You may wonder what are the symptoms of yeast infection? The candida infection occurs mostly due to overgrow of the yeast in your body and sometimes happen without any symptoms.
The yeast infection is not caused by a virus or bacteria. It occurs because of a fungus called yeast which spread into your body in certain conditions. Sugar is the main factor of chronic yeast infection. Many diabetics suffer from systemic yeast. Craving for sweets may be a symptom of it. The sugar feeds the yeast, so a diet on low sugar is required.
Other important cause of candida infection is taking of antibiotics or/and contraceptive pills. Antibiotics are a sure way for developing candida infections. Try to avoid taking antibiotics if you don’t really need them. For example, if you suffer from acne, it is better to use other kinds of treatment.
The symptoms of candida may vary from person to person, but the most common are the burning during urination, itchiness around vaginal area, sometimes a white discharge which looks like cottage cheese, and pain during intercourse. These are the common symptoms of vaginal yeast infection.
The male yeast infection symptoms are present also. Usually they manifest up to the penis area and incur itchiness, soreness, white patches and sometimes a white discharge. In a more complex yeast condition, the men may experience intestinal problems, memory loss, prostate problems, acne, food allergies, etc.
Another form of infection with yeast fungus is the thrush infection. This occurs mainly in chronic state, and often after an antibiotic treatment. The main sign of thrush is a white layer in the mouth with a red swollen skin.
