Yeast Infection - 9 Reasons Behind It!

Yeast Infection - 9 Reasons Behind It!

Yeast infections are caused due to the overgrowth of yeast, which is a fungus. This type of infection is also called as candidiasis. Most women in the world are likely to get infected with vaginal or vulvo-vaginal candidiasis at least once in their lifetime. The most common causative organism of this disease is Candida albicans. The other Candida species that might cause these are C. glabrata, C. parapsilosis, C. tropicalis, and C. krusei.
Sometimes, it becomes chronic and may appear 4-5 times in a year.

Other types of yeast infections
Yeast infections can be caused in other parts of the body as well. When yeast infections occur in the mouth, it is called thrush or oropharyngeal candidiasis. Yeast infections are mostly found in moist, warm areas such as armpits, genital area etc. This type is called cutaneous candidiasis. Most candida infections are not very harmful. However, if they reach the blood stream, it can result in fatality. This is called invasive candidiasis and can happen by inserting an infected catheter, etc.

What causes candidiasis?
Candidiasis is caused when the natural flora of the area is thrown off balance. The most common causes of candidiasis are: 

  1. Obesity
  2. Diabetes
  3. Diseases such as HIV which suppress immunity
  4. Pregnancy
  5. Antibiotics, steroids and birth control pills
  6. Vaginal douching
  7. Using perfumed products such as soap and bubble baths
  8. Wearing tight clothing such as synthetic underwear and spandex that do not allow your genitals to breathe

    If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a gynaecologist.

After sex my vagina starts itching and I can fell mild pain, me and my husband had sex constantly for 4-5 days before this pain he used condoms most of times, he is fine in his private parts only I am the only with itching.

Hello. Vaginitis is usually caused by a change in the normal balance of vaginal bacteria, an infection. Symptoms include an unusual vaginal discharge, itching or irritation, painful urination, and pain during intercourse. To stop vaginal itching, you need to maintain proper hygiene as well as follow a healthy lifestyle and diet. Also, try some simple home remedies to get temporary relief from the symptoms. However, for proper diagnosis and treatment, consult me. 1. To get instant relief from vaginal itching, use a cold compress. It will help numb the area and reduce the itching and inflammation. 2. Add 1 tablespoon of salt to a glass of water and use it to wash your vagina whenever you feel the itch. This will give you instant relief. 3. Boil a handful of neem leaves in 2 to 3 cups of filtered water. Strain and allow it to cool. Use this solution to rinse the vaginal area once daily for a few weeks.

Acute Liver Failure in Pregnancy

DGO, MBBS
Gynaecologist, Faridabad
Acute Liver Failure in Pregnancy

Pregnancy is a time when your body undergoes a plethora of changes, both emotionally and physically. In such a situation, an acute liver failure only triggers further complications, threatening to affect both the mother and the fetus. The ambit of liver diseases range from mild complications to those that can be life threatening. Acute liver failure or ALF, as it is commonly known as in medical parlance is a condition which is caused when then there is a sudden impairment of the ability of the blood to clot. In spite of the erratic nature of the ailment and its ability to affect anybody with a complete disregard of the individual's pre-existing history of liver problems, there are certain causes that are said to propel it. Some of them are:

  • Eclampsia with liver infraction: This is an extremely rare condition. Generally, eclampsia refers to the occurrence of convulsions in pregnant women, mostly in those who suffer from high blood pressure. Those women who suffer from eclampsia along with liver infraction are more susceptible to have a liver failure.
  • Hepatic rupture: Much like eclampsia, hepatic rupture is also caused in women who have high blood pressure. This heightens the risk of an impending liver failure in pregnant women.
  • Fatty liver: Sometimes excess of fat develops in the liver deterring its functioning. This is not only detrimental to your health but also poses a great danger in triggering a liver failure.

In spite of these, there have been multiple treatments which have developed to manage and curb it. Some of them are:

  • Remedial measure for coagulation: The inability of blood to clot blood is known as coagulation which is extremely fatal and one of the primary causes that leads to liver failure. Therefore timely and potent intervention of medicine is important to prevent that and in turn diminish the possibility of liver failure.
  • Volume replacement: Volume replacement refers to the condition where fluids are resuscitated or replenished into the body, those that were lost but at the same time are mandatory for the proper functioning of the body.

Occcasional scanty menses is not the reason for any ailment, but rather can be stress induced and hence you should maintain a menstrual calendar for at least 3 months to analyse the pattern of bleeding hence. regards

Smarty m is a newer form of anti allergic tablet or inhaler given for colds. I would rather give a safer phenargan which is being given to pregnant woman/seniors/ kids & there is no fear of side effects as it is time tested product. Ayurvedic science differs from allopathy because it gives medicines according to personality- vat-pit-kapha (hyper, moderate & cool) if a medicine for hyper is meant for a cool person, the hyper person will become more hyper. Regarding consuming both together, I would suggest to you not to take ayurvedic medicine alone at random as like allopathic medicine ayurvedic too have side effcects if given to wrong personality it is not meant to be given.

Dear, loss of appetite, nausea vomiting are common during initial 3 to 4 months of pregnancy. You be understanding and supportive, ask her food choices and give accordingly. Some times choices can be wierd, but after three months things start improving.

Hi. M 20 year old female. I guess m having yeast infection. As my vaginal discharge is very thick. N its secreting in large amount. Wht oral medicine cn b taken.

BHMS, DEMS
Homeopath, Pune
Hello. Most vaginal yeast infections are caused by the organism Candida albicans. Yeast infections are very common and affect up to 75% of women at some point in their lifetime. The main symptom of a vaginal yeast infection is itching, but burning, discharge, andpain with urination or intercourse can also occur. Some women get vaginal infections from yeast overgrowth when they have their periods. This may be because hormonal changes contribute to changes in the vagina's acid balance. 1.Keep Your Skin Clean and Dry The best way to stop yeast from spreading is to keep your skin clean, dry, and free from scrapes or wounds. Make sure to wash the genital area with soap every day and dry off the area well after showering 2.When you go to the bathroom, you can decrease the risk for spreading germs by wiping from front to back (from vagina to your anus, instead of the other way around). 3.Wear Clean Clothes Make sure to wear clean underwear, and ideally make your underwear cotton or another breathable fabric. Allowing air to reach your genitals helps stop moisture and warmth from developing, which worsens yeast growth. 4. Boost Your Immune System with a Nutrient-Rich Diet and Probiotics. 5.make sure to control your blood sugar, since high levels of sugar feed candida yeast growth. Consult me for treatment.
