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

Change clothes immediately after your workout. Do not sit around in sweaty or wet garments after working out or swimming. Yeast loves nothing more that dark, damp environments. After working out, change into clean, dry clothing. Also be sure to change your underwear in addition to your outer clothes.

Avoid wearing sweaty leotards, leggings, gym clothes or swimsuits any longer than necessary. Because these fabrics are often synthetic, they tend to trap heat and moisture against the skin, which encourages yeast growth. Change into dry clothes as soon as you have the chance; ideally, choose something made from cotton, silk, linen or another breathable fabric.
