Health Tip: Prevent Yeast Infections

(HealthDay News) -- Vaginal yeast infections are caused by a fungus that thrives when a woman's body changes because of a period, pregnancy or medication she may be taking.
Here are suggestions to prevent these infections, courtesy of the American Academy of Family Physicians:
· Avoid underwear and pants that are made of synthetic fibers. Stick to all-cotton underwear.
· Wear loose-fitting clothing.
· Avoid wearing pantyhose daily.
· Remove wet swimsuits, clothing, or underwear immediately.
· Avoid artificially fragranced or colored products such as sprays, tampons, pads, douches, or bubble baths, as they can affect the area's acid balance, which can promote symptoms of a yeast infection.
