Candida Symptoms

Candida is yeast that naturally lives in the human body yet if it overgrows; it causes some disturbing Candida symptoms. Candida Albicans exists well with other microorganisms in the body, as it is useful to the body in many ways. It is harmless but it can become problematic if the balance of bacteria in the body is compromised. When the bacteria’s balance is interfered with, the yeast grows rapidly and it takes over the healthy microorganisms in the body thus reducing the immunity of the body. Candida is found in the digestive tract, genitals, mouth and throat. It is spread to other organs of the body when it penetrates the intestinal tract to enter the bloodstream. As the blood is pumped to the other body parts, it carries with them the Candida yeast, which is dangerous because it emits many toxins in the body, which in turn makes many people allergic to the yeast.

 Candida Symptoms – Systemic Yeast Infections

Some of the Candida symptoms in the body are: headaches and migraines, excessive fatigue all the time, lack of concentration at work or anywhere, excessive alcohol craving, which may lead to alcoholism, vaginitis (a vaginal yeast infection), and an itching in the rectum. Other Candida infection symptoms are stomach upsets like constipation, abdominal gas and bloating, indigestion and a reflux of acidity in the digestive system (heartburn). Other Candida symptoms are weakness in the muscles, low sex drive because with the itchiness, one is sensitive to touch and any touch in the affected area one becomes irritable. The fact that sex comes from the brain, and in this case the brain is affected, there is little one can do. There is sinus inflammation, pre-menstrual syndrome and dizziness.

Early Candida Symptoms

Sinus inflammation occurs when the cells that line the sinuses are damaged, the sinuses lining thickens due to overgrowth of the Candida yeast and it obstructs the nasal passage. This obstruction disrupts the bacterial removal process, which normally takes place in the nasal passage, the bacteria begin to multiply rapidly, and they invade the lining of the sinus. The infections can cause headaches and pressure in the eyes or on one side of the head. People with sinus infection get coughs, sore throat, bad breath, fever and more Candida symptoms.

 Candida Causes and Candida Symptoms

Other Candida symptoms are white blisters in the tongue and white filmy tongue. There is sensitivity to some foods, chemicals with strong pungent smells and strong smells like sprays and perfumes. This occurs in people with sinus inflammations. Due to infection of the throat, one can experience difficult in swallowing and this may make it difficult to eat or drink well.


Candida symptoms may include a burning sensation or pain in the affected area especially in the vagina when passing urine. There is a yellow or a thick whitish discharge from the vagina and when it is in an advanced stage, it smells bad. Candida symptoms in babies occur as a thrush in the tongue. It is characterized by a white coating on the tongue. Sometimes it is mistaken for breast milk or formula sticking on the babies tongue. When wiped off, it may result to soreness and this may make it difficult for babies to eat. The soreness of the tongues makes the baby irritable crying all the time. For babies, the thrush occurs because the baby’s immune system is not very strong and so it cannot control the growth of the bacteria. The thrush also happens to older people because their immune system weakens as age catches up with them.


Other Candida symptoms include dizziness, poor memory, eczema, acne, earaches and athlete’s foot. Dizziness and poor memory occur because the brain is the most affected part of the body. Since it controls all the activities of the body, transmission of commands to the other parts of the body is impaired and some of results are poor memory and dizziness. With athlete’s foot, there is a rash that occurs on the inside part of the foot, which may spread to the other part of the foot. The skin between the toes looks red and it may have a bad smell. The skin in the affected area may start peeling leaving the skin raw in the affected area. If you show that you have Candida symptoms, try not to scratch the affected area to avoid the peeling.
