What Causes Yeast Infections?

Do you think you have a yeast infection? No, I am not talking about your bread rising too high. Candida is typically the cause of yeast infections, and there are over 20 species of Candida that live on all of the surfaces of our bodies. When our immune system keeps them in check, they won’t cause any harm to our bodies. However, when the yeast gets out of control you could get infections like vaginal yeast infections, thrush, skin rashes, nailbed infections, or diaper rashes in babies.

yeast-infectionWe all have yeast naturally living on our largest organ, the skin, our skin works very effectively at keeping yeast out of our bodies. We all get cuts, scratches, or wounds, though, and that’s when the yeast takes the opportunity to get under our skin. In addition to getting cuts, the most common cause for getting a yeast infection is using an antibiotic or steroid. Antibiotics will kill bad bacteria and yeast infecting our bodies, but it will also kill the good bacteria and yeast that help our systems function and keeps those foreign invaders at bay.

People with weakened immune systems are more susceptible to infections and illnesses, and yeast infections are no exception. Fifteen percent of people with weakened immune systems can develop a serious yeast infection that will enter into the bloodstream and cause much more complicated problems than would develop with a regular yeast infection. These types of infections can easily become worse with the use of antibiotics because the antibiotics kill off the good yeast and bacteria that would fight the infection. If you have a weakened immune system, you should begin treatment as soon as possible and talk to your doctor immediately if you think you may have a yeast infection.

At some point, just about everyone has to deal with a yeast infection. It is important to start treating it as soon as possible because your immune system cannot get the yeast back under control without help. For information about our treatment products, see our product page.
