I find that I get yeast infections really bad. I was reading a book that my mom bought me about yeast. Over growth can supposedly cause all these problems. Does anyone know about candida yeast?

IBDers are prone to bacterial overgrowth which is why a good probiotic daily and indefinitely is essential for us...since taking probiotics daily I haven't had a yeast infection and it's been over 3 yrs now which is a record for me...it's also aided with my lactose intolerance issues and severe mouth sores.

You can also use plain yogurt vaginally to clear up yeast infections doing this once/day at bedtime (wear a pad) will clear it up in a few days...I used to use it at least 4-5 days to prevent it from re-occuring.

I started a probiotic about a month ago and I think it does help. I take Kyo-Probiotics since I'm lactose intollerant. Before this yeast infections were regular for me.

Primadophilus reuteri made by natures way also aids with lactose intolerance issues, high cholesterol and vaginal health...it's the one that I use...it has guaranteed intestinal release and only one/day is needed, it's also very affordable especially since only one/day is needed.

When I get yeast infections I use a liquid treatment from my local health food store it restores the PH balance. I'm sorry I can't remember the name. A bit spendy but works. You mix it with water.

I was getting frequent yeats infections a little over a year ago. I would take the diflucan, and it would be better for a couple of weeks, and then it would be back. It wasnt until I took, 1 diflucan, then a week later, I took 1 more pill. Then 1 more pill a month later, and one more pill a month after that. It totally cleared it up and I haven't had one since then. Btw, I had never had yeast infections before that.

Thanks for your ideas guys. For the probiotics, what are the best types. I used to take Acidophilus, but the brand I bought made the pills with lactose and that definitely didn't make me feel any better.

That's why I suggested the primadophilus reuteri made by natures way.
