About Yeast Infection

Yeast Infection Yeast infection is a condition that occurs once new yeast has been introduced in a naturally occurring yeast area, like the vagina. The condition can also occur when there is a higher yeast count in areas within the body that secrete yeast, for instance, the skin or other moist places. The most common type of yeast infection is one affecting women, known as vaginal yeast infection. This occurs when there is an increase in Candida Albicans, which is the fungus that causes this condition. The other common type of yeast infection is penis yeast infection, which occurs in men.



Yeast Infection treatment

Note that the treatment of these two similar conditions is somewhat different. In the past, yeast was mostly associated with the reproductive organs in both males and females, but today, the condition has further been connected with bladder infections, and infections of the digestive tract as well as the mouth. There are different causes of yeast infection; the causal factors differ depending on the area of infection as well as the person affected. For instance, vaginal yeast infection in women is much different from penis yeast infection in men. The introduction of more yeast in the vagina in women leads to increased chances of contracting this kind of infection.

In the vagina, yeast occurs naturally but its tendency to increase is normally suppressed by other naturally occurring bacteria. However, the situation can arise that the protective bacteria can no longer suppress it, which leads to a higher chance of a yeast infection. One reason for this is that the protective bacteria could have been weakened by intake of various antibiotics. Other factors, such as pregnancy, can also trigger increased yeast. It has been shown that three out of four women will have suffered or will suffer from yeast infection at some time during their lives.

Women using oral contraceptives, and people suffering from diabetes mellitus will also be prone to yeast infection. Candida Albicans is a fungus that exists naturally within the vagina and interfering with its normal existence is indeed the main cause of increased yeast. How can a victim know if he or she  suffers from a yeast infection? There are different types of symptoms and these vary depending on the person affected. For instance, in women, there will be increased itching around the vulva, as well as a burning sensation in the same area. If the victim has noticed cumulative pain during intercourse, this may also be a sign that there could be increased yeast.

In many cases, sufferers may not notice the symptoms immediately. However, unusual vaginal discharge should ring alarm bells. Such vaginal discharge can have different characteristics; in some cases the discharge may be colourless and thin, whereas in other cases it may be somewhat white or yellowish in colour, and thick with a cheese-like texture.

It should be noted, however, that vaginal discharge isn’t the first symptom to look for.  This is because not all patients have this as a symptom and thus by focusing on other symptoms there is a better chance of identifying a yeast infection.

Yeast Infection micro imageIt is also important to understand that the physical appearance of any vaginal discharge cannot be the final proof of a yeast infection.  This is because other conditions, such as Chlamydia, syphilis and gonorrhoea, could also exhibit the same symptoms. Due to this fact, the examining doctor must use a microscope in order to reveal whether the individual is suffering from yeast infection or not.  One of the most contradicting symptoms in yeast infection relates to causal factors. When an individual has not been examined by a doctor, the symptoms of the infection can be confused with those caused by a sexually transmitted disease.

Although yeast infection isn’t a sexually transmitted condition, men who come into contact with infected partners could develop symptoms like itching or a rash around the penis area. It is therefore recommended that protective sex be practised in such situations. Treatment for yeast infection depends on the causes.  There are home remedies and over- the-counter prescriptions that can be used to treat common symptoms, but in most cases a doctor will prescribe antibiotics such as Miconazole or Butoconazole. When prescribed these, it is recommended that the patient reads the instructions and uses the medicine only as directed.

Thrush Symptoms in Adults and Babies

Candida symptoms will happen in adults, babies, men and women alike. Therefore, it is important that you know what to look out for. Sometimes, babies and adults show similar symptoms and sometimes they do not. Therefore, the best thing that you can do if you are a parent is to find as much information as possible about this. Information is power and therefore the more you know, the earlier that you can be able to arrest the situation even in your baby. The Candida   infection can cause the baby a lot of discomfort. Therefore, you need to arrest the situation early enough. The good thing is that this is   easy to do if you are on the lookout for the well-being of your baby.

