    • Overview

      According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), nearly 75% of all adult women have had at least one yeast infection in their lifetime. Many women find themselves in pharmacies seeking self- treatment for the unbearable symptoms associated with vaginal yeast infections. For community practitioners it's important to know when to refer patients and when it's appropriate to recommend self-management of vaginal yeast infections. Pharmacists should be up to date on the products available for patients to use in self-management of this condition, especially with self-testing products available on the market. This program will address these areas as well as preventative and nonpharmacologic treatments used in the management of vaginal yeast infections.
