Recurrent yeast: I doubt this had anything to do with it. I suspect, however, that yeast 'likes you' for some reason - and I would try to find out 'why'. For example - have you been checked for diabetes? How about recent antibiotics? You should have a complete check up to identify 'why' this occurred. To me, it means something and I would want to find out. Hope you recover soon.
