Common Questions and Answers about Yeast infections hot tubs


Avatar n tn I had reoccurring yeast infections for 5 years! Went to numerous doctors tried everything you can think of untill a wonderfull Dr. told me to take ACIDOPHILLUS tablets(you can buy them at Wal-Mart)every day. I have not had another Yeast Infection since. Just wanted to share that.
Avatar f tn avoid synthetic fabrics for your underwhatevers, stick with cotton, also avoid wearing too tight of things there; change out of wet swimsuits ASAP (yeast thrive in that environment); avoid hot tubs and very hot baths; and I know of some women that have resorted to going sans-underpants aside from on their period or when wearing a skirt and that was what it took to stop recurring yeast infections.
Avatar f tn Over 2 years I have had recurrent yeast infections especially after having sex with my husband. I decided to go for a check up and had to repeat a Pap smear because my doctor of 15 years wanted it repeated for a reason she did not tell me. One of her associates re-examined me 4 months later while she is on vacation. I am menapausal and thought that the menapause had something to do with the yeast infections. My husband of 21 years say that he does not cheat nor has he.
Avatar f tn You should I my have warm baths for half an hour so you don't bring your temp up too much but bubbles shouldn't be an issue
Avatar f tn Definitely have your mom take you to the doctor you don't want to have to worry about this anymore and it's nothing to be ashamed of. I used to get yeast infections from a public pool and the hot tubs at the local YMCA. It would happen almost every time I went. Important thing is to get checked. Let us know how everything goes :D Glad you reached out on here.
Avatar f tn Well the cream worked but sometimes it comes back within like 2 weeks, I've always been very sensitive to yeast ive gotten yeast infections since I was a child and was told not to take baths, don't do hot tubs, were cotton underwear ect. I haven't had alot of partners but over a year ago I gave birth to daughter, it was already a planned csection due to a previous still birth.
Avatar n tn To maintain a steady temperature, water is circulated and re-circulated through the hot tub to pump out cold water and pump in hot water. So, is a hot bath safer than using a hot tub? A hot bath, which is not uncomfortable or scalding, is a safer way to relax. In a bath much of your upper body will remain out of the water, making you less likely to overheat. Additionally, the water in a bath begins to cool off, as opposed to a hot tub, further reducing any risk of overheating.
Avatar f tn You can have a hot(ish) bath as long as it's not *too* hot. I have mine warm because if I have them hot they make me dizzy.
Avatar f tn Do you feel the sore throat with ulcer could be related in any way? 6. Do you feel I could have had a bacterial infection from the hot tubs and/or sex? I would like to add I had not had sex with anyone else but this person for over a year. Thank you for your time and knowledge. It is definitely a worthwhile service you are providing all of us here and I greatly appreciate the dedication put into answering all our questions.
Avatar n tn (This is where it gets tricky - you might need to verify that it's yeast, and not a bacterial infection. Apparently bacterial infections are more common, and need to be treated in another manner.) But nothing works like the Vitamin C. You might also consider trying to change your diet. Before I had discovered Vitamin C I changed my diet drastically, cutting out all sweets and carbs, as well as briny foods and alcohol - and this seemed to help as well.
Avatar n tn Like I said you can't rule out any STDs that you haven't tested negative for at a conclusive time frame.. IE a herpes test is conclusive at 3 months post an exposure. Yes, yeast infections Trick is a questionable STD... some doctors don't consider it to be an STD as you can get it from other sources such as hot tubs.. we can't tell you if you have any thing whether STD or bacteria. You test shows you were negitive so if you continue with symptoms then return to your doctor or a urologist.
Avatar f tn like the one described in the 1st question? Can hot tubs (followed by intercourse) cause both yeast infections and UTIs, simultaneously? Thank you very much again. This site has shed an incredible amount of light on the subject.
528396 tn?1217529613 Or google your symtoms and thoroughly check every medical issue that comes up. Has your husband been checked for yeast infections-he could be a carrier that doesn't get the symptoms. Also everytime you start to get one you may not know it right away and then give it to your husband and he gives it back to you, a cycle that is hard to stop.
1319792 tn?1277324733 When it comes to spa's/hot tubs/ pools etc. I know that the virus doesn't survive long outside the body, but just want to know your recommendations on the matter? Should i never enter another hot tub/pool again? stay away from them when symptoms are present?
