Learn simple yeast infection cures to naturally treat your infection. Also, learn yeast infection causes and a home remedy or two.
Yeast infections (also called "candidias") are very common. They are an inflammation of your vagina that causes you to feel uncomfortably itchy and to have vaginal discharge.
Yeast Infection Causes
Yeast infections are caused by a fungus called "candida." We all need a certain amount of this fungus along with bacteria in order to be healthy.
The problem comes when the balance of fungus and bacteria gets out of control, and yeast begins to multiply at an unhealthy rate. When this happens, we have too much yeast in our vaginas, and we get yeast infections.
This can be caused by a number of factors:
Antibiotics are probably the main cause of yeast infections for most women. Antibiotics don't directly give us yeast infections, but they kill off the healthy bacteria in our vaginas, which leads to yeast infections.
