Many women use antifungal medicines when they don't really have a yeast infection and that can boost their risk of getting a hard-to-treat infection in the future. Therefore, it is crucial to know the symptoms of yeast infections.***What are the symptoms of a vaginal yeast infection?The most common symptom of a yeast infection is intense itchiness in and around the vagina. Other symptoms are burnig, redness, swelling of the vagina and the surrounding area. You may experience pain when urinating and pain or discomfort during sex. You may notice a thick, white vaginal discharge that looks like cottage cheese that does not have a bad smell in the beginning of infection. These symptoms vary between mild to severe and not everyone develops all of them.***What are the causes of vaginal yeast infections?Many things can change the acidity of the vagina and boost your chances of a yeast infection. Common environmental disruptions that favor yeast include increased pH, increased heat and moisture, allergic reactions, poor diet and or increased sugar intake, hormonal fluxes during your period, taking birth control pills, and reductions in the populations of bacteria that are normally present. Stress, lack of sleep, sickness, diseases such as poorly-controlled diabetes and HIV infection are all major causes.***What are the most common "cures" for yeast infections?The usual treatmants are antifungal medicines in the form of creams, tablets, ointments or suppositories that are inserted into the vagina. These products can be bought over-the-counter at the drug store or grocery store. Doctors may also prescribe a single dose of oral fluconazole. But it is becoming more common that infections do not respond to these drugs.Regrettably, the truth is that prescription or over-the-counter drugs don't get to the root of the problem. They just mask over your symptoms. They may help you to cope with your immediate symptoms, but they don't correct the long term cause of yeast infections.Prescription drugs can have bothersome side effects like vaginal burning, stomach upset, loss of appetite, altered taste, diarrhea, nausea, headache or dizziness. There are women who experience allergic reactions to these drugs resulting in rashes, itching, swelling, dizziness, trouble breathing... and the list goes on.Of course, not all women will experience these side effects and for some these drugs work quite well, but any time that someone introduces drugs into their body the risks are increased.In fact, one of the drugs commonly prescribed for yeast infections - Butoconazole - was mentioned in a recent ABC News report. Of all drugs on the market, Butoconazole is among the top ten drugs reported to the FDA for causing adverse reactions.Unfortunately, vaginal yeast infections are very common. About 75% of women have a yeast infection during their lives and almost half of women have two or more yeast infections.***Therefore, it is very important to pay attention to your body and your diet to prevent yeast infections from ever occurring.
