Yeast sites vary: Yeast infections usually occur in the oral passages, vagina, foreskin and penis, and in the skin where there are creases( armpits, groin, breasts). Taking antibiotics kills the good bacteria allowing the yeast to grow. High blood sugar and taking cortisone type medications also favor yeast growth. Yeast can be transmitted during sexual actvity as well. Warm moist areas favor yeast growth. ...Read more

Rest fluids ibuprofe: Most throat infections are caused by viruses. Therefore, they are self limited. Treatment is symptomatic- relieving pain, fever or aches. Rest is important to help the body conserve energy to fight off the infection. A strep throat infection is also self limited, but we treat it with antibiotics to avoid secondary problems like rheumatic fever, glomerulonephritis, or pandas. ...Read more
