Since a rose by any other name
is still a rose, it stands to reason that a yeast infection by
any other name is still a yeast infection, or rather, a yeast
allergy. You could take this to mean that you have an allergy
to all things yeast and that you can’t have it any form, but in
this instance yeast allergy is aimed more towards internal
