In brief: Several factors
Several factors can cause chronic yeast infections- 1.
Local balance of normal flora is disrupted, typically from the recent user of antibiotics; 2. Impaired immunity- this may be due to steroid use or having other illnesses such as hiv; 3. Misdiagnosis of symptoms in the absence of yeast from testing- adverse drug effects can be mistaken as a yeast infection. Consult your gyn or id specialist.
