In brief: Wrong treatments

Yeast is a type of infection that results when there is an imbalance of the many things that live in and on our bodies.
..Usually caused by antibiotics. Cortisone is a steroid used to decrease inflammation when it is not helping but rather causes problems. Like antibacterials for bacteria, a treatment specific for treating yeast should be used. Depending on where it is, the treatment varies.
