginal walls. There is however an identifying sign that will suggest that the condition is yeast infection – white coated tongue. This would be the determining factor if the patient were suffering from symptoms of bacterial vaginosis or a yeast infection.

On the other hand, bacterial vaginosis is also caused by the imbalance in the acidic pH level of the vagina. Doctors believe that the condition is more common than yeast infection. Unlike yeast infection, bacterial vaginosis is not considered as a sexually transmitted infection. The condition may also be caused by the bacteria in the anus that has gone to the vagina usually through wrong wiping after a bowel movement. This is often the case in many girls that have been diagnosed to have bacterial vaginosis.

After learning about the factors related to BV versus a yeast infection, it will be easier for you to determine the proper steps to a succesful bacterial vaginosis cure.

Bacterial Vaginosis Versus a Yeast Infection

Monday, August 3rd, 2009

There are many misconceptions going on about the difference of bacterial vaginosis versus a yeast infection. While both of these conditions might involve infection in the vaginal region, there is a great variability when it comes to the real definition of these two conditions.

Often referred to as Candida, yeast infection is not concentrated to the vaginal region alone. Unlike bacterial vaginosis, yeast infection is most of the time caused by diets that are rich in starch, carbohydrates, and sugar. It can also affect men and women alike and even babies. There are instances when babies often suffer diaper rash that is caused by infection of yeast. Yeast infection can be transmitted sexually while bacterial vaginosis, though primarily involved in the sex organ of a woman, is not transmitted through sexual contacts.

Both bacterial vaginosis and yeast infections are the result of imbalance of good and bad bacteria in the body. Development of yeast to thrive in the body is often a result of prolonged treatment with steroids and birth control pills, as well as antibiotics.

If you are unsure whether you have a yeast infection or have developed bacterial vaginosis, it is highly recommended that you visit a doctor to get a proper diagnosis. By doing so, you will ensure that you receive the proper treatment for BV or a yeast infection.

What Can A Doctor Do For You If You Have A Yeast Infection?

Monday, January 12th, 2009

A yeast infection can be one of the more difficult health
problems you will have to deal with. You could certainly be
forgiven for thinking that a yeast infection is an unwelcome
invader of your body. But, if you learn a little bit more about
this problem you may be surprised to learn that yeast is a
substance that has a regular place in your body.

Under normal circumstances, the yeast that is present in your
body is kept under control in a number of ways. And, as with most
health issues, as long as you stay in normal health, your body’s
own natural defense mechanisms can do a perfectly adequate job of
neutralizing any health threats.

Now, that’s all very well if you stay in good health generally,
but the problem is for most of us that we live a pretty stressed
life, right? And it is this stress which is one of the main
reasons that you can get run down and when this happens your
body’s defenses, such as your immune system, starts to struggle
to cope. And then you get left wide open to all of the infections
that are around and you get attacked from within and without.

If you suffer from a yeast infection you can certainly go to a
doctor and he or she can prescribe some medication that will no
doubt clear up your existing yeast infection. But, this
medication will be unlikely to help you out with putting your
body’s defenses back on track so that they will be able to deal
with more yeast attacks. And isn’t that the general problem with
all modern medications? They deal with existing conditions but
they don’t do anything about the underlying causes.

Another possible side effect of using a drug to rid yourself of a
yeast infection is that it is unlikely to get rid of all of the
yeast causing the infection. The yeast that is left behind after
the medicine has done its work could almost be termed super
yeast. It will be really strong yeast – if it weren’t it would’ve
been killed off itself. And that could be a real problem for you
in the future because you could find that your yeast infection
comes back with a vengeance as a result of this.

Prevention is better than cure. You hear it all the time don’t
you? But it’s really true and certainly applies where yeast
infections are concerned. Of course, if you are suffering from a
yeast infection right now that might not be much help to you. The
best advice in this situation is to use a natural way of ridding
yourself of your current yeast infection and then concentrate on
building up your general health by eating healthily and
exercising regularly so that you will be in a better position to
fight off any future yeast infection before it can take hold.
