What is a yeast infection?
“Yeast is a kind of fungus that normally lives in the vagina in small numbers. A vaginal yeast infection occurs when too many yeast cells grow in the vagina, often due to the use of antibiotics or other external factors. Yeast infections are very common. Although they may be uncomfortable, they’re not usually serious.”
- Dr. Brett Belchetz, ER Physician, Toronto
How do doctors treat yeast infections?
“If you’ve had a yeast infection before and recognize the symptoms, and you aren’t pregnant, I recommend treating yourself at home with medicines you can buy over the counter such as Canestin or Monistat. If you’re pregnant or you have symptoms you haven’t experienced before, you’ll need your doctor to confirm your diagnosis before you start treatment.”
“For more complicated yeast infections, such as those that don’t resolve with over the counter treatment, I’ll typically prescribe a course of oral antifungal medications, which are usually effective and well tolerated.”
- Dr. Peter Iracleous, ER Physician, Toronto
