Treating Recurrent Yeast Infections

By: Jennifer King

Up to 7% of women who are unfortunate enough to put up with one yeast infection will go on to have to put up with chronic Candida infections. The mistake which is then made is to consistently treat the Candida infection with an anti Candida medication that is only making the Candida infection more severe. Find out why this happens in the information below.
When you're suffering from chronic yeast infections the quickest thing to do is go out and purchase one more anti Candida topical treatment. If you're like a high percentage of women you'll be doing this just for the relief of the continual discomfort that comes with suffering from a vaginal yeast infection.
The complications that accompany this approach to the cure are caused by the truth that you're only treating one single symptom of your yeast infection. There are more than a few symptoms to yeast infections, but an uncomfortable vagina is the most popular, and is the number one symptom that needs to be treated as soon as possible. But as thousands of women find out this is only a band aid effect, and is not treating their yeast infection from the root cause.
If you're suffering from chronic fungal infections then the reason will not be in your vagina, it will either be the yeast in your intestines, or related to a health problem. Once you find out the cause of your Candida infection you can then rid your body of the yeast that is causing your infections.
It's essential that you visit your doctor if you're suffering from recurrent yeast infections to rule out any health problems. Chronic yeast infections can be an indication that you might have a health condition, with the most serious being HIV/AIDS. Chronic yeast infections can also be a sign that you could be suffering from Diabetes.
If you don't have any health problems the most common reason why you're suffering from chronic yeast infections is an intestinal yeast infection. When you treat your vaginal yeast infection the anti fungal remedy you use will just temporarily cure your yeast infection. What happens when you finish your treatment is the yeast that is populating your intestines is allowed to re-infect your vagina.
The mutated fungus works it's way back to your vagina because it is a warm moist place that the Candida loves. This re-infection is made plain sailing by the anti fungal cream wiping out all your friendly bacteria so there's no protection when the yeast re-infects your vagina. While you're treating yourself with the cream the yeast will become resistant to the medication.
An anti fungal protocol needs to be started to cure your intestinal Candida infection, and to successfully cure your chronic Candida infections. Any anti yeast treatment will just make your intestinal infection more severe. Your natural intestinal bacterial balance is already out of sync, and taking more anti yeast drugs just completely shifts this balance in favor of the yeast.
Learning how the Candida mutates in and on your body will be in your favor. You can then go about stopping the Candida from mutating, and then rid yourself of this infection causing fungus for good.
