Pinpointing Vaginal Yeast Infection Symptoms

By , August 30, 2012 1:50 pm

Vaginal yeast infection is also referred to as candidiasis. It is a fungal infection brought about by a number of species of Candida, of which Candida Albicans is the most common type. This fungus is usually present on normal human skin and in areas that are generally warm and moist. Under certain conditions, a change in their environment causes them to increase in quantity beyond normal, causing infection. There are, however, ways which may help you properly identify vaginal yeast infection symptoms.

Not so normal sensations

The easiest way for a woman to make out if she has yeast infection is that she itches severely in and around her vaginal area. The itching may not be present at all times. But when it does, it itches a lot so badly she finds it difficult to walk. It may also be accompanied by a burning sensation or be generally painful for her to urinate.

Separating the issues

One good way to make a distinction of the burning sensation that is due to a yeast infection and a urinary tract infection is to take notice when exactly the burning occurs. If the burning sensation is felt when the urine reaches outside, then she is most likely having yeast infection. This is due to the acidic, coming into contact with the irritated of the vulva. Urinary tract infection, on the other hand, causes a burning sensation as the urine passes through the urinary tract on its way out.

A contained redness

Another yeast infection sign is the slight redness localized in the vaginal and vulvar areas. Soreness and irritation of the said areas are also present, which makes it for the woman to experience pain and discomfort during sexual intercourse.

As mentioned earlier, Candida is normally present in the skin and in most areas of the body that are warm and moist. This means that signs and symptoms of candidiasis may also appear in different areas of the body in many different ways.

A nasty clump of white stuff

Most women bracket together a thick discharge that looks like cottage cheese with vaginal yeast infection. However, not everyone gets a discharge. In fact, only about 20% of infected women experience it. The discharge may have a starchy odor to it – something that resembles the smell of bread or beer – or sometimes none at all. Its consistency may typically range from thick and not clumpy at all, faint yellow to white, and to thin and clear.

Since not everyone who has vaginal yeast infection gets a discharge, still the best and easiest way for a woman to tell whether or not she is experiencing yeast infection symptoms is that she itches in and around the vaginal area.

Aside from the vaginal infection

Oral candidiasis, or oral thrush, is characterized by white, lacy patches that can form on the palate, tongue, or elsewhere in the oral cavity. These patches sometimes appear resembling curdled milk. Candidiasis may also appear as red flat rashes with scalloped edges in diaper areas and skin folds. Satellite lesions – smaller patches of rashes nearby – usually are also present, which may cause itching and pain in the area. Male yeast infection, although less common, include symptoms such as red patch sores of the glans penis and the foreskin.

There will be some differences to its vaginal yeast infection symptoms counterpart, but for the most part they are similar. In people with weakened immune system, candidal infection may also affect the esophagus and the stomach.

There is a connection between candida and cancer ?so asserts Doug Kaufmann, author and expert on nutrition who has studied yeast infections and candida for over 30 years. Kaufman’s studies demonstrate that fungi in foods, as well as the overuse of antibiotics, lead to intestinal overgrowth that can compromise our health in many ways, including cancer. As proof of his research findings, Doug Kaufmann devised a diet based on the widely examined problem of mycotoxin contamination of the grains we eat. Children with documented cases of leukemia saw the disease vanish after some simple changes in their diet. After a cycle of antibiotics use, Doug Kaufmann also says, the candida/yeast/fungus overgrowth that comes in its wake can be lethal. And this drug-induced imbalance in the intestinal flora is a reality, to different degrees, in 90% of the American population. Since cancer and yeast infection have been linked, any effort you make to reduce your yeast overgrowth will not only improve your general health. It will also diminish the real, albeit worst-case cancer threat that this condition represents.

In this area there are specialists who can guide you, as well as simple and effective self-tests and self-treatments. Also?be sure to avoid the foods that actually nourish candida/yeast infection. The biggest villains are sugar and white flour products, refined foods, and commercially processed meats, which are full of hormones. Eat as much non-processed food as possible, with lots of vegetables. Read up on the blood type diet, or any other natural foods diet that attracts you. Be sure to use Oil of Oregano for 6 weeks in combination with the diet. Oil of Oregano will be able to diminish or disappear your candida/ yeast infection. Simple home test by spitting in a glass of water in the morning and see how much spirals and sediment appear can be very useful in checking the progress of your diet/ Oil of Oregano. Natural hormone creams as Prosperine can be supportive too. All the above have to do with taking well care of your self.

Be sure to enjoy your life and radiate love, so love finds its way back to you.

Warmly, Pieternel van Giersbergen.
