Yeast infections can happen to anyone. It is believed by a large, mis-informed segment of the population that women’s vaginal yeast infections are the only type of yeast infection that a patient can have, however that’s not true. An overgrowth of yeast can happen to anyone, and on any area of the skin, and inside the body not just the vagina. Yeast infections are caused by an overgrowth of yeast on the skin. They arise because of an imbalance between the bacteria and yeast that grows on the skin.
Candida is a type of yeast that commonly causes yeast infections. Infants and very young children can easily get yeast in their mouths, oftentimes referred to as thrush. Yeast infections can also occur in the folds of skin and parts of the body that do not get as much air and light. Yeast flourishes in dark, damp places.
If you have a yeast infection, you should be treated with specific anti-fungal medicines after being diagnosed by an online doctor. You should not buy yeast infection treatment online, as you cannot trust most sources of prescription medicines on the Internet, and you cannot be too sure what you are really getting. Over the counter medicines for yeast infection oftentimes do not properly treat the entire infection, and instead mask the symptoms making patients think that their infection has gone away, only to notice within a few days it is back with a vengeance.