 Thrush Symptoms in Babies

Thrush Symptoms in BabiesIf the baby refuses to eat, then you should look out for the Candida symptoms manifested in the mouth. Also called oral thrush, a filmy paste on the tongue usually indicates Candida overgrowth and if you scrap it off, it leads to sores and blisters on the tongue. This will cause the baby to refuse to suckle or feed. If the baby keeps crying, then it means he is sick. Watch out for such symptoms.


Candida infections occur where the conditions are most favorable for its proliferation. For example, the conditions that make this suitable are moisture and warmth. The Candida Albicans exists in small quantities in the gut, mouth and in the vagina. Therefore, it is best to check out for the Candida symptoms there. For babies, yeast overgrowth is also bound to appear as nappy rash. This will be reddish, sore and tender to the touch. If you see such, you should take the baby for proper diagnosis before you administer any treatment. It is important that you do this early enough to save the baby a lot of pain and discomfiture.

 Thrush Symptoms in Adults

Thrush in babies is less serious as it is in adults. It is easy to treat and it goes away for good. If you take the baby to the doctor, the doctor n will prescribe an antifungal or antibiotic medication for the baby and this will take care of the Candida symptoms in the baby. On the other hand, you can administer the natural cure at home by using apple cider vinegar and salt, yoghurt and others, but make sure that you give in small quantities. Candida infection is very easy to treat if you have the right information.


Adults will exhibit very many Candida symptoms when they have the yeast infection. However, they should be easy to treat once one has gone for the official diagnosis. It is very important that even after you have mastered the symptoms, you should not embark on taking medication without going for official diagnosis. You should also know that different people will exhibit different symptoms because Candida infection has more than 100 symptoms. For example, one person may experience fatigue, chills, fever and allergies while another sufferer will experience itching in the groin, sore throat, sinus infections and many more. Therefore, you must not look out for any universal Candida symptoms because they aren’t there. If you notice something out of the ordinary, then it would be better to go for diagnosis immediately.

 Thrush (Candida) Symptoms

Even though there are many Candida symptoms, a few of them are telltale, meaning that they are more likely to appear in anyone. For example, the oral thrush is likely to occur in all sufferers even in babies. A white filmy paste on the tongue characterizes it and if this is scrapped off, it leaves blisters and sores. Usually, this infection will have spread to the throat too, thus making swallowing very painful. If you experience foggy brain sessions, unexplained fatigue and mood swings, then there is no doubt that you have Candida Albicans overgrowth.


Some symptoms are unique to women only and others to men. For example, vaginal thrush can only occur in women while penile thrush occurs in men. One thing that the two have in common is that they are very uncomfortable and painful. For first time sufferer, the Candida symptoms can be very confusing because they appear the same as those caused by other diseases. Note that a clinical diagnosis is very important to establish that you indeed have yeast syndrome. After that, you can go for natural Candida treatment.

Candida Symptoms and Signs in Men and Women

Candida symptoms occur when one has Candida infection. Candida Albicans is a type of yeast that lives harmoniously with the other microorganism in the body. It is found in the skin, the digestive system, the throat and in the reproductive system especially the vagina and cervix in women. For men, it is found in the foreskin of the penis, the prostate gland and also the urethra. When there is contact of fluids from both male and female and one of them is infected with the Candida yeast, the clean one becomes infected.

 Candida Symptoms In Men

Candida Symptoms In MenSome of the Candida symptoms in men are; pain in the groin, pain while urinating and difficulty when urinating. This is caused by prostatitis, an inflammation of the prostate gland, which is found in the productive system in men. When the yeast grows more rapidly than it should, the immune system is compromised and its functioning is altered thus allowing the bacteria in the prostate to cause inflammations. The toxins emitted by the yeast also cause the inflammation.


Fungal infections that keep on occurring may be because of Candida infections such as athlete’s foot and jock itch. Jock itch occurs on the both sides of the groin where there is folding and it spreads into the inner thigh. The rash will also occur on the scrotum and spread to the penis. When that happens, there is need to worry because those are definite Candida symptoms.  Athlete’s foot occurs in the legs in between the toes and may spread to the sore of the foot. The rash may also spread on the upper skin of the toes and due to the itching and the urge to scratch, the skin becomes raw.


