5 Things You Might Mistake For A Yeast Infection

Yeast infections don't have a monopoly on itching, burning, and weird discharge. For SELF, by Zahra Barnes. Lizzie Roberts / Getty Images In today's roundup of extremely obvious statements: The sky is blue, grass is green, and no one wants to get a yeast infection. But unfortunately, for some people with vaginas, they're a fact of life. These annoying infections happen due to an overgrowth of the naturally occurring fungus Candida albicans, and they're pretty common, affecting three out of every four women in their lifetimes, according to Mayo Clinic. Since yeast infections aren't exactly rare, when you experience those hallmark symptoms--itching is the biggest one, followed by strange discharge and burning--you may immediately diagnose yourself, pop over to the pharmacy, and pick up some over-the-counter meds. Only issue is, quite a few other meddlesome vaginal issues can cause similar symptoms but necessitate wildly different treatments. Here, ob/gyns walk you through the most common ones. 1. Chlamydia and gonorrhea "Yeast infections tend to produce inflammation, which is why you get those symptoms," Idries Abdur-Rahman, M.D., a board-certified ob/gyn, tells SELF. "Anything that causes or mimics inflammation can cause similar ones," he explains. Sexually transmitted infections like chlamydia and gonorrhea fit the bill. Yeast infection-related discharge is often "thick, white, and cottage cheese-like," Hilda Hutcherson, M.D., professor o...

Conclusions: Through simulations, we determined that among the studied environmental factors, precipitation showed the strongest correlation with the transmission dynamics of influenza. Moreover, the SIR+P+T model is the most efficient for simulating the behavioral dynamics of influenza in the area of interest. PMID: 30788178 [PubMed]

This study was aimed to investigate the anti-oxidative and the ameliorative effects of Antrodia cinnamomea ethanol extract (ACEE) on reproduction dysfunction in male diabetic rats. The diabetic condition was induced by administrating the combination of streptozotocin (STZ) (65 mg/kg) and nicotinamide (NA) (230 mg/kg). Three different doses of ACEE were tested (385, 770, 1540 mg/kg) for 5 weeks. The results indicated that the ACEE improved STZ-NA induced hyperglycemia, oxidative stress, and insulin resistance. In addition to this, ACEE reduced the degree of lipid peroxidation, recovered the abnormal str...

Bhardwaj, Deepanshu Bhatt, Dong Kwon Lim, Ki-Hyun Kim, Akash DeepAbstractThe consumption of microbiologically contaminated water poses serious threats to human health in the form of outbreaks of severe waterborne diseases. The accurate detection and identification of microbial pathogens (e.g., bacteria, fungi, viruses, and parasites) in water is thus imperative to prevent such undesirable situations. This review is organized to describe methodological approaches developed for optical sensing sy...

During algae bloom outbreaks, an •OH drinking water treatment system with a capacity of 480 m3/day, was built in the Xinglin water plant in Xiamen, China. The •OH, which was produced using the strong ionization discharge combined with hydrodynamic cavitation effect, was applied in the...
