Vulvovaginal yeast infections (Candidiasis) are experienced by women worldwide.1 It is the most common vaginal infections affecting women, usually during the childbearing years. It has been estimated that 3 out of 4 women will experience at least one episode of vulvovaginal candidiasis in their lifetime, and up to 1 out of 2 of women will experience more than one episode. Most commonly, these

infections of the vulva or vagina are caused by yeasts of the genus Candida (80% to 90%). Although not considered a severe illness, it can cause
significant discomfort. Currently available treatment options include topical
therapy and oral therapy (e. g. Salucan).

 

LIKELY CAUSES OF CANDIDIASIS (TOILET INFECTION)

1. Changes in the vaginal environment e.g. during antibiotic therapy: Lactobacillus is involved in the inhibition of overgrowth of normal flora. During antibiotic therapy, Lactobacillus levels decrease allowing the overgrowth of candida species 1.

 

2. Also high levels of estrogen (as seen in women of child-bearing age) may increase the risk of vulvovaginal candidiasis by changes in glycogen content of the vagina.

 

3. Other factors that may also play a role in the development of vulvovaginal infections:

Lifestyle - Stress, Lack of sleep, Poor eating habits, Change in hygiene, Sexual activity
