Yeast Infection: To reduce your risk of vaginal yeast infection you can avoid douching, wear cotton underwear and loose fitting pants or skirts, avoid tight-fitting underwear or pantyhose, change out of wet clothes, such as swimsuits or workout attire, as soon as possible, stay out of hot tubs or very hot baths.Talk to a doctor about recurrent yeast infection and if you have a partner, have them treated as well :].
