Arlington Yeast Infection Treatment

What is a Yeast Infection?

A yeast infection is a fungal infection that most women will experience at least once in their lifetime. Yeast infections are caused by Candida, a type of fungus found in the body in small amounts. Overgrowth can result in uncomfortable infections which appear as a growth of thick white patches. Yeast infections can be found on the skin, throat, mouth, genitals, and even in your blood. Most often, however, they occur in the vaginal area. This is because the vagina already contains a natural balance of bacteria and yeast that help kill germs. An interruption to this balance makes it easy for a yeast infection to form.

What causes yeast infections?

  • Hormonal changes
  • Certain antibiotics

How Do I Know if I Have a Yeast Infection?

You will probably notice when you have a yeast infection as the symptoms are hard to ignore. The symptoms can vary from person to person depending on the type of infection, and they may include:

  • Itching and discomfort in the vaginal area
  • Swelling of the vulva
  • A burning sensation when urinating or having sex
  • A thick white discharge coming from the vagina
  • A rash in the vaginal area

Some yeast infections are more serious than others. If you experience excessive swelling or redness, or have more than four yeast infections in one year, then it is important to discuss this with your medical professional.

Treating a Yeast Infection

A yeast infection can be treated with antifungal medication. There are many antifungal medications you can obtain without a prescription, but getting a recommendation from your doctor can help you narrow down your options. There is also a single-dose oral medication that your doctor can prescribe. Keep in mind that pregnancy will change your treatment options, so be sure to consult with a doctor.
