There are at least six other conditions and diseases that can be mistaken for a vaginal yeast infection. These include 15 Your doctor may exclude other types of infections or disorders and give you a diagnosis. If you are already familiar with the symptoms of a vaginal yeast infection, then you can easily treat the disease at home by yourself. Keep in mind that when you are menstruating, you are more likely to get a yeast infection because menstrual blood can increase pH levels in the vagina and alter hormone levels, allowing yeasts to multiply more quickly.
"Good Bacteria" are able to balance "bad bacteria", which means you stay free from infections, digestive disorders and so on. For example, a common strain of bacteria called Lactobacillus acidophilus is normally present in the vagina, which prevents other organisms, including yeast, from taking over. In the body, it is almost as if the yeast organisms can talk to each other and let the whole group know when a source of nutrition is available, so that the yeast gravitates towards that source to feed and multiply rapidly.
Some skin rashes are due to skin irritations caused by tight, wet or dirty diapers. However, an eruption that persists may be due to a proliferation of yeast Candida. Candida develops in moist, warm areas of the body. Babies whose diapers are not clean and dry or who have more frequent bowel movements are more at risk of developing a yeast infection, such as babies who take antibiotics or those whose mothers are breastfeeding.
This can be caused by pregnancy, diabetes, the use of certain medications, lubricants or spermicides, or a weakened immune system. Sometimes the infection can be passed from one person to another during sex. A man with a yeast infection may have a skin rash that is eating on his penis. Because the symptoms in women may be similar to other infections such as bacterial vaginosis bacterial growth in the vagina and sexually transmitted diseases, it is important to consult your doctor.
Even if you think that your vaginal infection is due to yeast overgrowth, it is wise to talk to your doctor first. The discomfort you feel can be caused by something completely different, and the start of an incorrect treatment for a yeast infection can delay your treatment. If you are pregnant, consult a doctor before starting any treatment. And consult your health care provider if your symptoms do not improve after treatment.
