Worrying About Yeast Rashes?

Mar 10, 2008
When you have a yeast rash, it's important to deal with it but it's also important to consider what may have caused it. First and foremost, is it in fact a yeast related rash? Those who have had this type of condition before are fairly competent in self diagnosing but if you suspect you have a yeast infection but have not had one in the past, it is wise to be sure before taking treatment measures.

Recurring Yeast Rashes

If you are someone who has repeated yeast infections or rashes it might be time for you to take a closer look at candida and how it's impacting your life. It's also wise to look at how you can take yeast infection treatment from a repetitive thing to a proactive approach so it doesn't continue to impact your health and your pocket.

What is a yeast infection?

A yeast infection is the overgrowth of candida albicans. While we all have a certain amount of these critters in our systems, an overgrowth results in a whole host of unpleasant symptoms. Yeast infection symptoms can include a yeast rash, diaper rash, oral thrush and a whole host of other symptoms like food cravings, irritability, sinus problems, headaches and listlessness. Some people even suffer from other symptoms including sexual dysfunction, food allergies, increased PMS symptoms, acne, memory problems and lowered immune system. When you get a yeast infection, treatment is important. Not only should you treat the symptoms though, you need to also treat the cause for the problem as well.

Yeast infection treatment might be more than just a yeast rash cream or ointment. It might even involve changing the way you eat or taking additional supplements to create a more harmonious pH balance in your body. Be very careful about home remedies for yeast infection rashes listed on the internet. Some dangerous recommendations are listed including the use of boric acid which can be extremely dangerous.

Using over the counter medication can temporarily stop a yeast infection, get rid of the yeast rash and help symptoms subside. What might also be helpful is reducing yeast causing food as well as taking probiotic supplements especially after taking antibiotics. Because antibiotics kill all the bacteria in your gut you rid your digestive system of positive bacteria and when the good guys are gone, the bad guys can take over. It's wise to take precautions against potential candida infections when you know take antibiotics and getting to the cause of the repeated infections can increase the likely hood of keeping candida symptoms and yeast related rashes away for good.

While yeast infections are considered a nuisance to most and rarely serious for the average person, the fact is that repetitive yeast infections are a sign of something being 'off' in your body. If your immune system is compromised such as with HIV/AIDS then a yeast infection could be potentially dangerous. Systemic candidiasis is rare but can be fatal so again recurring yeast infections need to be closely investigated.
