“Cherlene! Stop scratchin’ like that, you’re embarrassing me!”
“Ohhh Girl, I done got a yeast infection . . . again.”
“When do you not, have a yeast infection? What’re you gonna do about it this time?”
Cherlene just can’t seem to get rid of those yeast infection symptoms. But how does she really know if she has a true yeast infection or not? Are there definite signs of a yeast infection? In this series we have talked a lot about the general symptoms that go with these types of infections. Now let’s look at it with a little more detail.
Signs of a Yeast Infection: What is a Yeast Infection?
If you get a yeast infection it’s really your own fault. Now before you get all riled, here’s what I mean. All humans have the fungus that causes the Signs & Symptoms Yeast Infection on their body. Candida albicans is ever present on your body, and in the right balance with other germs, doesn’t show its ugly symptoms. It’s when you have an overgrowth of the fungus that you start to see signs of a yeast infection. This happens when:
- You come into contact with someone (often sexually) who already has an active infection
- Immune System is suppressed (illness)
- Certain Diseases (ex. – Diabetes, HIV)
- Bad Diet (high in sugar and dairy)
- Occasionally recreational drug use
When these conditions occur, that’s when your body’s “bad germs” attack and you get sick. If the bad germ happens to be C. albicans, then you develop signs of a yeast infection. That’s what’s meant by, it’s your own fault.
What are the Signs of a Yeast Infection?
There are symptoms that become chronic, and are less obvious signs of a yeast infection. They are not readily noticeable and often associated with, and possibly attributed to, other illnesses.
- Constipation or Diarrhea
- Bloating and Gas
- Bad breath
These are symptoms that most everyone has had at one time or another. If you were to experience say, diarrhea or bad breath, your first concern would not be a yeast infection. However, coupled with other outward signs of a yeast infection, then you might tend to look at C. albicans as a root cause.
The more obvious symptoms associated with a yeast infection are the noticeable, irritating ones.
- Itching and Scratching
- Burning during Urination
- Dry skin
- Spots or Sores
- Pain and Discomfort
- Painful Sex
These are the signs of a yeast infection that are more traditional. For anyone who has ever had a yeast infection, you know the irritation and insanity they can bring. These more acute symptoms, in conjunction with the chronic list above make Candida albicans a potentially formidable condition.
Signs of a Yeast Infection: What Can You do About It?