The overgrowth of the fungi that causes Candida is rampant in these two areas because they have the conditions that favour their growth. These parts are moist because of constant sweating. They are also warm either because they are either covered in socks for the feet and or because the groin area is hairy. That is why it is always advisable to keep the groin area shaved and make sure your feet are properly dried before wearing socks. It is also advisable to air one’s feet as often as possible. Athlete’s foot rarely happens to women because their feet are rarely covered. Impotence may also be one of the Candida symptoms, but this occurs after a long time of untreated Candida yeast infections. The overgrowth of yeast in the urethra leaves it constricted and this makes it impossible for the passage of semen leading to impotence, which is inability to get and maintain an erection.


Inflammation of the penis is also one of Candida symptoms. The penis becomes itchy, sore, will become discoloured and eventually swell. When having sex there is painful ejaculation because the urethra is constricted and there is inhibited flow of semen.


Another one of Candida symptoms is thrush in the mouth, which may spread to the oesophagus when swallowing food. When this happens, the yeast is spread to the small intestines where there are small holes for food absorption to the blood stream and it can spread to the other body organs through the blood stream. Skin rash on the other parts of the body like the armpits, behind the ears and the cleft between the buttocks should be a cause to worry because it can be one of the Candida infection symptoms.

 Candida Symptoms In Women

Candida Symptoms In WomenFor women, Candida symptoms are evident in the mouth, the vagina and the skin under the breasts because they are warm and moist and they are not exposed to the air. Candida infection in the under arms and the pubic area is not very common to women because they keep these areas shaved and clean.


Infection in the vagina is characterized with pain during urination, when inserting tampons and when having sex. The vagina is itchy and there is a whitish, yellow or creamy yellow discharge, which smells bad at times. The yellow or cream yellow discharge may be pus from the inflamed walls of the cervix. As we said earlier, the yeast produces toxins, and they are the ones responsible for itching and inflammation.


Another Candida infection symptom is a fungal infection of the finger and toenails. The nail bed thickens and then turns into a greyish colour. The nail eventually falls off the finger. Other Candida symptoms are oral thrush, a formation of white substance cheeks lining and or on the top or sides of the tongue, which may lead to bad breath.

Candida Causes and Risk Factors

There are many Candida symptoms to watch out for. Candida infections are brought about by the overgrowth of Candida yeast in the body because of microorganisms balance disruption in the body. This may be because of poor nutrition leading to a weakened immune system. The choice of food may be responsible for overgrowth of the yeast because some foods favor the reproduction of the yeast. The food feeds the already existing yeast, which reproduces faster leading to overgrowth. Stress can also be a cause of Candida. Stress brings about loss of appetite. The affected person won’t eat properly and in turn the immune system becomes weak such that it can’t control the overgrowth of yeast. People with diabetes, cancer and AIDS are easy target of Candida because the immune system is already weak because of radiation and constant use of chemotherapy for treatment.

Yeast Infection Causes, Symptoms, Treatments

Candida Causes and Candida SymptomsWhen Candida symptoms occur, there is need to treat them and one way of treating them is use of antibiotics. When these antibiotics are used for long, they kill even the ‘good’ microorganisms, which are responsible for a healthy immune system and balanced alkalinity levels in the stomach that aids in proper digestion. When the ‘good’ microorganisms are killed, an imbalance is created and Candida takes advantage of the situation leading to their overgrowth. This overgrowth leads to release of toxins, which when released to the blood stream becomes problematic and can result to heart burns, inflammations and other troubles which  are some of the Candida symptoms to watch out for.


Some other drugs that people take for a long time like birth control pills and other birth control methods can lead to overgrowth of Candida. Use of steroids, headache medications and hormone supplements can also lead to Candida overgrowth. Most drugs from the pharmacy are acidic meaning that they raise acidity of the body thus killing even the ‘good’ microorganisms and thus cause the imbalance. Candida symptoms are evident sooner or later after the use of these medications.

