  • Shower thoroughly after activities that produce sweat and dry areas prone to fungal infection.
  • In infants, keep the diaper area dry.
  • Cotton underwear may help prevent excessive moisture for women who are prone to vaginal infections.
  • Try to maintain the proper fungus/bacteria balance in the vagina by eating yogurt or taking acidophilus capsules.
