Brief Answer:
maintainance of genital hygiene is important

Detailed Answer:
Hello dear,welcome to healthcare magic.I understand your concern.
I am happy to know that you take care to maintain proper genital hygiene.
Cause of yeast infections are low immunity status,pregnancy,those on steroids,oral contraception pills,diabetes,stress etc.
It can also be due to some allergies.
It presents with profuse curdy discharge and intense pruritis.
Cure for yeast infections include candid v6 ointment or candid v6 Vaginal tablets or oral fluconazole 150 mg tablet single dose.
In recurrent candidiasis 3 doses of fluconazole for girl and 1 dose of fluconazole for the partner.
Improve the immunity status by eating fresh fruits rich in vitamin C like citrus family fruits to prevent candidiasis infection.
Also avoid stress as it also might be one of the causes for itching and it decreases the immunity status predisposing to fungal ie.,yeast infections.
Continue your sebamed genital cleaner.And relax and avoid stress which is very important .
Hope this satisfies your query.

Brief Answer:
self examination of breast is helpful

Detailed Answer:
Hello dear,I got your query.I understand your concern.
It is good that you are pretty aware of self examination of breast
In my opinion breast self examination can be done from 20 years of age onwards.
It can be done every month after periods.(As the breast might be tender before periods).
It is done in lying down position for better finding of any lump if present.
It is done by palmar aspect of middle 3 fingers.
Right breast is palpated by left hand keeping the right hand underneath the head and viceversa..
Self examination of breast might help in early detection of any abnormalities if present.
Hope this satisfies your query.
Feel free to discuss furthur.
Best regards...Dr srilatha
