Had a yeast infection... didnt get it treated but symptoms went away after a couple days, can they cure themselves?

Yes indeed: We all carry yeasts on our skin and inside our body (intestines, genital, mouth, etc). A "yeast infection" doesn't mean you recently caught it, only that natural yeasts have grown more or your immune system responded more vigorously to them. Therefore, symptoms can come and go. If they return and are bothersome, see a doctor to confirm the diagnosis and treatment advice. But for now, no worries. ...Read more

If a man has a yeast infection but does nothing about it and the symptoms go away, does he still have it because he did not treat it? Or is it gone?

Probably still there: He probably still has it, but that really doesn't matter. We all normally carry yeasts in our rectums, genital tract, and skin, especially in moist areas like the groin. Yeast infections don't mean someone has acquired yeast. They already had it, but yeast grows to greater number or the body reacts to it. As long has he has no symptoms, there should be no concern. I hope that helps. Best wishes. ...Read more

Probiotics or yogurt with acidophilus can help a mild yeast infection, but most require treatment with medication. There are several other types of infections that can occur in the vagina such as bacterial infections and STDs. See doctor to make sure what type of infection it is. ...Read more
