Candida is the more widely used term for Candidiasis, a fungus known as Candida Albicans. Candida resides naturally in all of us, in fact, it lives in the intestinal tract where it works beneficially for the body. But when we develop an overabundance of this fungus, the resulting imbalance produces the symptoms we know as “yeast infection".
Signs of yeast infection can closely mimic other conditions, so even if any of the Candida yeast infection signs listed below are being experienced, it is always best to allow a medical professional to examine you and determine if the signs of yeast infection you have are really indicative of this type of illness.
Yeast infections are most common in the mucous membranes, such as the nose and vagina, but it also shows itself in the dark, moist areas of the body such as the groin and anal areas, or feet. It is usually quite harmless to our general health, though very annoying - but if left unattended, can, like any imbalance, become quite a serious health issue.
Here are some of the signs of a yeast infection. It is important to remember, that any one of these signs on their own, could also indicate another type of problem, such as allergy, chafing, bacterial or viral infection. However, as more of these signs appear together, the more likely it is that they are a sign of a yeast infection.
- intense itching that feels “so good" when you scratch it
- rash in the affected area - burning sensation
- vaginal discharge
- pain during *** intercourse
- swelling of the vulva
- redness around the affected area
- frequent, painful urination
The most common sign of a yeast infection in women is a vaginal discharge, which often appears as a thin watery or milky substance. It can be egg white in appearance, firm and yellowish or it can have a cottage cheese-like texture.
There is often an odour associated with it. The odour tends to be acrid and pungent, but sometimes it can be odourless.
How to Eliminate Signs of a Yeast Infection
Wear loose fitting clothing
Use underwear that absorbs moisture
Avoid feminine deodorant sprays
Thoroughly dry the vaginal area after showering
Use a latex condom, if you're intimate with someone
Avoid perfumed douches
Antibiotics can cause a candida imbalance, so be careful if you need them.
Pay attention to your diet - eat well balanced meals
Avoid stress - too much can cause yeast infection
Candida yeast infections can improve within days with the correct treatment. But if you do not treat a yeast infection properly it may become very dangerous. Some companies offer over-the-counter oral drugs which they promise will bring a end to your yeast infections but in reality can make the infection worse or only appear to go away, while at the same time, altering the acidity levels of the affected areas and lead to another round of signs of yeast infection. Although some products may temporarily cover the symptoms, most oral pills do not destroy the infection at it's source.
Would you like to eradicate all signs of a yeast infection forever, without those cover-up pharmaceuticals? You can do it naturally, powerfully, permanently.
