Recurrent yeast: If symptoms are the same as last time, it should be OK to re-treat yourself with an over-the-counter yeast medication like miconazole, terconazole, etc (a pharmacist can advise you).

Incubation period for adult oral yeast infection?

Not quite that way: Oral yeast is usually the plain old candida. We get it when we are babies, and we always have it. Everybody has it.

For example, asthma inhalers like flovent, that have steroids in them, can cause oral thrush. ...Read more

Don"t douche, use pads/tampons intermittently and go see your obgyn. ...Read more
