    Yeast infections usually occur in warm, moist parts of the body, such as the mouth and moist areas of skin. When they cause an infection in the vagina, it is known as vulvovaginal candidiasis.

    Candida can overgrow for many reasons. Stress, pregnancy, and illnesses that affect the immune system may allow yeast to multiply, as can certain medicines. These include some birth control pills and steroids. Or if you’re taking antibiotics, such as for strep throat, the antibiotics can kill “good” bacteria that also live in the body and normally keep the growth of candida in the vagina in check. Yeast also can flourish if a girl’s blood sugar is high. Girls who have diabetes that isn’t controlled are at a higher risk for yeast infections.

    Many girls find that yeast infections tend to show up right before they get their periods because of the hormonal changes that come with the menstrual cycle. Clothing (especially underwear) that is too tight or made of materials like nylon that trap heat and moisture might lead to yeast infections because yeast can thrive in this type of environment. And douching and using scented sanitary products can upset the healthy balance of bacteria in the vagina and make yeast infections more likely.

    Yeast infections can happen to any girl, and they’re not related to having sex — although they occasionally can be spread from one sexual partner to the other. This is quite rare, though, and the partner of someone who has a yeast infection does not automatically have to be treated. Yeast infections that are spread through sex are not considered a sexually transmitted disease (STD).

    Only a doctor can tell for sure if you have a yeast infection by taking a swab and run some tests. Most of us can sometimes tell by the feel, look, and smell that you have a yeast infection. If your symptoms don’t match this list, or you are confused or uncertain, go see your doctor if at all possible.

    It feels like an intense itching, burning sensation, localized in your vagina and vulva. This itching is not always present, but can get really bad, so bad you can hardly walk, let alone sit still or concentrate on anything.

    It looks like clumpy white stuff. Most medical descriptions compare the discharge to ricotta cheese, but it can range from thick and not clumpy to faintly yellow to thin and clear.

    It smells like bread or beer. In fact, it smells pretty much exactly like yeast.

    There are other types of infections that can sometimes infect your vagina and vulva and it’s helpful to know the symptoms of all of them so you can be really sure before you go treat yourself for a yeast infection you might not have.

    A bacterial infection of the vagina can feel a lot like a yeast infection if the vulval area is itchy or painful. Unlike a yeast infection, the discharge can be dark yellow, green, or brown and it won’t smell like bread, it can smell like fish or something rotting. If you think you might have a bacterial infection, or if you’re not sure, get I would recommend going to see your doctor as this has to be treated with prescription antibiotics.

    Urinary tract infections (UTI’s) are due to bacteria infecting the urethra rather than the vagina. UTI’s can be fairly easily distinguished from vaginal infections by a host of symptoms, including pain or burning when urinating, blood or mucus in urine, needing to urinate often, pain or pressure in back or lower abdomen and a fever or chills. If you think you might have a UTI, don’t delay, go see your doctor, because the infection can travel up past the bladder, causing kidney damage.

    Another type of infection called trichomoniasis is caused by a parasite that can infect both the vagina and the urinary tract, and is primarily sexually transmitted. If you have a trichomoniasis infection, your vagina can be itchy or painful, it can hurt to urinate, intercourse can be painful, and occasionally you can experience pain in your lower abdomen. Again, you have to see a doctor to get antibiotics to treat this.

    I would recommend you see your doctor just to rule out any other infections and to get a proper diagnosis and proper treatment.

    Good luck :)

    Hi here some remedies that have worked for me, as a woman. Most, if not all, of these can be adapted for a man, as well.

    YEAST INFECTION home remedies:
    - Plain yogurt
    you can dip a tampon in plain yogurt and insert it into your vagina or simply rub some on the outside. I have found, however, that leaving it on for a prolonged period tends to have the opposite effect. It seems that once it has done its job, it is best to wipe it off or you will feel itchier due to the moisture.

    - Water
    In my opinion, this is one of the world’s most powerful, secret remedies for any illness! I strongly believe that if we all drank the amount of water our bodies need, we would see a great reduction in all types of sicknesses.

    Most doctors say that we should drink at least eight 8-oz. glasses of water daily, but many people need even more than that.

    Thanks to for t giving me knowledge. Hope I was able to help on my little way.
