Yeast Infection Symptoms: the Importance of a Quick Diagnosis

May 9, 2008
Even if most yeast infection symptoms may not have serious health implications, it is imperative to diagnose fast and act on this matter. Doctors and medical paraprofessionals are practically unanimous that a first diagnosis of the gravity and kind of yeast infection (also known as candidiasis), primarily effected by a questionnaire concerning symptoms of yeast infection, is needed to ensure the quickest and most effective cure. The reasons for this are:

1. Ignoring yeast infection can bring about increased physical discomfort and on occasions the onset of chronic, even threatening health conditions. 2. Recurring symptoms of yeast infection are often evidence of serious general internal imbalance or degradation of the immune system.

However, preliminary awareness of symptoms of yeast infection is necessary in order to make a first diagnosis that counts. For example, you should be conscious of the fact that Candida infections can settle in different body areas, and that identifying the particular symptoms means specific knowledge on the subtype. Luckily, for many people it is possible to effect one's own first diagnosis of yeast infection, and to then see the family physician. Examples of subtypes of yeast infections often encountered and their principal symptoms are as follows:

1. Symptoms of vaginal infection: discharge similar to "cottage cheese", being thick and white from the vagina: vaginal itching and burning (also in the part of the body surrounding this area); distressing pain during sex or urination. 2. Thrush: an excessively red tongue without bright spots may be one sign; for adults, a disagreeable burning that is felt in the oral cavity; the inner oral surface can display yellow or white spots and a red background, with possible hemorrhaging if you try to wipe them off. 3. Nappy rash: rashes in the area of the diaper. 4. Male Candidiasis: penile sporadic discharge; a red aspect with exaggerated sensitivity as well as blotches, skin inflammation of the penis, stinging or tingling in the penis, swollenness. 5. Infections of the nail bed (paronychia): pain in the area infected, pus and swollenness, yellow or white nails coming adrift from the underlying nail bed.

Besides localized signs, Candida infection can also have overall results such as:

1. Drowsiness, chronic fatigue, lack of get up and go. 2. Exaggerated and persistent fixation on products high in sugar and flour content, such as cakes, white bread and other products from the bakery. 3. Aching muscles. 4. Adverse reactions / allergies to food. 5. Bloating or gas.

It should be noted that without experience, some people can misdiagnose themselves with yeast infections, when in fact their medical condition is very different. Some very grave medical conditions and diseases, like herpes and HIV, can show symptoms similar to yeast infections. So after an independent yeast infection diagnosis, schedule an appointment with a doctor in order to make the final comprehensive diagnosis.

Holistic programs, structured on defined homeopathic remedies, herbal treatments, specific supplements and protocols, combined with the elimination of toxins and changes in lifestyle, have been shown to tackle the inner causes of yeast infection instead of its superficial symptoms. If candidiasis recurs and doubly so for generic symptoms, then serious thought should be used about the options to conventional medical responses. Using the holistic plan, you can cure and halt, securely, effectively and naturally, all kinds of yeast infection.
