Girls’ Problems with Candidiasis: Causes and Cures

Date: March 2021

Over the recent years, inflammatory gynaecological disorders have taken up one of the first places. Yet many people are not really aware of causes and possible implications that particular diseases may have.

It’s been just recently that our team members of the project “Our Health Is in Our Hands” under the UWCF program “Walking to the Health Land” heard someone’s conversation about the well-known vaginal yeast and realized that parents are often unaware of its actual causes, especially in teenage girls.

Teenage girls tend to hide this disease from their mothers, they are just kids who feel depressed and embarrassed. Parents should pay attention to their daughters’ emotional behaviour to timely detect the disease.

Our UWCF program “Walking to the Health Land” has a good partner Contribution to Medicine Development International Charitable Fund that has launched the all-Ukrainian charitable project “Free Medical Advice” helping people in rural communities get a better access to high-quality medical services. For this purpose, the charitable fund organises field health checks for local population where they receive professional medical examinations and consultations from volunteer doctors. Those mobile medical teams also include gynaecologists.

When vaginal yeast pills are taken unsystematically or incorrectly, this may result in their decreased efficiency and, respectively, extend the treatment period. Besides, antifungal drugs have a number of side effects, counter-indications, and certain complications in case of their misuse. Only a professional gynaecologist can give advice on the proper treatment of vaginal yeast.

Experienced doctors can help quickly relieve the unwelcome symptoms and prescribe efficient therapies for candidiasis so that you will forget about this disease once and for all.

The team of the project “Our Health Is in Our Hands” working under the UWCF program “Walking to the Health Land” would like to express our sincerest thanks to the all-Ukrainian charitable project “Free Medical Advice” being implemented by Contribution to Medicine Development ICF, for the donations of antifungal and antimicrobial agent Clofan, worth UAH 338,800, that our UWCF team have handed over for residents of Zhytomyr Region and Dnipropetrovsk Region.

Self-medication may cause the disease recurrence and develop resistance to medicines.