 Candida Causes and Candida Symptoms

As noted above, diet is a major cause of Candida infections because some foods are responsible for overgrowth of the Candida yeast. Some foods raise the alkalinity in the body tissues and this creates a good environment for their overgrowth. These foods are coffee, meat, processed foods that contain many artificial sugars. Alcohol is also a major contributor of high acidity in the body. Processed foods with many artificial sugars can cause diabetes thus leading to a weak immune system, which in turn leads to the exhibition of many Candida symptoms.  A diet low in alkalinity inhibits the growth of Candida and this is what one should strive to eat to counteract the effect of acidity in the tissues.


Candida Symptoms Candida can also be caused by unhygienic conditions and one of the Candida symptoms is a rash on the affected area. For example, the pubic areas like the groin and the armpits should always be kept clean, that is, they should be shaved all the time. When these areas are moist and warm, they create a good environment for the growth of the Candida yeast. The folded and the hidden areas of the body should be cleaned thoroughly. These include the area below the breasts for those with big breasts, behind the ears, in between the toes and below the penis and the scrotum. Make sure that these areas are clean and dry to reduce the Candida infections.


Adult Candida Causes

When having sex it is advisable to use protection because as far as Candida is not a Sexually Transmitted Disease, the Candida yeast can be passed from the penis’ fore skin to the vagina or from the vagina to the penis’ foreskin. If this happens, Candida symptoms are seen in both the partners where the vagina becomes itchy, a whitish cottage cheese like discharge is formed in the insides of the vagina walls and when scrapped off, there is pain and they may start bleeding. There may be a whitish discharge from the vagina and this should call for a medical checkup. For men, the penis becomes itchy, gets sores and may eventually lead to inflammation. The inflammation may go up to the urethra and this should be checked immediately as it may lead to impotence.


As soon as any of the Candida symptoms is evident in the body, a visit to the doctor should be the first thing that the sufferer does for proper diagnosis.

Yeast Syndrome Dangers Causes and Treatment

It is important to know all that you can about Candida treatment. Candida Albicans is harmless really and sits on the skin, in the mouth, in the gastro intestinal tract and in the vagina. Everybody carries it around with them but the problem occurs when there is over multiplication of this yeast. In such cases, it cause candidiasis which, though not a life threatening condition, it may cause you great discomfort and therefore you do not want to let it out of hand. You need to know all you can about the syndromes of yeast infection, how to prevent it from happening and if you already have candidiasis, how to choose the best form of Candida treatment.


What is yeast syndrome?

Yeast Syndrome Dangers Causes and TreatmentYou will never know when to go for Candida treatment unless you know that you have yeast infection. Yeast syndrome is the indications, or the symptoms that you have yeast overgrowth. Note that this condition is not life threatening but that does not mean that it will go away on its own. Treatment has to be sought and administered just right so that you can live a normal life. It does not matter whether you are a man or a woman because we all carry Candida Albicans with us and therefore any condition may trigger their multiplication. If you do not seek treatment, then you may have to stand long-term discomfort.


What are the yeast syndrome dangers?

Now, most people suffer yeast overgrowth, especially on their genitals and because that is an embarrassing situation, they do not want to seek Candida treatment. Many hope that the condition will just go away on its own but unfortunately, it does not. Therefore, more discomfort sets in with time and this discomfort may be long term. If you suspect that you have yeast overgrowth, the smart thing is to seek diagnosis and prognosis immediately.


For working women, it can be very disconcerting sitting in the boardroom with an itchy vulva that is screaming to be scratched.  Because yeast overgrowth also causes tiny blisters in the vulva, when you scratch, the blisters become sore and even urination becomes hard because any time the urine touches the blisters. Of course, when your vagina is inflamed sex, has to be ruled out because it would be so painful. There are many more discomforts and limitations that you suffer when you have candidiasis and that are why you should seek Candida treatment as soon as the first symptoms sets in.


