About Preparation H

Preparation H contains yeast. Will I get a yeast infection if I use the product?

No. The live yeast cell derivative (LYCD) in the product is an extract of Brewer's yeast. LYCD does not contain any live yeast cells. Therefore, there is no association with the development of yeast infections following the use of Preparation H.
