HOMOEOPATHIC REMEDIES FOR VAGINAL CANDIDIASIS INFECTION
A vaginal candidiasis infection is a fungal infection that causes irritation, discharge and intense itchiness of the vagina and the vulva — the tissues at the vaginal opening. It's a type of vaginitis, or inflammation of the vagina.
Vaginal candidiasis infection affects up to 3 out of 4 women at some point in their lifetimes. Many women experience at least two episodes.
Although a vaginal yeast infection isn't considered a sexually transmitted infection, you can spread the fungus through mouth to genital contact. Medications can effectively treat vaginal yeast infections. If you have recurrent yeast infections — four or more within a year — you may need a longer treatment course and a maintenance plan.
Causes-The fungus candida causes a vaginal yeast infection. Your vagina naturally contains a balanced mix of yeast, including candida, and bacteria. Lactobacillus bacteria produce acid, which prevents yeast overgrowth. That balance can be disrupted and lead to a yeast infection. Too much yeast in your vagina causes vaginal itching, burning and other classic signs and symptoms of a yeast infection.
Overgrowth of yeast can result from:--Antibiotic use, which decreases lactobacillus bacteria in your vagina and changes the pH of your vagina-Pregnancy-Uncontrolled diabetes--Impaired immune system--Taking oral contraceptives or hormone therapy, which increases estrogen levels
Candida albicans is the most common type of fungus to cause yeast infections. Sometimes, other types of candida fungus are to blame. Common treatments usually cure a Candida albicans infection. Yeast infections caused by other types of candida fungus can be more difficult to treat, and need more aggressive therapies.
A yeast infection might happen after certain sexual activities, especially oral-genital sexual contact. However, a yeast infection isn't considered a sexually transmitted infection. Even women who aren't sexually active can develop yeast infections.