Causes of yeast syndrome

Yeast syndrome is a collective name of the many symptoms you may experience when you have yeast overgrowth. There are many causes of this condition but perhaps the most common one is that this is an opportunistic infection that pounces on you when your immune system is weak, for example, when you have HIV, you will be more susceptible to yeast overgrowth than a healthy person. If you suffer other conditions like diabetes, are taking cancer treatment and so forth, you will most likely experience yeast overgrowth. Pregnancy and extreme use of antibiotics also causes the proliferation of yeast in the body. If   one uses foods that are too acidic in nature, they will cause the death of bacteria that reside in the stomach and help in balancing the yeast in the body. When those bacteria are killed, then the yeast thrives unchecked. It causes conditions like gas and bloating, oxidants, spread of toxin to organs like liver and spleen and inflamed penis head and vagina walls, to name but just a few of the indications. You must seek Candida treatment.


Candida treatment

The medical community cannot decide whether this is a disease or not. However, that does not mean that there is no cure because there is. You can treat the yeast syndrome by taking antibiotics prescribed by the doctor or by taking natural treatments. In fact, the latter are more famous because they do not only treat the symptoms but they also treat the causes of the infection. They boost the immune system to ensure that the infection does not occur again. Yeast syndrome also becomes resistant to antibiotics and that is why it’s smarter to seek alternative Candida treatment. Thankfully, one can administer many treatments at home and the good thing is that such have no side effects, are cheap and they work.


Prevention of Candida Albicans

The Prevention of Candida Albicans

Of course, Candida Albicans is preventable by natural means, if you can watch your diet and your health carefully. The important thing to bear in mind here is that everyone has yeast in the bodies and the immune system keeps all the bacteria and germs at an optimum level. However, sometimes the yeas overgrow and get into the blood stream through the walls of the small intestines. If that happens, the fungus spreads over 70 toxins to different types of the body. If one is hygienic and avoids the use of harsh cleansing agents, one will be able to prevent vaginal candidiosis.

To know how to prevent Candida Albicans

In adults, two forms of candidiosis affect them. These are the oral thrush and the vagina candidiasis. However, this does not have to happen to you if you can just take care of a few things and watch your diet. You will not suffer the symptoms of yeast overgrowth. Your body needs to balance the bacteria and the germs in the body. For this fungus to thrive, they need a warm and moist environment. Therefore, women should make sure that their genitals are dry after bathing or swimming. Now, many women think that douching after menstruation or after sexual intercourse is healthy but in reality, this is one of major causes of the proliferation of Candida Albicans because the water washes away the important germs and bacteria on the lining of the vagina walls. It is very important that you do not do that.

 To know how to prevent Candida Albicans

To know how to prevent Candida Albicans it is important to know how it occurs. If you know what causes this, then you will be better able to prevent it. One of the most common causes of candidiosis is a weakened or undeveloped immune system. HIV could cause this because it   weakens the immune system. In that case, it is very important that you eat a diet that is rich in minerals and vitamins, a balanced diet. If you are a victim of candidiosis then chances are that you are going to suffer from anemia because this yeast prevents the absorption of vitamin K into the bloodstream. That is why it is paramount to learn how you can avoid the over multiplication of the fungus so that you can avoid such serious incidences and anyway, prevention is better than cure.


Wear clean cotton underwear to allow air and absorption of sweat and moisture in the genital area. It is important that you avoid silk and nylon because those will not absorb the sweat. Also, make a habit of washing regularly and drying your genitals with clean towel. If you do this, you will minimize your chances of Candida Albicans overgrowth. If you have anal sex, do not go to vaginal sex without cleansing first. In fact, doing that has been established as the major cause of candidiasis in women and in men where the head of the penis becomes inflamed.


Do not use perfumes or powders in your genital area. They promote over multiplication of Candida Albicans. Do not be misled by what you read in the magazines because that is far from reality. The human vagina is good enough without the addition of perfumes and powders. If you use lubricants when having sex, it is important that you only use the mineral water based products because that will do no harm, or better yet, you should let the vagina lubricate itself.


So how can you know that you have caught vaginal Candida Albicans?  The first indication will be itching around and on the vulva. The second one will be inflammation in the vagina walls. This will lead to painful sexual intercourse and urination. The good news is that you do not have to suffer this if you can only follow the instructions that you learn here for the prevention of Candida Albicans.