Avatar f tn Basically, once sperm have been ejaculated into the vagina, their goal is to find an egg to fertilize, and water will not stop this mission. Water will not act as a contraceptive. MYTH - The Higher Temperatures of Hot Tubs and Jacuzzis Help Prevent Pregnancy: Many people believe that it is safe to have sex in a hot tub or Jacuzzi due to the mistaken belief that the heat in a hot tub kills sperm.
Avatar n tn Although rare, transmission is also possible in tap water, hot tubs, urine, on toilet seats, and in swimming pools. May cause vaginitis. Vaginal yeast infection: An overgrowth of the normal fungi that inhabits the vaginal area. Common symptoms include itching, burning, and an odorless, white, cheese-like discharge. Endometritis or adenomyosis: Endometritis is defined by Dorland's Medical Dictionary, 27th Edition as an inflammation of the endometrium (the innermost layer of the uterus).
Avatar n tn i was told to avoid hot tubs and heated pools only 99-100 too hot we kill all the good bacteria especially if your messing around in the hot water, also douching is killing things off so its best to take a shower after sex or a tempid tub bath but never too hot.. take probiotics or eat yogurt .. frequent daily sex can cause BV and multiple partners even ORAL can cause a problem... i was told by my gyno...
Avatar m tn Some causes can be tight clothes irritating the skin, whirlpools, hot tubs or swimming pools that are poorly chlorinated etc and a number of other causes. Look like pimples with hairs in the middle. They may have puss in them and itch or burn. Here's a link to info with symptoms and treatment. You need to see a doctor. And don't be embarrassed. Doctors see and hear stuff every day.
Avatar f tn It can also be caused by hot tubs, abrasion, tissue, tampons or topical medications Women who have diabetes develop infectious vaginitis more often than women who do not( I don't know if you have been tested for this ) The treatment for Bacterial vaginosis: The most commonly used antibiotics are metronizadole, available in both pill and gel form, and clindamycin available in both pill and cream form As for having children yes I had three!!
Avatar f tn I'm not really familiar with this conversation however sex is not the only way to contract this STD. Hot tubs, toilets, etc. Although it is very rare, it can be contracted in more ways than just sex.
Avatar f tn As for the weird smell coming from your vagina, how often does he shower? Could be a yeast infection or a UTI, either way stop having unprotected sex with him or better yet don't let him come around till he's clean and your problems will be solved. Good luck!
Avatar n tn It definitely sounds like a yeast. Yeast infections can come about also after extensive antibiotic use. Probiotics have helped me. Probiotics are a good bacteria which balances our body. One can also purchase acidopholis which is the bacteria found in yogurt. It is fairly inexpensive and can be purchased at most drug stores and health food stores, though CVS and such stores have inexpensive brands.
Avatar n tn Even though this thread is going on two years running, I found it very informative. In my past, i used to get frequent yeast infections, then didn't have one for many, many years. Then about three years ago, I got the symptoms of a yeast infection, right out of the blue. Or thought it was one. I tried to self treat a few times, yet it kept coming back. I finally went to the GYN and she did a pap and swab.
Avatar f tn How long have you been experiencing pain/irritation? Have you had bladder infections (UTI's), Cysts, or yeast infections in the past? PLEASE, PLEASE EMAIL ME THIS SO WE CAN TRY AND FIGURE THIS OUT. I know this has been going on for some of you for only months, some years and it will be a year for me in February; and I know most of us have been to more then one doctor about it.
Avatar m tn And you're right regarding rashes and hot tubs. I guess in my anxious state of mind I immediately took any genital symptoms and warped it to convince myself I had genital herpes. At this point I'm not particularly concerned about the rash on the testicles; its come and gone twice now in the span of two weeks or so, and responds to hydrocortisone.
Avatar f tn I felt I needed to soak in the hot tub for awhile tonight, and now I feel very weak, but not bad where I cannot walk. Just jello like. I now know what everyone means about, something stirring up in me and glad I feel crappy, because I believe more and more everyday that its lyme. Getting closer I think to a diagnosis... I go back to LLMD Nov. 4th.
172826 tn?1423426556 I know some infections can be transmitted by sharing a hot-tub with someone with an infection(more commen for woman to actually get the infection this way). If you have been faithful then he is not being honest with you. Good luck and I am sorry you are going through this.
127512 tn?1193745816 Almost all UTIs are caused by e coli, *your own bacteria already on your vulva*. Yeast infections and BV are imbalances of bacteria in your own vagina, for whatever reason - but NOT other people, and NOT shared water of any kind.
