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.
What Is The Difference Between A Yeast Infection And An STD
Good day, Eric Bakker, naturopath, authorof Candida Crusher with another frequently asked question. What is the difference between a yeast infectionand an STD? An STD is a sexually transmitted disease.Well, there are quite a few differences between both of these problems. An STD is generallya disease transmitted between two people through sexual contact: oral sex, anal sex, straightsex, whatever sex you want to call it. Sometimes in rare cases, STDs can be transferred throughneedle sharing, although in more rare situations. Yeast infections can be sexually transmitted.Don't ever doubt that. But everybody will
contain in their bodies, in the digestivesystem, females in the vaginal area they will have yeast to some degree. And it's when theseyeast get out of hand that you're going to get an infection. Particularly, when theyproliferate or if they're exacerbated through antibiotic use, which is a very common causeof yeast infections, is taking antibiotics. So there is a difference between a yeast infectionand an STD, but STDs are not yeast infections, generally, in terms of only being transmittedsexually, where sexually transmitted diseases are transmitted sexually like Chlamydia andGonorrhea and Syphilis. These diseases are transmitted through the sexual route.
You can read a lot more about the differenttypes of STDs in my book. In fact, I've drawn you a big diagram showing you all the differentsexually transmitted diseases, the discharge, the irritation, whether they itch, what odorsthey have, and I've compared those with a yeast infection to give you a good comparison. A very common thing that many women have isbacterial vaginosis, which they confuse for a yeast infection. So it's good for you toknow the difference between a yeast infection and Chlamydia, for example, or Gonorrhea becausethese diseases do resurface from time and time again.
Is there a difference? Yes, there is a differencebetween them both. But a yeast infection can be transmitted sexually, but is not a sexuallytransmitted disease per se. So I hope that answers your question. Thankyou.
