A yeast infection, also known as candidiasis, can vary in duration depending on the severity of the infection and the treatment used. In general, a mild yeast infection can last for a few days to a week, while a more severe infection may take longer to clear up.
If you have a yeast infection, it’s important to see a healthcare provider to confirm the diagnosis and receive appropriate treatment. Treatment usually involves antifungal medication, which may be in the form of creams, ointments, or oral medication. Following the recommended treatment regimen as directed by your healthcare provider can help clear up the infection faster and reduce the risk of recurrent infections.
