Yeast infection and foods to avoid

Common Questions and Answers about Yeast infection and foods to avoid


Avatar n tn I read and have used Acidophilus tablets which help kill yeast infections. I know yeast infections thrive on sugar, so i would try and avoid sugary foods. Also "live" natural yoghurt helps too, doesn't sound too good i know, but thats what they say. I would definitely go into your local health food store and look or ask for something to help the infection.
Avatar n tn I do recall eco-balance which I'm gonna try asap, I'm still trying to avoid sugary foods as best I can but its tough. Is it normal for men to have this issue cos most places I read about it online are directed towards women. I lasted about 1month 2weeks eating raw garlic everyday, as little sugar as possible etc...
Avatar n tn There are also anti-yeast natural products, but there are so many and so many combinations, and it's likely to be difficult to do while the antibiotics are still killing off your beneficial bacteria, but it's something to look into. The best way to prevent this is to avoid antibiotics unless absolutely positively necessary.
Avatar m tn Not this time, I have had a yeast infection now for 8 months! I first found out when I went to planned parenthood and they gave me diflucan. Diflucan has never worked for me, so the next visit they gave me Gynazole 1, and a prescription for another Gynazole 1 if the yeast persisted. It did so i applied it then I applied various otc suppositories and I finally got rid of the yeast but developed BV.

Avatar n tn the over the counter yeast infection medications only treat one kind of yeast infection, however, if you go to your dr. they can do a pap smear and if it is a yeast infection they can prescribe a similar medication that treats for 3 different strands of yeast infections. good luck!
Avatar m tn Generally, a yeast infection will persist if your diet and habits allow it to persist. Examine your life and decided what might have caused your infection in the first place (antibiotics, birth control pills if you are a woman, high carb diet, non-cotton underwear, etc.). Once your infection clears up, keep up with the probiotics for a while... This will ensure that your infection doesn't resurface.
Avatar n tn Now he has one too and my symptoms are back. i went to the doctor and it is a yeast infection and she recommended the 7 day treatment. i wanted to ask, and i didn't ask the doctor, too embarrassed i guess: Can you get an oral yeast infection from oral sex?
730826 tn?1317946934 I had a yeast infection in the beginning of september and my woohoo is kind of sore like it was then. What are some things that cause yeast infections and what can I do to keep them away? Also, Im ttc and am over a week late (so possibly pregnant) will it harm the baby if Im pregnant and slow down the conception process? (obviously if I know I have a yeast infection I wont be having sex but are there after effects of it and conception?
Avatar n tn it's in your digestive system and for females, our reproductive organs are directly linked to our digestive system(which is why you're getting chronic yeast infections). basically, all processed foods have yeast(to fill you up), fast food has yeast, plus the normal yeast products like bread...check the labels and you'll see. the previous post that mentioned acidophilus was correct, but don't try garlic pills, just eat more garlic.
Avatar n tn I have had some reactions to certain latex condoms and the lubricant which in turn caused me to have both a UTI and yeast infection on top of it...happens I guess..not unheard of I should say to quote my doctor. I have finally found a condom that not only feels good but doesnt give me a severe reaction..its made by TROJAN called Her Pleasure..yes it is latex as well and it has a spermicidal lubricant.
Avatar f tn I know it's a yeast infection and I will be talking to my doctors on Monday. I'm just suffering today. Ugh. Just hope it gets under control. Also I've been on antibiotics for uti that I take every night since I been pregnant and I'm almost 20 weeks so I know that hasn't been helping with the yeast.

