Everything You Need To Know About Yeast Infections

Jul 23, 2008
If you suspect you're suffering from a vaginal yeast infection then you'll be joining 75% of women who suffer at least one infection in their lifetime. Although a high percentage of women suffer from yeast infections men can also suffer as the usually harmless Candida Albicans yeast lives in and on everyone from a very early age.

There are over 20 types of infections with the most popular being caused by the Candida yeast. And along with the many types of infections come many ways to cure yourself. Conventional over the counter drugs and medications are the most popular form of treatment, but these are slowly being replaced with natural cures as more men and women are turning their back on drugs to treat fungal infections.

Where drugs just attack the yeast, natural remedies work with your body to fight the yeast and strengthen your body's natural defences.

The Candida yeast will usually attack a warm moist area on the human body. This is the reason why women are infected a lot more than men as the vagina is the warmest and moistest area on the body. Other areas are that are commonly infected are the mouth, under folds of skin., and feet

Babies can also suffer from a yeast infection, and this is commonly known as diaper rash. People that wear ill fitting dentures are also susceptible to mouth thrush.

The mutated Candida fungus can also infect the intestines, and if left untreated or not treated correctly this can lead to the bloodstream being infected. The mutated fungus will attach itself to the walls of the intestines in the same way it attaches itself to your skin or the inside of your mouth. The yeast will then burrow it's way through the walls of your intestines until it perforates them and makes it's way into your bloodstream.

Infections on the outside of the body are easily diagnosed by your doctor, but intestinal yeast infections are very rarely diagnosed as there is no know medical cure. There are also too many symptoms associated with intestinal yeast to pinpoint the cause of them.

If you suspect you're suffering from an infection caused by the mutated Candida fungus then you need to see your doctor for a correct diagnosis. If you self diagnose yourself and get the diagnosis wrong you have the risk of another bacterial infection being treated incorrectly.

An incorrect diagnosis of a vaginal infection can lead to damage of your reproductive organs. Once a correct diagnosis has eventually been made after a number of unsuccessful treatments it can be too late.

It's much better to be safe than sorry so a doctors appointment should be made as soon as possible.
