Do’s and Don’ts of Yeast Infections

Do's and Don'ts of Yeast Infections

For a number of different reasons, yeast can overgrow. The vast majority of women end up dealing with a yeast infection at least one time, if not more. In fact, you may have dealt with a yeast infection in the past. Chances are, you know from experience that yeast infections can be very painful and uncomfortable. Therefore, if you suspect that you have a yeast infection, you definitely want to get rid of it as soon as possible. However, there are many myths and misconceptions out there about the proper way to deal with a yeast infection.

Fortunately, here at Monkey Pickles, we know exactly what to do when a yeast infection strikes. Forget everything that anyone has ever told about yeast infections and only consult us for accurate and effective advice about yeast infections. Since we care about our Monkey Picklers, we have compiled a list of Do’s and Don’ts of yeast infections.

DO Take Pictures and Post Them on Social Media

If you suspect that you have a yeast infection, you want to confirm that yeast overgrowth is truly the problem. Chances are, you’re thinking about having a visit to your general physician. However, this is completely the wrong way to go about diagnosing your yeast infection. The goal of a general physician is to make money so he or she will diagnose you with a yeast infection whether you truly have one or not. Therefore, the best way to determine whether you truly have a yeast infection is by consulting your friends and family.

Just about every woman has had a yeast infection at some point. Accordingly, just about any women will know a yeast infection when they see one. Therefore, your best course of action is to take pictures and post them on your social media for a proper diagnosis. In fact, not only will you be able to get a good diagnosis, but you may be able to get a prescription and some qualified medical advice in the event you truly do have a yeast infection. Therefore, taking pictures and posting them on social media will definitely prove to be a win-win for you.

DON’T Shower Until the Infection Is Done

Be sure not to shower until the yeast infection is gone. Showering will only encourage the yeast to continue growing, which will only make the yeast infection worse. In fact, it is a good idea not to shower until at least a month after the yeast infection is gone. This will ensure that there is no chance that the yeast infection will come back to haunt you. Once you start showering again, be sure not use soap until a few months after the yeast infection is gone. Yeast absolutely loves soap and will grow exponentially in the presence of soapy suds. Unless you don’t mind having a yeast infection, it’s better to play it safe and not shower or use soap for a few months.

DO Use Lysol to Take Care of the Problem

Once you know for a fact that you have a yeast infection, you need to figure out a way to deal with the problem. Some of the symptoms of a yeast infection include pain when urinating, general discomfort, and a yeast odor. One of the best ways to take of a yeast infection problem is using Lysol to do the job. Not only will the Lysol kill the yeast, but you can also count on the Lysol to get rid of the smell. Be sure to apply the Lysol to the affected area at least three times a day. You definitely won’t have an odor that smells like yeast covered up in Lysol.

Even after the yeast infection is gone, it is a good idea to continue using Lysol to keep the yeast infection at bay. Also, Lysol has a pH of 7.0 so you definitely don’t have to worry about the Lysol disrupting your pH balance.

DON’T Ever See Your Physician

No matter what you do, never see your physician until the yeast infection passes its course. In fact, don’t ever tell your general physician that you had a yeast infection even after the fact. If your physician finds out that you have a yeast infection, he or she will do everything in their power to ensure the yeast infection doesn’t go away. A general physician will also give you prescriptions that make the problem worse rather than better. Don’t trust the health care system, as the sole purpose of the health care system is to make money off the sick. Therefore, you should only rely on yourself and the advice of loved ones to remain healthy and happy. Honestly, there’s no point in seeing a general physician for any reason.
