grow out of control - and this is a yeast infection (also known
as candidiasis). Some of these factors include being run down,
following a course of antibiotics, weakened immune system,
Yeast infections can affect many parts of the body – the
vagina, the penis, the groin, the mouth and throat, the diaper
area of babies, the gut and the skin.
All of these places are warm and moist, giving the Candida
yeast the ideal environment to multiply and grow. So one of the
first steps in how to prevent yeast infection is to avoid
giving the Candida a place to grow.
- Dry yourself thoroughly after a bath or shower – Pay
particular attention to any creases or folds in the skin
where moisture can get trapped. Make sure that you dry
every part of the body after showering or bathing – bits
that people often miss include between the toes, under the
arms, the genitals and in skin folds.
- Wear natural fibers - Natural fibers, like cotton will
reduce sweating. Wear loose fitting, cotton underwear.
Avoid synthetic fabrics, like Lycra or nylon, that make you
sweat. Men should wear boxer shorts, rather than tight
- Take off damp swimsuits and clothes as soon as
possible. You do not want to give the yeast any place to

– Avoid perfumed soaps, shower gel and bubble bath. These
products can alter the natural state of the vagina and make
it more hospitable to yeast growth.
- Sleep without underwear or pajama bottoms to let air
circulate around the genitals and anus. You want these
areas to be as dry as possible.
- Keep the anus and vagina dry – Wipe properly (front to
back) after using the toilet and dry thoroughly after
- Eat one natural or “live” yogurt a day – Research
suggests that eating 8 ounces of yogurt containing
lactobacillus acidophilus can significantly reduce the risk
of yeast infections.
- Avoid douching. Douching can alter the pH of the vagina
and make it an attractive place for yeast to multiply.
- Follow an anti-candida diet – Try to avoid yeast
products and reduce your intake of sugars and mold
- Try to lose weight if you are obese.
- Treat both partners – In the case of a yeast infection
that affects the genitals, both partners should be treated
to prevent reinfection.
