Why do I keep getting yeast infections? I have all cotton underwear, don't wear restricting clothing, choose to often go without any bottoms at all because I work from home. I've probably gotten 7 or 8 within the past year with flare ups of BV as well and I don't know how to make it stop.

Dear customer

Thank you for being online.

Following is recommended for you to prevent yeast infections:

  • Probiotics are one of the most important parts of a Candida albicans/yeast infection cure..There are many brands of probiotics easily available as over the counter at your pharmacy.

  • · Keep you genital area clean & dry .

    · Remove wet, sweaty bottom clothing as soon as possible.

    · Always wipe yourself from front to back after experiencing a bowel movement to prevent fecal matter from coming into contact with your vagina, which can cause a bacterial infection.

    · Avoid perfumed soaps, gels and antiseptics as these can affect the healthy balance of bacteria and pH levels in the vagina and cause irritation.

  • Protect your vagina against the infections by using a condom every time you have sex.

Also get check your blood sugar level. Limit your sugar intake.

All these will help you greatly to prevent yeast infections & BV infections.

Thank you.

Hope this helped
