Can I Pass A Yeast Infection On To My Unborn Baby
Hi there, Eric Bakker, naturopath, authorof Candida Crusher and another frequently asked question. Can I pass a yeast infection on to my unbornbaby? You can. Many children are born with varyingtypes of conditions that the mother actually has. It's not impossible to do that and cautionneeds to be taken. This is why it's quite clever of you to try and clear any vaginalissues that you have in the second or third trimester, in particular, which will makeit a lot easier for you. Genital herpes is another concern that manys have of a woman passing an active
herpes condition onto her baby if she hasgenital herpes. It is possible to pass this on to your unborn baby or I should say babywhen it's being born. If the baby's still in utero, it's not highly likely that thebaby's going to have a yeast infection from you. Although some people would argue thatsystemic infection can pass through the placenta into the child, but I've not really seen evidenceof this. Perhaps I didn't' answer that question properly,but when you give birth to a child and you have active vaginal thrush, there is a chancethat you will pass it on. But if the baby's in utero and has not been delivered yet, there'sprobably a very slim risk of you passing that
on because the baby's in quite a safe environment. So I do hope that answers your question. Thankyou.
Can My Man Give Me A Yeast Infection
Good day there, Eric Bakker, naturopath, authorof Candida Crusher with another guy question. Can my man give me a yeast infection? He can. It's absolutely possible and particularlymen who are uncircumcised because if they roll the foreskin back, you see a white sortof skin irritation under hear. This could well be yeast. So a good advice if a maleis in doubt is to go to this and get that particular white sort of covering aroundpenis there and get it checked out and swabbed to see if the can culture yeast offthis. It's a very common place for a guy to have a yeast infection, so a good thing fora male to do is observe good hygiene and roll
the foreskin back and wash this area verycarefully and thoroughly. It's quite common. So a man can pass his infection to a partner,and this in turn can be passed back to him. So observe good hygiene. Tea tree oil is anexcellent product, good antifungal to use. And tea tree oil soap is what I recommendto males to wash the genital region thoroughly with and his groin. A yeast infection can be around the rectalarea, inner thighs, scrotum, penis; this whole area can be affected. And some guys are affectedhorrendously with this condition. It's a terrible thing to have. It can last for years and drivea guy absolutely crazy.
So yes, a man can give you a yeast infection.So make sure that your man gets on top of his infection. Chapter 3 in my book will explainhow he can rid of his male yeast infection. I hope that answers your question. Thank you.
