The main reason why is that I recently saw a article on yahoo that informed me that a lot of women assume that they have a yeast infection and start self treating themselves and wonder why they are not seeing any relief or why is the yeast infection not getting cured.
Most of us, especially when we are talking about a yeast infection, don’t want to go see a doctor. It’s very understandable. But the problem is yeast infection symptoms are very similar to other severe types of STI’s (sexual transmitted infections).
So by assuming you have a yeast infection and you start to self medicate yourself when in fact you have another type of a more severe STI. So what happens is you let time go by, see no relief and your more serious STI is only getting worse.
So it’s a must to go see your family doctor first so that way he or she can identify what STI you actually have and give yo the proper treatment. And this way you will be feeling a lot better a lot faster, so make sure to go see a doctor first.
Now lets talk about the best ways to treat and prevent a yeast infection, so that way you never have to deal with one again. Sounds to good to be true right? Well in fact there are some great methods to prevent a yeast infection from happening.
One of the best well known methods as of today is yogurt. If you fit some yogurt into your diet everyday that can have a huge impact when it comes to preventing a yeast infection. The reason being is that yogurt posses a friendly type of bacteria that helps prevent yeast from overgrowing. So yogurt can be your secret weapon to help prevent yeast infections.
Another good yeast infection treatment and remedy to help prevent yeast infections is cotton panty’s. Most women’s underwear is to tight, what that does is traps air. We need to let our body’s feel free and breath, let lose some of that trapped air. So wearing cotton panty’s will help let that trapped air out. And that can greatly reduce your chances of getting a yeast infection.
The best yeast infection treatment is very simple, you have to go see a doctor as stated above. So that way he or she can make sure that what you have is indeed a yeast infection and thus he can prescribe the proper treatment approach.