Avatar n tn She explained that this is probably what was causing the reoccurant yeast infection and my discomfort. She suggest diet changes to help even out my pH and then told me that every person was different and it could take a while to get my body back in check. She gave me Gynozol (2 doses, one the first day and one the 5th) which did help.
Avatar n tn Recently I got allergy testing done and found out I am allergic to yeast (candida albicans) so the doctor gave me a bunch of guidelines for avoiding foods and drinks with yeast. My next step is to try to cut out sugar, which makes yeast grow. Also I am trying to reduce my alcohol intake... Wine and beer have yeast! And there's sugar in other drinks/mixers! And also I am looking into natural yeast fighting supplements like Caprylic Acid and Pau D'Arco. Look it up!
Avatar n tn From reading and research, i'm prone to yeast infection, and i believe it could be on my scalp, but have been to different DR's, and even a dermatologist, and none will ev en listen to me when i mention yeast overgrowth on my scalp. It's frustrating! All they want to do is keep prescribing antibiotics and steroids. Even the local lab (GAmma labs) here in my town won't perform lab tests without a DR's order.
Avatar f tn I'm 9 weeks and been diagnosed with a yeast infection, the doctor recommended monistat but I rather take a more natural approach. Any suggestions?
Avatar f tn Avoid stressfull job or rerelationship for a long period, avoid supplements, processed foods. Avoid Mammogram procedure because it is very painful and absolete, and money making procedure. Go for MRI. Eat lots of fresh green foods raw or partly cooked. Lots of sleep, so your body can heal and regenerate and increase White blood cells count to fight viruses, bacteria. Prayers to the Father Almighty, God the son Jesus and the Holy Spirit is helping me the Chemotherapy time.
Avatar f tn Something in your diet may be triggering it or making it worse. Google it there are alot of foods to avoid and some that will help. Yogurt or foods with active cultures can help also avoid sugars they can trigger it. Goodluck its aweful dr have always told me im jus more prone to them. Also there is an azo pill that can help balance your ph level also feminine wash nothing scented with ph balance can help.
Avatar n tn Hi, Pain in the penis, scrotum and groin can be due to prostate infection. It is rare for the infection in the prostate to be due to a fungal infection. Prostatitis is caused by an inflammation of the prostate and may be due to infection or irritation. This needs to be diagnosed on urinalysis, preferably from a sample collected immediately after ejaculation. Treatment is based on the antibiotic sensitivity of the organism and is for a longer course of 15-20 days.
Avatar m tn I am 20 week and I been having frequent (3 yeast) infection the doc prescribe a yest infection pill and said if i have another yeast infection she will have to test to see if i have an std. With the yest infection everything cleared up but the strong odor. my question is: if it was trichomoniasis would the yest infecton pill have ANY affect on the symptoms that trichomoniasis have. Everything is gone but the bad smell. It is not as bad but it is still there.
Avatar n tn Remember sugar feeds yeast. When you have an infection you will crave sugar and carbs. The yeast needs sugar to continue to thrive. I keep sugar free lollipops and licorice in house and I trick my body into thinking I am giving it sugar.
Avatar m tn -Pain in base of right testicle that is there most of the time. Gets worse sometimes with bowel movement. Went to urologist and he said no infection would persist after antibiotics given so nothing he can do... told me to try ibuprofen 3 times a day for 3 weeks, it did nothing. He put me on alpha blocker (alfuzosin) 2 weeks ago and it has done nothing. Pics of enflamed urethra and white spot on penis head in my profile.
Avatar f tn Douching upsets the natural balance of bacteria and yeast in your vagina and will cause infections. 2. Avoid bread and sugary foods as much as possible. If there is yeast in your vagina it is in the rest of your body too and sugar will just feed it. 3. Use condoms if you have sex. You CAN give a yeast infection to a guy (they usually get no symptoms) and then he will just keep passing it back to you. 4. Eat yogurt with live cultures in it - sugar free is best, but any kind helps. 5.
Avatar m tn can anyone here who knows a lot about yeast infections help me out and give me an honest list of foods to consume and ones to avoid. please experts only as I have made a few mistakes already by reading and taking the advice of charlatans.
796579 tn?1266435624 We went to using only baking soda water and Huggies Supreme or Kroger brand diapers and it went away. Give baby as much naked time as possible to air it out and avoid any wiped or straight water as that can sting an already irritated bottom.
Avatar m tn I am dealing with my first yeast infection (I'm 28) and I am starting to wonder why I am still experiencing symptoms after treatment. My symptoms started after I had been swimming a lot in a quarry. I had external vulval redness and vulval/anal itching, tingling, discomfort. No discharge that I noticed. I let the infection go for 6 weeks before seeing a Gyn. I tried treating at home first, with monistat 3 - and when that didn't work at all - natural remedies like tea tree oil, but to no avail.
Avatar n tn I have to rub my vagina realhard for the horniness to go away. Could this be due to the yeast infection... What can I do???? And did my having an STD mess everything up and now my vagina is all out of whack??? I am also nursing... Oh and this time I diagnosed my own yeast infection????
Avatar f tn Hmm sounds like you might need to consider finding a new doctor. And what she said about eating foods high in yeast and sugars is true.
