Infection - How To Prevent It
Do you suspect that you may have yeast
infection? If you do then it is possibly best to consult a doctor. But this course of action is not open to
everyone given that health care facilities are often inadequate and many people do not have access to them or
aren’t able to afford a clinic or the emergency room of a hospital. Middle-aged and younger women are most
susceptible to yeast infection and yet many of them aren’t even properly insured.
In most cases yeast infection isn’t fatal but correct treatment is
imperative for curing it. Many different things are often misinterpreted as yeast infection but there are some
well-known symptoms which will let you know whether you are infected or not for sure. These include irritation or a
burning sensation in the vagina and may lead to passage of urine which looks and smells terrible.
The germ responsible for yeast infection is quite active and
multiplies rapidly. This is a primary reason why the infection has been commonly found in many
women over many years. Thus many home cures have been developed to combat this which includes extracts from olive
leaves and seeds of grapefruits, buttermilk, douching as well as yoghurt.
Yoghurt is considered one of the best remedies since it consists of Lactobacillus
acidophilus, a form of bacteria which safeguards the genital organ since it is actually formed there. Therefore
this is often seen as the cheapest and one of the most effective treatments which can be done through the
application of yoghurt on the vagina. If there is a sufficient amount of Lactobacillus in your body then it will stop the further growth of yeast which could be
harmful. All you need to do is take a tampon, apply yoghurt on it and insert it into your vagina to be kept
for 60 minutes. This is not safe though for those who have allergic reactions to Benedryll and we suggest that
you find out exactly what you are allergic to before using anything.
Since there are now more cures for yeast-related infection nowadays
getting rid of it is not as difficult as it was earlier. But make sure you really have yeast infection before you
start using any of these remedies to a great extent. That is because it may lead to disproportionate amounts of
substances inside your vagina and some of the bacteria present may become immune to the solutions. And medicines
you procure from the chemist should contain Imidizole or Nystatin in order to be effective.
A doctor will suggest medicines the relative merits or demerits of
which are not to be discussed in this particular article though. But it is smarter to keep in mind that an
antibiotic will kill other bacteria besides the requisite one and some of those may be necessary or even
advantageous for your system. Some have discovered that using acidophilus as well as antibiotics is more useful for
them then the mere use of antibiotics alone. Acidophilus milk and tablets which can be chewed on are also available
in the market in case you had rather not use a capsule.
