Do You Itch Down There?

Most women at some point will experience vaginal yeast infection.
For women with diabetes, they are much more likely to get annoying and painful infections with the candida yeast, because candida feeds off glucose.

If you're not sure if you have a yeast infection, look for a white, cottage cheese-like discharge, itchiness and foul odor.
There are lots of over-the-counter medications for treating yeast infections but many medical experts recommend visiting your doctor instead of self-treating.

To prevent it, maintain good blood glucose control (for diabetics), skip scented soaps, avoid douches and keep vaginal area dry by wearing cotton underwear and avoiding tightly fitted pants.
