Is it important for you to know about bacterial vaginosis symptoms? Offering their take on the prevalence of this condition is the US National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases. Almost three quarters of American adult women have experienced this condition, vaginal bacterial vaginosis, at least once.
Two or more repeat occurrences will happen to approximately forty-five percent of those same women. After being sexually involved with a partner who has a bacterial vaginosis, about fifteen percent of American men will end up with bacterial vaginosis symptoms. These numbers are very unfortunate and should cause everyone some degree of concern.
There is a reason why the Candida yeast lives on the skin, as previously stated. In order for an over-growth, or infection, condition to occur, there must be a certain number and types of contributing factors. Unless the skin is broken down in some way, there is basically no way that the skin won’t keep the organism out of the body.
As long as certain other things are taking place, then fungus will certainly thrive. A rash that is reddish, and has a flat look, is the appearance that a Candida skin infection will take. When you find a rash on your body, check to see if there is a scalloped texture to the tiny, sharp edges. Smaller rashes will also be found located around the main, larger rash.
There is quite a range of symptoms that women experience with bacterial vaginosis of the vagina, such as burning sensation or discharge, along with soreness around the vagina and pain during intercourse.
Vaginal discharge may not occur, though, but if so then it is usually thick with a white-colored appearance which is odorless. This type of infection may cause a secondary condition such as vulvitis or vaginitis.
The stated symptoms involving pain along with inflammation are also symptoms of vulvitis but can be caused by the bacterial vaginosis condition. In such situations, many women will self-medicate with over-the-counter drugs. After trying many medications and treatments, you may eventually need a doctors advice.
It is a possibility for a bacterial vaginosis to end up in a general location after spreading through the body. This is considered to be quite rare, as it doesn’t happen very often. This widespread and systemic infection by yeast is fatal in up to approximately 75% of cases.
It is very possible that you have a much more serious medical condition, if you have a persistent bacterial vaginosis that keeps reoccurring. You may have put off talking to a doctor, but if your bacterial vaginosis won’t go away, then maybe it is time. You can get serious complications when your vaginal or oral bacterial vaginosis are not treated and gotten rid of.
Regardless of what type of bacterial vaginosis that you have, get medical help as soon as possible. Although bacterial vaginosis are quite common, primary factors can contribute to their appearance as well. Your physician will be able to determine if you have a bacterial vaginosis or other infections as well.
If your body has a dramatic change in its chemistry, or you have had antibiotics which affected your autoimmune system, this may be why you have this type of infection.
If your lifestyle as of late has seen an increase in stress, your immune system may be compromised, thus leading to increased infections. Also, yeast can actually overproduce for several different reasons which may enhance reoccurring infections.
