A Skin Rash Might be an ALERT that You Have a Yeast Infection

Jun 21, 2008
Are irritations and rashes of your skin evidence that you have a yeast infection? Before discussing the link between those symptoms and candida infection, let's quickly look at what yeast infection is and how Candida infection can appear as common skin ailments, along with symptoms that are internal or external.

Yeast is the medical term for fungi which only have one cell. The type of yeast species which is often present in the human body is known as Candida, and the infections that can be caused by these microbes are then called yeast infections or candidiasis. In a healthy body, the flora in the intestines and a correctly operating immune system suffice to keep Candida under control. However if the friendly bacteria disappear, if the body is under severe stress, or if there is heavy intake of fat food which provokes candida infection, then the normal proportion of beneficial microbes and Candida is destroyed. Candida then over grows rapidly and becomes fungal in form to tear apart the tissue in the intestines, get into the blood circulation and then spread yeast infection all over the body.

Candida may affect the body as a whole and can also be seen locally. Yeast infection of the skin, also known as candidal skin infection, is one of the most frequent types of yeast infection, and can appear almost anywhere that there is a skin fold: beneath the arms, in the groin area, underneath the breasts, between toes, in the skins surrounding the fingernails, and also for those who are overweight under the folds of the skin of the abdomen.

Medications, antibiotics and oral contraceptives can all impact the immune system, as can excessive consumption of refined carbohydrates, caffeine, alcohol and other processed foods which all act negatively on the beneficial bacteria. This in turn triggers candida growth and increases the risk of candidiasis. If a person does not have a strong immune system (for example those who are in a stressful situation or to insist on poor diet plans, like refined carbohydrates and yeasty food that encourage candy the overgrowth), they are more likely to contract yeast infection. In addition those people who wear shoes that are tight fitting or closed-toe and who participate in sports activities, are likely to contract skin infection due to Candida on their toes.

Local symptoms may also act in parallel with inner problems on a mental or emotional level when the yeast infection is severe. Symptoms will include digestive problems, bad breath, gas and bloating of the intestines, vision problems, abnormal desire for sugar, strange modifications in mood without warning, and tiredness. You need to recognize these kinds of symptoms if you want to make a good self-diagnosis of Candida and skin infection that is due to yeast. Typical local infections will include a rash which is brown or red in color and which can ooze. There may also be maceration or cracking of the skin or wetness and soreness in skin folds. All of this can be accompanied by pain burning and itching sensations in the affected areas and the onset of papules and pustules.

Yeast infections are the results of internal factors more than external and therefore if you want to cure Candida overgrowth and related symptoms, you need to do more than just treat the visible external manifestation. You cannot neglect the underlying causes. If the underlying reasons that provoked the yeast infection are not tackled, the disease can increase in severity and provoke further symptoms that degenerate even more. Although for years people thought that yeast infections of the skin were all local and could be effectively cured by topical medications, scientific information now shows us otherwise. However doctors persist in treating skin candidiasis with topical anti-fungal creams.

Get the facts here about the only way to really eradicate yeast infections by using an all-natural long-term holistic program that impacts from within and gets rid of yeast infections forever. Did you hear the news? Your yeast skin infection can be safely and permanently eliminated with the powerful holistic methods that rely only on natural solutions.
