I think "yeast infection" must be a broader term in South Africa than it is in America. It is a common diagnosis for both girls and guys. Yes. Guys. One specific friend of mine (a-hem) had a yeast infection for months... on his leg.
And just the other day our bug-in-the-ear intern found out she has one, too... in her ear. After Niel's amazing medical procedure (he could so play a doctor on Grey's Anatomy... my McNiely), we took her to the doctor to have her ear looked at. Yep. Yeast infection, caused by the demon moth.
I don't understand all this yeast business.
