How to Prevent Yeast Infections

Prevention is always better than cure - a cliche but true. If you can prevent yeast infection, then definitely there's no need for you to spend so much time, effort, and money treating one.

There are many things that you need to do in order to keep your body away from Candida infection. You might as well follow these tips to stay away from recurring yeast infection in case you already have one.

•  Avoid wearing panties made of nylon, Lycra, or other synthetic cloths. Loose white cotton panties are recommended. Never wear pantyhose without wearing cotton panties underneath. As much as possible, avoid wearing pantyhose at all.

•  Take off wet swimsuit or any wet clothing as soon as possible. Dry thoroughly after bathing or swimming. The yeast fungus loves to thrive in moist areas.

•  After urination or bowel movement, always wipe from front to back. Do this to avoid the transfer of malign microorganisms from the rectum to the vaginal area.

•  Use white and unscented toilet paper. The dye and perfume in colored and scented special toilet paper can irritate your genital area.

•  Avoid cleaning your vagina with perfumed soaps, bubble baths, hygiene sprays, and commercial douches. The chemical ingredients in these products destroy the protective lining of the vagina, thus making it vulnerable to infection.

•  Some women sprinkle talcum powder on their panties, thinking that powder can absorb moisture in the crotch. You should not do this though, as talcum powder contains starch that can foster growth of the Candida fungus.

•  To prevent vaginal irritation and injury during sexual activity, use water-based, non-perfumed lubricant. Never use petroleum-based lubricants, as they might irritate your vaginal walls.

•  Use antibiotics only to fight severe bacterial infections. Do not take antibiotics in excess of the recommended dosage and timeframe of use.

•  Take Vitamin C supplements. Vitamin C optimizes your immune system, thus protecting you from infection. Fresh fruit and juices are also rich in vitamin C.

•  Yeast thrives on sugar, so you need to watch your sugar intake. You don't need to stay away from sugar all together; you just need to take moderate amounts. Avoid refined white sugar, as well as all other products that contain refined sugar. You may use brown sugar or honey instead of white sugar.
