Chronic Yeast Infection Treatment in NYC
Don’t Suffer from Reoccuring Vaginal Yeast Infections
Specializing in Treatment for Chronic Yeast Infections
Approximately 75% of all women have a symptomatic yeast infection at some point in their lives. It is normal to have yeast and other bacteria in the vagina; however, some women experience uncomfortable symptoms and about 5% of women have chronic infections due to vaginal yeast infections caused by a fungus, usually Candida albicans, a common organism that may or may not cause discomfort.
The most common types of vaginitis or chronic yeast infections are:
- Bacterial vaginosis
- Yeast infections
- Vaginal atrophy (atrophic vaginitis)
Common Cause of Reoccuring Vaginitis | Yeast Infections
Experts estimate that 40% of all types of vaginitis are caused by candida. Yeast overgrowth, candida, is a pandemic today and affects millions. If you have suffered from four or more yeast infections in the past 12 months then you have chronic vaginitis. The recurrence is usually caused by reinfection with the same organism from a vaginal reservoir, typically Candida albicans, a harmless yeast, a type of fungus that lives in everyone’s body. In a healthy body it lives in symbiotically in the body but it can overgrow and turn into an opportunistic pathogen. Besides causing most vaginal yeast infections, Candida also causes infections in other moist areas of your body such as your mouth, skin folds and nail beds.
Treatment for Chronic Yeast Infections
At Mitchell Medical Group, we specialize in alternative treatment for chronic vaginitis due to candida overgrowth. During your consultation, Dr. Mitchell does an extensive review of your medical history and a skin test which helps show your reactivity to candida immediately. If you have a strong immediate reaction to the Candida skin test you can see for yourself how the Candida is involved in your immune system.
When chronic vaginitis is due to overgrowth of Candida in the body our treatment focuses around restoring proper immunity to Candida. This is primarily done with a yeast-free diet and by sublingual immunotherapy. Sublingual immunotherapy is a special approach that involves the patient taking drops under the tongue to build up their immune system in a slow, safe and comfortable way so that the Candida does not return which means no more chronic vaginitis.
