A little known fact about vaginal yeast infections is that condoms can actually create them too. The use of condoms which have spermicide on them known as nonoxynol-9, has been proven in studies to be linked to increased yeast infections. Some women however, are simply allergic to latex, so using any type of latex condom can start a yeast infection for them.

Although you can use over the counter products which contain anti-histamines or topical anesthetics for dealing with a vaginal yeast infection they do not actually treat they underlying problem and instead just mask the symptoms. Women who find that they are suffering from either recurring or chronic yeast infections may need to be treated with vaginal creams for extended periods of time, but just recently there are more effective oral medications now becoming available. But any woman suffering from either recurring or chronic vaginal yeast infections should consult their doctor in order to find out what the underlying cause of the problem is. Certainly HIV infected women may find that they suffer from severe yeast infections and in some cases they find that the problem is unresponsive to treatment.

In general, symptoms of yeast infection will include two or more of the following: fatigue, depression, brain fog, insomnia, bloating, gas, intestinal cramps, chronic diarrhea or constipation, sensitivity to chemicals, perfumes or other odors, loss of sex drive, allergies and food sensitivities. And thats just for starters. If you are a woman, you might also experience recurrent yeast infections, bladder infections, and have painful menstruation or PMS. A man might suffer from persistent jock itch, athletes foot, other fungal infections, or prostititis. Symptoms in children can include recurring colds, sore throats, ear infections, and digestive problems like gas, constipation or diarrhea.

Candidiasis affects all people and all ages; even babies are not safe from Candidiasis. At present millions of men and women have a potential yeast infection that is causing directly or indirectly a diverse number of health problems or conditions. If Candida is not completely removed or if the body is not protected from it; the Candida will continuously increase and grow until the time comes when the body will not be able to protect itself from the infections brought about by the Candida fungi or yeast.
