Can A Yeast Infection Spread From My Vagina To My Nipples
Hi there, Eric Bakker, author of Candida Crusherwith another FAQ; another lady's one. Can yeast from my vagina be spread to thenipple area? It could, but it's not really likely. Youneed to be careful if you have oral thrush with sexual relations particularly to be careful.There is a chance of moving yeast around the body by engaging in oral sex, but it's quiteremote though. It's not something I've generally discovered in al practice. A yeast infection can occur in the nipplearea, so it's very important with lactation to keep that area quite clean and dry andto maybe use a tiny bit of oil around the
nipple region because oils and fats generallyare antifungal. So just a tiny little bit of oil around the region maybe quite beneficial;a little bit of coconut oil, a little bit of wool fat or lanolin is quite good to helplook after that nipple region. It's not really likely that you're going tospread a yeast infection, thrush, vaginal yeast infection to the nipple region. If youare breastfeeding, and you have got vaginal thrush, I recommend that you follow my twostageprotocol in Chapter 5 of my book, Candida Crusher. It will give you some very, verygood outlines on how to get rid of this thing once and for all. It's helped many women,and I'm sure it can help you, too.
Coming back to the nipples, if you do havea yeast infection there, you'll need to use local treatment and also systemic; alwaysget a better result when you do that. Try and follow a few of those ideas and thereis a lot more in my book you can read regarding recovery in this area. So I hope that answers your question. Thanksfor your question.