Information is the key if you would like to know how to prevent this condition. It is not a woman problem but it also affects men. Another good way to prevent this is to take good and effective medicine when you are sick. It is not a life threatening condition though it can make your life very uncomfortable. If it is combined with other illnesses like HIV, it may be dangerous. Therefore, make sure that you are diagnosed and treated ASAP for Candida Albicans.

Candida Albicans Symptoms

Candida Albicans Symptoms

Candida Albicans symptoms can be manifested in both the physical and the mental and therefore to understand all of them better, it would be smart to read exhaustively about all of them. Since the species C.Albicans was first described in 1923, there has been tremendous success in diagnosis and treatment. However, before either of the two can be applied, you must first learn to identify the symptoms so that you can go for the clinical diagnosis. Some of the symptoms can be pretty obvious while others are mild and may even cause confusion. For example, there may be swellings around the toes and the fingernails. Just remember that research is the key and that the more that you know of the symptoms, then the better able you will be to know when you have candidiasis and go for treatment.


male-yeast-infection candida albicans symptomsNow, what exactly will you be looking for in the search for Candida Albicans symptoms? Of course, everyone has the C. Albicans in their digestive tract and in the oral cavities. However, sometimes the Candida will over multiply and it is at such times that candidiasis occurs which is not good because it wreaks havoc on the immune system and this may pave the way for other opportunistic diseases. When the yeast penetrates the intestinal tracts into the blood stream, it is carried to different organs in the body and then the fungus leaves its toxic by-products, which then affect the tissues and the immune system, promoting the presence of free radicals


What you should know about the Candida Albicans symptoms

There are so many symptoms and they vary greatly from one person to another. Therefore, it is not compulsory that you exhibit the same symptoms as the next person. That is why it is important that you know about as many of the symptoms as possible. If you do not, you will at best be very confused and will not know whether you are suffering from candidiasis and therefore you may end up taking one over the counter drug after the other. The good news though is that there is a lot of information on the internet about this and therefore research is the key.


Know that it is also very easy for you to confuse the Candida Albicans symptoms with others. Therefore, even when you are showing several symptoms together, it can still be hard to say for sure that you have candidiasis. At the onset of the first symptoms, just go for expert diagnosis.


Some of the common Candida Albicans symptoms are:

  1. White filmy paste in the mouth for oral thrush
  2. White or yellow discharge from the vagina
  3. Inflammation of the vaginal walls causing pain and irritation
  4. Infection round the toes and the finger nails
  5. Chills, high fever and flu like symptoms
  6. Inflammation of the penis head
  7. Weight loss or weight gain
  8. Yellowish or greenish sinus discharge
  9. Allergies
  10. Hay fever
  11. Bloating
  12. Dermatitis
  13. Athletes foot
  14. Joint pains
  15. Unexplained fatigue
  16. Low moods
  17. Nappy rashes
  18. Milk intolerance in children
  19. Disorientation/foggy brain
  20. General anxiety disorder, depression and panic
  21. Suicidal thoughts
  22. Bipolar disorder
  23. Hypoglycemia
  24. Asthma
  25. Ear infections
  26. Acute sensitivity to  chemical odors like cleaning agents
  27. Irritable bowel syndrome
  28. A leaky gut
  29. Diabetes
  30. Multiple sclerosis
  31. others


As you see there are tens, possible even more than 100 symptoms of the Candida Albicans. The complexity of the issue is that one person may exhibit a number of symptoms while another one exhibits other symptoms very different from the ones you already know. It is important that you master a few of the symptoms so that you know when to go for diagnosis.


As you may have noticed, the aforementioned Candida Albicans symptoms are mixed up, but a scrutiny will show you that some of them are emotional, others physical, some for adults and some for children. That is because when the C. Albicans gets it the bloodstream, it spreads more than 70 toxins in the body. If you had other underlying conditions like diabetes, the symptoms will be worse. The good news though is that there is treatment, mostly by the administration of antibiotics. Candida Albicans symptoms differ from one person to another and in severity too.


Candida Symptoms – Systemic Yeast Infections

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

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.
