Yeast infection causes, symptoms and natural treatments
Yeast is a fungus and commonly known as Candida, Monilia or Thrush. Candida albicans specific type of fungus is responsible for Yeast infection/vaginitis. It is in fact a very common condition, amongst women. Yeast is commonly present on normal human skin in areas of moisture such as mouth and vagina. Women who are taking some medicines that suppress the immune system may develop yeast infection more frequently than women with normal immune system. Yeast infections are common during pregnancy. It can also occur due to injury to the inner vagina. As per various reports three out of four women develop yeast infection at some point in their lifetimes. Most common form of vaginal yeast infection is often referred as vaginal candidiasis.
Symptoms of yeast infection:
Yeast infection causes itching or soreness in the vagina. It sometimes may cause burning sensation or pain during intercourse or when you urinate. Some women may have other symptoms like thick, clumpy white discharge that looks like cottage cheese and does not have any odor. Normally these symptoms occur during the week before menstrual period.
Precautions and home remedies for yeast infection:
- Avoid wearing any tight material, especially synthetic fiber based clothes. Wear loose clothing, underpants and undergarments as oxygen kills yeast.
- Reduce or avoid yeast, alcohol and sugar from your diet as all these three will promote the infection further, and make it virtually impossible to completely eliminate the yeast infection.
- Drink 3 glasses of pure Cranberry juice per day as acid content in the cranberries will alter the PH balance of your vagina and cause the yeast to die off.
- Soak garlic clove in the olive oil or in coconut oil and apply it to the infection to destroy the yeast. It may give burning sensation so only use it if you can tolerate it.
Treatments for yeast infection:
First of all if symptoms of this problem are mild then instead of taking any medicine you should wait for some time to see if they clear up on their own. During pregnancy you should not take any medicine without consulting a doctor.
