Have you ever asked, “Can I swim with a yeast infection?” I know you’re worried about two things. One if it will contaminate the pond and infect everyone. Second, if it will make the infection worse. This article provides you with the information you need and hopefully helps you treat a yeast infection.
Almost everyone will suffer from a yeast infection at some point in their lives. The most common type is a vaginal infection, and most women will have to deal with this at some point in their lives.
Although the infection itself does not pose a serious threat to your health, it must be dealt with immediately as the condition can be very annoying and frustrating.
So back to your question, “Can I swim with a yeast infection?” And the answer is yes you can. But keep in mind; Swimming is not recommended if you have a yeast infection. Yeast infections are caused by a type of fungus called Candida, and they thrive in moist, warm areas. So swimming, in the sense that you need to get wet, may aggravate the infection if you don’t do the necessary things that you need to do after swimming.
First, avoid hot pools, as that would be a very bad idea because Candida loves warm, moist areas. Pool water contains chlorine and chemicals, so it is important to rinse it or take a shower with fresh water. Put on dry clothes as soon as you can and make sure the affected area is clean and dry. Again, swimming with a yeast infection is not recommended, but if you absolutely must, please do these things after you’re done.
Most people with yeast infections will ask the same question again, “Can I swim with a yeast infection?” They are worried about infecting others when swimming. In general, this is not true. As you can see, there are a lot of chemicals in the pool to make sure that any infection problem you have will not be passed on to others. So it is completely safe for others to swim with you.
