Can bathing suits cause yeast infection?

Good day, Eric Bakker, naturopath, author of Candida Crusher. Another frequently asked question.

Can I get a yeast infection from trying on bathing suits at my department store?

That’s quite an amazing question to ask. Why would you think you would get a yeast infection doing this? You shouldn’t really get a yeast infection doing this kind of thing. And again, if in doubt, make sure, obviously, that you take proper precautions. I take it that you’re going to try on a bathing suit wearing at least some cotton underclothing. It’s more hygienic doing that. Probably not a good idea just to put on straight bikini or clothing on your body without something underneath that.

You shouldn’t really get a yeast infection by doing this, but it’s not really hygienic thing perhaps to do either without considering the thin cotton undergarment. The way to answer that question is I think you’ll be okay. You take proper precautions and you should be fine.

There’s another video I did regarding catching. I think you should not worry about catching disease rather than building up your health, increasing resistance. And by doing that you won’t be susceptible to catching anything at all. All right?

I hope that answers your question. Thanks for the question.
