Is It Dangerous To Take Diflucan When You Don’t Have A Yeast Infection

Is it dangerous to take Diflucan when you don’t have a yeast infection? Well, while it may not be dangerous at first, the long term effects of taking any anti fungal drug when you don’t have a fungal infection can seriously effect your health. A doctor would never prescribe any yeast infection treatment if you don’t have a yeast infection, and there are many good reasons for this.

Candida is in all of us living harmlessly

The Candida Albicans yeast which is the culprit for almost all yeast infections lives harmlessly in all of us. Your body naturally keeps it under control with a population of friendly bacteria, the same bacteria you see in live yogurts. When you get a yeast infection, the Candia yeast mutates into an aggressive fungus and start causing your symptoms.

If you start taking Diflucan you will cause the yeast to mutate, as it does this as to fight off the Diflucan that you’re putting into your body. When the yeast mutates into a fungus it will become resistant to the Diflucan because of the exposure it has had to the anti fungal drug.

Resistant yeast infections

Once you have created the super yeast that is resistant to fluconazole ( the active ingredient in Diflucan ) you’ll then need to get stronger drugs prescribed to you from your doctor. These drugs will upset your body’s natural bacterial and chemical balance so your body becomes a better host for the fungus.

When you’re continually getting prescriptions for your chronic yeast infections your health will deteriorate badly. You can start suffering from…

  • Aching muscles and joints
  • Foggy brain
  • Concentration problems
  • Digestive problems
  • Athletes foot
  • Nail fungus
  • Mood swings
  • Depression
  • And many more symptoms that will not seem related to a yeast infection

What your doctor will do next

When you start suffering from all these different symptoms your doctor will start prescribing all kinds of drugs to deal with all the individual symptoms because doctors have no way of curing “whole body” yeast overgrowth. While you’re taking all these drugs your yeast infecti9on will only get worse because all the drugs will upset the chemical and bacterial balance in your body even more than it has been already.

To make it worse, while your continually suffering from yeast infections your doctor will probably tell you that is something that you’re going to suffer from for the rest of your life because he/she knows there’s nothing they can give you to cure a yeast infection.

I hope this has put you off

I hope this has put you off taking any anti fungal drugs when you’re not suffering from a yeast infection. These drugs don’t in any way prevent a yeast infection, they cause yeast infections.

More women now suffer from resistant yeast infections because of the ease in which they can purchase anti fungal creams and pills.

Always see your doctor first

If you suspect you have a Vaginal infection always see your doctor before you start using any type of treatment. If you get your self diagnosis wrong you’ll only make the infection you have got a lot worse.

Do OTC Yeast Cream Cure All Yeast Infections

It would be great if OTC yeast infection treatments cured all yeast infections, but this isn’t the case for a lot of women. Doctors and drug manufacturers would lead you to believe that they cure all infections just so you go back to use something else when the last one didn’t work because this is how they earn their profits.

Doctors will even tell you that a chronic yeast infection are something you have to live with just so you keep going back for prescription, but no one has to live with yeast infections for the rest of their lives, and everyone who is healthy can prevent a yeast infection from ever happening. If an OTC doesn’t cure all infections, and it doesn’t cure your infection then their is still a way to cure yourself.

When OTC yeast creams don’t work

One reason why an OTC yeast cream won’t cure your vaginal yeast infection is because the cause of the infection isn’t in your vagina. An OTC cream can only kill the fungus in your vagina, it cannot in any way deal with the reason why you have fungus in your vagina. If something in your body is allowing the harmless Candia yeast to mutate into a fungus it doesn’t matter how many times you kill it, the yeast will always mutate when you stop your treatment.

Underlying illness

Yeast infections can be caused by an underlying illness or health condition. The most common health condition that causes yeast infections is Diabetes. This is because Diabetes raises blood sugar levels, and the Candida yeast loves sugar in any form.

Drugs and medicines

Certain drugs and medicines cause the Candida yeast to mutate in the human body with the most common being antibiotics, steroids and the birth control pill.

If any of the above has caused your yeast infection than you have to come off of your medication or talk to your doctor about changing it or you will suffer from chronic infections until you do. If you continue to treat the infection with an OTC cream all that will happen is the fungus will become resistant, and then you’ll be prescribed more powerful drugs that the fungus will eventually become resistant to.

Find the cause of your infection

Once you have discovered the cause of your infection you will then be able to cure your infection naturally without the need of any drugs or anti fungal creams. Fungus only becomes resistant to these, and a healthy human body can prevent a yeast infection without the need of anything else.
