Until recently, mothers have had to rely on adult over-the-counter antifungal creams to treat their babies’ cases of diaper rash complicated by yeast infections. For the first time, a prescription product-Vusion™ (0.25% miconazole nitrate, 15% zinc oxide and 81.35% white petrolatum) Ointment-is available and is indicated and specifically formulated for the treatment of this condition, called diaper dermatitis complicated by candidiasis (DDCC), in infants 4 weeks and older. Confirmation of DDCC is determined by microscopic evaluation for presence of pseudohyphae or budding yeast.
DDCC is a highly prevalent rash in infants that can cause great discomfort and distress. Typically, DDCC infections are characterized by a rash of bright red patches with irregular, raised borders and white scales on the surface. The main patches are often surrounded by smaller patches and painful sores or blisters.
Infants often get DDCC when their diapers chafe and break the surface of the skin, making it easier for microorganisms such as yeast to invade the skin. Other risk factors for DDCC include diarrhea, prolonged diaper rash, skin hygiene and the recent use of broad-spectrum antibiotics. The condition can occur anytime of year, but DDCC is often triggered in the winter months when the use of antibiotics commonly prescribed for illnesses such as ear infections is at its peak.
Treatment options have included the use of antifungal products, steroids and combination products that are not specifically approved for the treatment of DDCC or for use on infants.
“With Vusion™ Ointment now approved for the U.S. market, pediatricians and dermatologists can prescribe a treatment specifically meant for the condition that it was designed for and that is well tolerated for use on infants,” said Dr. Mary Spraker, a pediatric dermatologist and associate professor in Emory University’s Department of Dermatology, who assisted in the design of a Phase 3 clinical trial of the product. “Doctors are no longer reliant on prescribing antifungal agents intended for adults that have not been tested on children with DDCC.”
Vusion™ Ointment was developed by Barrier Therapeutics, a Princeton, N.J.-based pharmaceutical company focused on the discovery, development and commercialization of products in the field of dermatology.
Sinus infections that have graduated to the chronic stage deserve the honor of being treated with the right type of antibiotic. Sinus problems may be caused by a number of different factors which include environmental and food allergies (allergic sinusitis), chronic sinus infection, and chronic colds. This problem is further aggravated if the sinuses get plugged trapping mucus inside which serve as breeding grounds for harmful microorganisms like bacteria. The usual symptoms of acute sinusitis are nasal congestion, green nasal phlegm, facial/dental pain, eye pain, headache, and a cough at night. Some may also complain of fever, feeling ill, bad breath and a sore throat. There abound a great may antibiotics designed for every illness known to man. With this multitude, you may sometimes get the wrong type and this may cause your infection grow from chronic to more chronic or “chronicer” if there is such a word. Sinus infections have different causes and determining this cause may not be that easy but it is required for the physician to prescribe the right kind of antibiotic. If you have been given an antibiotic and your sinusitis has not responded to it, then you might have been given the wrong antibiotic. You may choose to ask another doctor’s opinion or try another kind of treatment. A danger in taking the wrong antibiotic is developing resistance to this medicine. Antibiotic resistance has grown to be a major health threat making it very important to be accurately diagnosed by a competent doctor. It may sometimes be difficult for physicians to give the best prescription for your condition so it would be best to give them all the help they can get. You have much at stake and giving Doc all he needs to know will improve chances of you being given the right antibiotic.
A yeast infection can clear up eventually, but even so, the waiting time is extended and accompanied by all the usual pain. Most of the time, a yeast infection will cease when a woman’s period begins, because the blood causes much of the yeast to die.
Can I Become Infertile from an Untreated Yeast Infection?
No, the yeast infection has nothing to do with fertility. It is a fungal infection that affects tissues, but has no impact on the reproductive system. You cannot get cervical cancer from a yeast infection, either. These ideas are completely false, so don’t spend any time worrying about them.
What Will Happen If I Leave My Yeast Infection Untreated?
You will have a much longer and more painful experience than if you had treated the infection. There are not very many occurrences of serious health issues arising from an untreated yeast infection. Some women who have repeated yeast infections suffer from this condition due to a pre-existing medical problem that is causing the infections to take place. If you have yeast infections very often (three times or more in one year), you would be wise to set an appointment with your doctor. It may be that just a few simple changes or a medication can help your life return to normal.
In some cases, an untreated yeast infection can lead to a blood condition known as sepsis, in which the blood is contaminated with bacteria. The bacteria then travel throughout the entire body; in effect, this is a form of blood poisoning. Although yeast infections rarely every lead to this disease, you should at least consider the possibility when deciding whether or not to treat your infection. It’s really not worth the risk, especially when treatment is so simple and inexpensive. If you are unable to afford prescription medications, there are plenty of natural remedies that are proven to help fight the yeast infection.
If you find that you develop yeast infections three times or more each year, you may have a problem known as vulvovaginal candidiasis. This simply means that you are prone to have yeast infections and will probably continue to have them unless you seek medical assistance. Your doctor or a gynecologist can help you treat these recurring yeast infections.
So Should I Treat My Yeast Infection?
Yes, of course! There is no reason to let the yeast infection “run its course”, although it will likely die naturally during your next period. You have a choice between mainstream medicine, which will consist of prescription or over-the-counter medicines, and natural medicine, which will likely call for home remedies. Either way is effective. If you choose to make use of home remedies, make sure you do your research first. Some folk remedies are perfectly safe if they are applied in the correct manner, but can be quite hazardous if the user is unaware of the right way to use them.
