Vaginal yeast infection treatment for infections that just won't go away is a little more complicated than recurring or occasional vaginal yeast infections. With this type of womens yeast infection, you will need to determine if there are other health problems that are contributing to the yeast infection.
More than likely, the yeast has become firmly entrenched right below the outer skin layers of the vaginal walls where it can hide from many over the counter and prescription creams. That's why these drugs will only seem to work for a very short time and then the yeast infection returns.
At this point, it is probably safe to say that you also have other symptoms of systemic yeast. The most common will be intestinal problems but you might also have skin or fungal infections of the nails.
If you do have intestinal involvement, which is highly probable then you could simply be re-infecting yourself month after month. It is very easy for yeast to travel from the anus to the vagina because of their close proximity. Anal itching is a very good indication that this is exactly what is happening although this doesn't always occur. If this is what's going on you will need to treat the intestinal infection while using the vaginal yeast infection treatment remedies.
Sometimes these infections are caused by an over growth of acidophilus and are not yeast at all. An over growth of acidophilus makes the vagina too acidic, leading to itching, burning and discharge. Your doctor can run a ph test to see if this is the case while also taking a vaginal swab to check for the presence of yeast.
Yeast has the ability to become resistant to prescription drugs and over the counter creams. These may work initially but if there are underlying problems that are not addressed, they quite often fail to work after a while.
Do you have intestinal yeast?
You can check this page for symptoms of intestinal yeast or take the yeast infection questionnaire to help verify intestinal yeast problems. You could also get stool tested by using one of the stool tests I suggest on this webpage.
Most women however would rather spend their hard earned dollars on treating themselves rather that getting stool tested. If this is you, I would consider doing an intestinal cleanse while treating yourself vaginally with the suggestions on this page.
Do you have a hormone problem?
Out of balance hormones are a big problem or women that suffer from recurring infections that won't go away. Yeast becomes dependent on estrogen so if there is to much, it keeps it alive by feeding it because estrogen controls vaginal sugar levels. If you have this problem it will have to be corrected.
Have you recently been on antibiotics?
Antibiotics also cause yeast infections by killing your good bacteria that keep yeast under control. Depending upon the antibiotic, it can take three months to a year to recover. During your recovery you will have to treat the yeast infections as well.
Is it Cytolytic vaginosis?
Cytolytic vaginosis is also called lactobacillus overgrowth syndrome or Doderlein's cytolysis. It happens when your vagina has to much lactobacillus acidophilus which makes the vagina to acidic. Symptoms are nearly identical to vaginal candidiasis and these women are quite often misdiagnosed.
Could it be Bacterial Vaginosis?
Bacterial vaginosis is most often caused by an over growth of the bacteria gardnerella. But can also be caused by Prevotella, Peptostreptococcus and Bacteroides spp. bacteria. Typical symptoms are a greenish frothy discharge and a very foul fishy smell.
Do you possibly have to much mercury in your body?
I would go over to this page and review the symptoms and how to get tested. There is also a link to the page that explains exactly how to remove mercury safely while treating yourself for yeast at the same time.
If you don't have hormonal problems or to much mercury in your body. Most of the time, if you do the Intestinal cleanse in combination with treating the infection directly with the Yeast Infection Remedies, you can get rid of these infections.
Vaginal Yeast Infection Treatment Remedies
The treatment for vaginal yeast infection remedies should be used in conjunction with the intestinal yeast protocol below which kills the yeast from the inside. These remedies kill it from the outside and when combined with those for the inside, very good success rates have been achieved.
Intestinal Yeast Infection Protocol
The intestinal protocol on that webpage is what you should follow if heavy metals are not a problem. At the same time you should also correct any hormone related problems if that is what you have determined to be the original cause of your infection. This is also the protocol to follow if you have determined you also have intestinal yeast. Don't forget to use the Vaginal Yeast Infection Remedies while you follow this protocol.
Pregnancy Yeast Infections
If you are pregnant and have a vaginal yeast infection, I would follow what is on this webpage because it is safe for your baby.
