How Does What I Wear Affect my Yeast Infection?

Candida albicans the fungus that causes yeast infections in the majority of cases is like all other fungi, it likes warm, moist and dark areas to grow in. Therefore, though you can get a yeast infection anywhere on your body, it is more common in places that meet that criteria, for example the vagina, under folds of skin in the obese, the mouth. What you wear can create a perfect breeding ground for the fungus, or you can choose clothing that helps prevent those conditions and therefore prevent an infection. Here are some pointers on how what you wear affects a yeast infection.

  • Underwear – cotton is a material that allows the skin to breathe, it lets in air which in turn keeps the area more dry. If you wear synthetic material underwear it traps the region and it becomes more moist. Similarly tight underwear makes you warmer and damper as opposed to loose underwear that allows the air to circulate.
  • Tight pants/nylons – the same problem as tight underwear, keeps you moist and perfect for a yeast infection. Loose pants, shorts, skirts allow the air in.
  • Damp clothing – hanging out in you sweaty workout pants after exercising or sunbathing in a damp swim costume after a swim creates the opportunity for the fungus to overgrow. Change out of wet or damp clothing as soon as you can.
