How long can a yeast infection last?


Yeast infections can vary in duration depending on various factors such as the severity of the infection, the type of yeast causing the infection, and individual factors such as immune system health and personal hygiene habits.

In general, mild to moderate yeast infections may last a few days to a week or two with proper treatment, such as over-the-counter antifungal medications. However, more severe or chronic yeast infections may persist for several weeks or even months and may require prescription antifungal medication or additional medical interventions.

It’s important to note that recurrent yeast infections may indicate an underlying health issue and should be evaluated by a healthcare professional. Additionally, practicing good hygiene habits and avoiding certain irritants or activities that can disrupt the natural balance of bacteria and yeast in the body may help prevent future yeast infections.
