Updated on August 11, 2012

Candida Cure

As you read what you can do to cure yeast infection bear in mind that, the human body is home to many different kinds of bacteria. Some of these bacteria are good while others are bad. Yeast infection is linked to Candida albicans -a fungus often found in the vagina and some other parts of the body. This hub is about Candida albica, one of the many bacteria which is the cause of vaginal yeast infection. This bacteria is known to live on the down low ; but when there is a change in your body's pH balance it retaliates by morphing into a yeast infection. In this hub,I will inform you of the different remedies available for candida otherwise known as yeast infection as well as what you can do to reduce your chances of getting yeast infection

It is a known fact that bacteria likes and breeds in warm damp places; so, to reduce your chances of upsetting this bacteria and avoid getting yeast infection in the process, do these few things.

  • Make provision for air to get to your private part
  • Avoid wearing tight jeans
  • Wear full cotton underwear
  • Wear a nightgown instead of pajama pants
  • Practice proper hygiene- Take a bath
  • Always wipe from front to back after a bowel movement

As with any other infection; no one likes yeast infections because they are very uncomfortable. some of the symptoms of vaginal yeast infection include vaginal itching, burning, painful urination, and a rash in the genital area

While its alright to use over the counter medication to treat your yeast infections; its also always wise to seek the counsel of your primary care doctore especially,if you are new to yeast infection, have diabetes, a fever, or if you are pregnant. Your doctor can diagnose and confirm whether its yeast infection you have. Your doctor will most likely prescrive an anti-fungal - It is the most common type of medication he or she will prescribe. Sometimes its one pill. You can also purchase an over the counter drug like monistat at any pharmacy. Medications come in the form of a cream or pill. Your doctor will advise you how to take the pill or how to apply the cream. As with any medication, you should check back with your doctor.

Given the sensitivity of location of the infection, some women shy away from visiting their doctor even when it is evident that a yeast infection may be present. This is because of a preconceived notion, that they would be labeled as loose and dirty. This is just misleading and untrue and not getting the treatment appropriate for this infection will just lead to suffering and major discomfort.

Therefore, it is recommended that you take the necessary precaution and seek the consult of your medical Doctor should you find yourself with a Yeast infection. You don't want to live your days in pain. And, you should not feel ashamed because every one is prone to bacteria of some sort.
