How to Know If You Have a Yeast Infection and How to Treat Your Condition Effectively

This condition is not a pleasant one, and if you are researching information into the subject then let me tell you that that is a wise thing to do on your part. There is a lot of information out there but there are also some misconceptions regarding this condition and it is important for you to know the real facts.

An yeast infection brings along with it several nasty symptoms that can make your life a living hell. If you have one of the following symptoms it\’s a safe bet to assume that you are suffering from this condition.

In women, symptoms may include:

* Thick white vaginal discharge that looks like paste or cottage cheese

* Itching of the vagina, or around the vagina

* Redness on the outside of the vagina (vulva)

* A burning sensation when urinating

* Pain during sexual intercourse.

These are some of the most popular symptoms although there are cases when some women have no symptoms at all but still suffer from the condition.

How to know if you have a yeast infection

You could self diagnose by finding out that you have one or several of the symptoms mentioned. The popular way to diagnose is by visiting your health care provider that will ask about your symptoms and examine you. After observing your symptoms and examine you, the diagnosis may be clear. He may also collect samples of cells from places where you have symptoms, such as the mouth, vagina or skin. Your provider may use a microscope to see if there is high amounts of yeast in a sample of cells.

How to treat it effectively

Medications are available as vaginal suppositories, creams and tablets to take by mouth. Some medicines are available without a prescription, such as miconazole (miconazole) and clotrimazole. You should see your doctor before you start using any of these OTC medicines, especially if:

* Never had a yeast infection.

* You have doubts that your symptoms are caused by yeast.

* You are sexually active.

This approach however might not provide a permanent relief from this infection, as many women who use medicine and creams to treat it notice that the condition recurs on a permanent basis.

The reason for this is that drugs and creams only treat the outside of the condition and not the infection that lies in the intestines and causes the condition in the first place.

What you may need to permanently get rid of recurring yeast infections is the use of a natural treatment that takes care of both the inside and outside of the condition thus offering permanent relief from all the nasty symptoms.
