Causes For Recurring Yeast Infections

The causes for recurring yeast infections are high in numbers, but there are some more common causes that are talked about for you below. Until you deal with the cause of your chronic yeast infections you will never eliminate the mutated Candida fungus from your body.

OTC yeast infection creams and suppositories

Because the easy availability of OTC yeast creams recurrent yeast infections have gotten more popular. These creams should only be used under the guidance of a medical professional. If they are used incorrectly they become one of the main causes for recurring yeast infections that become resistant yeast infections. No one should be suffering from resistant yeast infections because the human body is quite capable of preventing a yeast infection on it's own without the need for any anti fungal drugs.

The problem with anti fungal creams is they can easily get used incorrectly. Most commonly yeast infection sufferers stop their treatment before the infection has been treated. For example, Monistat 7 must be used every day for the full 7 days. When this treatment start, the symptoms will usually disappear after 2 or 3 days, and this is the point that most women think that their infection has been cured. This is not the case.

Although the symptoms have disappeared the infection is still their, and when it comes back, it will be stronger and more resistant to the cream because of the exposure it has had. And also for the fact that it is still alive, and it will mutate as a natural defense against the cream.

Anti fungal creams only treat the symptoms and fail to treat the causes for recurring yeast infections. The more you use these cures the more likely you are to suffer from Candida infections in the first place.

Underlying health condition or illness

An underlying health condition ort illness can be one of the causes for recurring yeast infections. The most common is diabetes, and for this reason you must go to see your doctor if you're suffering from chronic infections. Your doctor will run other health checks as well to make sure there isn't anything obvious that is causing your infections.


Another one of the major causes for recurring yeast infections are antibiotics. Antibiotics use destroys the body's natural; defense against infections, but a yeast infection is the most common one they cause. This is because the Candida yeast is already a resident in all of us, but it is kept under control by our beneficial bacteria.

Antibiotics kill beneficial bacteria so the Candida can grow in numbers, and then it mutates into an aggressive fungus that starts destroying your health.
