Yeast is a common type of fungus that grows in moist areas. Normally we carry yeast in our bodies but when their concentration increases, we develop an infection.
The common areas underlining this fact include the mouth, underarms, and lower abdomens. This yeast infection could occur in both men and women.
The common cause of yeast infection is Candida albicans. The reason this concentration increase varies from person to person.
It could be a result of usage of some antibiotics and steroids or could occur due to a result of the weak immune system. The symptoms of this infection are itching, redness, and gradually the emergence of the pain.
Now, comes the treatment. Treatment could be done through medicines or through natural ways. There are certain supplements of food that help in the growth of “good” bacteria.
These bacteria help in the inhibition of the growth of Candida albicans. Therefore good bacteria suppress bad bacteria and the body recovers. This procedure is followed in the mechanism of yogurt in our body.
The next kind of treatment includes a hot sitz bath. In this, the water used should be mixed with vinegar. Vinegar helps in relieving the patient from the itching this yeast infection causes.
This yeast needs an acid environment to grow. It disturbs the pH of the body. Vinegar helps in restoring this pH thereby curing the affected part. Cinnamon oil and tea tree oil can also be used as they are found quite helpful in getting relief from the disease.
