Article 4: 7 Mistakes To Avoid When Suffering From A Yeast Infection

If you have recurring yeast infections, you should rethink the bath products you use. Do not use cleansers and soaps that have dyes and fragrances. These products can alter your natural chemistry and pH balance in your vagina to make a place that promotes yeast growth. You should instead use hypoallergenic and mild products.

Only use gentle, non-irritating products on your vagina, avoiding scents. Anything from sprays to soaps to scented pads can cause a yeast infection. It is especially important not to use scented tampons or pads as they come in the closest contact and can be especially irritating. Also, don't use toilet paper with colored dyes.
