Candidiasis is a yeast infection commonly known as oral candidiasis. It is usually caused by a yeast called Candida albicans.
Yeast or Candida (fresh fingers), known scientifically, is present in all normal human skin and mucosa, such as the mouth, intestines, and more particularly the vagina. Candida particularly likes the hot and humid areas of the body, so it is located in the groin, under the arms and at the folds of the skin. According to the study, a large number of women carry yeast in their genital area. In fact, it is said that about 80% to 90% of women carry yeast in the vagina without causing symptoms.
The most common candidiasis is vaginal candidiasis. Symptoms of vaginal candidiasis include odorless vaginal secretions, which typically have a white appearance similar to cheese. White patches sometimes appear and the red base is inflamed on the mucosa. Vaginal candidiasis is severely itchy and painful.
Candidiasis is another yeast infection caused by candidiasis characterized by the formation of white spots on the mucous membranes of the mouth and tongue. The lower surface of the plate is red and painful, which makes it difficult to eat. It is also common for infants to refuse breastfeeding and be stimulated.
Infants often develop diaper rashes, sometimes caused by Candida. When the rash is caused by a yeast infection, a wet red rash appears around the baby’s buttocks and genitals.
Men also suffer from candidiasis. Men usually have Candida in the groin (Jock Itch) and can spread to the genital area. Jocked eczema is associated with a wet red rash in the groin. Balanitis is an infection of the penis, usually associated with milky white patches on the outer surface, especially in uncircumcised men.
Other hot and humid areas of the body often also infect yeast, especially in the wet areas under the arms and breasts, as well as the wrinkles of obese people. In the skin, yeast infections cause a moist rash that ignites, causing itching and pain.
Candida albicans is the main cause of paronychia (fresh fingers) and is a Candida infection around the nail. The nail bed turned red, swollen and very painful. The nail itself is usually not involved.
So, if Candida is usually present in the body, why do so many people get infected with yeast? The reason is that Candida usually lives harmlessly in the body, it can control the body’s immune response. The immune response includes the normal resident flora of the body, which prevents the yeast from becoming too large and causing infection.
Candidiasis can be caused by a variety of factors, whether it is hormonal changes, diabetes, serious illness or reaction to washing powder, showers, nylon underwear and skinny jeans. Try to find out the cause of the yeast infection so that it is minimized or avoided altogether.
Treat or eliminate any root cause
Of course, if you are diagnosed with a potential illness such as diabetes, cancer, AIDS, or if you are pregnant, you should be supervised by a doctor and you should take the Candida infection seriously. Sometimes triggers can be as simple as the pill you are taking. Investigate known triggers and see if any of them are relevant to you, then process or eliminate the cause.
Change your eating habits
Since yeast infections are almost 80% related to diet, it is clear that some type of food control is required to eliminate repeated yeast infections, whether using drugs or supplements. It is a good idea to study the types of foods that can cause candidiasis and eliminate candidiasis from the diet. It is also recommended to eat foods that help eliminate yeast in the body.
Change your lifestyle
Stress, fatigue, and lack of exercise have an impact on recurrent candidiasis, and you need to make sure you consider them when you want to permanently eradicate candidiasis.
