  1. 1. How To Treat A Yeast Infection
  2. 2. Although those troublesome yeast infections are not limited to the female population it is mostly women who have to deal with this type of health issue, and How To Treat A Yeast Infection is still a boresome problem. Today there is a wider range of treatments that will address yeast infections.
  3. 3. Every woman should become familiar with these different yeast infection treatment options. Understanding each of your options will allow you to decide whether you want to use prescription meds, over the counter products or one of the frequently recommended home remedies.
  4. 4. Most women will contract a yeast infection at some point in their lives. This is a common problem and it can occur in almost any age group. Luckily, yeast infections do not pose serious health problems for most individuals. The symptoms can be annoying and embarrassing but there are a number of treatment options that can address the situation. Treatment is safe, fast and effective. If yeast infections are creating problems for you here are some of the ways that this condition can be cured.
  5. 5. Yeast Is Natural You are not going to become yeast-free. Yeast is a fungus that co-exists inside your body. In most situations your body keeps the growth rate of this fungus in check.
  6. 6. There are specific forms of bacteria that maintain the balance of normally occurring yeast within the human body. Yeast and bacteria have formed a symbiotic relationship. The yeast cells will not cause any troublesome symptoms as long as it is not rapidly multiplying.
  7. 7. Yeast Infections Some people discover that they have a yeast infection that involves their mouth and throat. This condition is known as “thrush”. Yeast can also cause skin rashes if it can become established in the armpits or within the moist folds of the groin, abdomen. These are areas of the body that can provide a dark, damp environment which promotes the unchecked growth of yeast spores.
  8. 8. Vaginal yeast infections are a common female complaint. The vagina has a delicate pH balance and if the pH level changes those yeast cells can multiply at a rapid pace. A vaginal yeast infection is caused by candida albicans and this type of problem can occur in young girls, teens, adults or post-menopausal women. More serious yeast infections occur if the fungus attacks the GI tract or enters the bloodstream. These types of health problems are relatively rare.
  9. 9. What Causes Yeast Problems? Diabetes and other health conditions Hormonal imbalances (menopause or menstruation) Pregnancy Using certain soaps, bubble bath oil and some vaginal hygiene products (tampons, douches)
  10. 10. Use of HRT hormone replacement therapy Restrictive clothing such as pantyhose and tight slacks Underwear made from nylon and other non-breathable fabrics Antibiotics * It has been suggested that poor dietary habits are also linked to yeast infections.*
  11. 11. Signs and Symptoms Associated with Yeast Infections Yeast infections are already established before the individuals are noticing any symptoms. The primary signs of a feminine yeast infection include: intense vaginal itching odorless white (or cream colored) discharge redness or swollen tissue in the vaginal area painful urination burning when urinating
  12. 12. Health Care Professionals If you go to the doctor (or visit a clinic) you will usually be told that the yeast infection treatment of choice will be one of the anti-fungal medications. These are now available without a doctor’s prescription. You can buy an anti-fungal preparation at your nearest drugstore or grocery.
  13. 13. These preparations include powders for external use as well as vaginal creams and suppositories. In some situations you may be given a prescription for an oral anti-fungal medication. Tablets are often prescribed for patients who are known to have recurring yeast infections on a regular basis.
  14. 14. Home Treatment Options Garlic is of the best herbs that you can use for yeast related problems. There are anti-fungal compounds in garlic that help counteract the growth of yeast. Adding raw garlic to your meal plan could help you get rid of a troublesome infection and it will also help you avoid future problems with yeast infections.
  15. 15. Add onions to your diet. Just like garlic, this food has been helping millions of people eliminate unwanted yeast infections. Probiotic pills (lactobacillus) offer an easy, natural way to deal with a yeast infection. These pills replenish your body’s high levels of “good” bacteria. This bacteria will fight the yeast and restore your body’s healthy balance.
  16. 16. Yogurt with active acidophilus cultures is another highly recommended yeast infection treatment. The yogurt can be applied to the vaginal area or added to regular meals. When used as a topical treatment the yogurt soothes inflamed tissue and kills the yeast cells that are responsible for the infection.
  17. 17. Natural dietary supplements such as calendula, thyme, rosemary and pau d’arco have all been used to help treat yeast infections. These herbs are used internally to inhibit the growth of yeast colonies. The supplements can also be used to create topical ointments for the vaginal area.
  18. 18. Homeopathic practitioners often recommend borax preparations to their patients who have been diagnosed with yeast infections. This is a chemical compound which acts as both an anti-fungal and an antiseptic preparation. Borax is intended to be used only on the vaginal area and is not to be ingested.
  19. 19. Suppositories made from tea tree oil and palmarosa oil creams have also proven to be valuable home remedies. These preparations can be used topically to treat (and cure) a yeast infection.
  20. 20. A yeast infection may not be able to be prevented, but you can always find a useful answer to How To Treat A Yeast Infection. Most women become very familiar with the signs and symptoms that accompany a typical yeast infection. If you are unsure you should always check with your health care provider to get an accurate diagnosis.
