Candida Albicans is a genus of fungus that causes what we routinely call yeast infections in sufferers.
It is commonly located on our bodies in small amounts. We posses it on our skin, and in our intestinal tracts.
The problem with it, is that it can grow to larger amounts than what our bodies can handle.
This imbalance often manifests itself when we take antibiotics or when we have weakened immune systems.
Because it can grow very rapidly, when we realize that we have a problem it can seem as if it hits us quite rapidly.
If you are one of the many who often experience bouts from this unpleasant condition, there are some ways to take action against it.
Because the uncomfortable symptoms usually affect the mucous membranes in the body, “Candida type yeasts” usually occur as infections in the respiratory tract, the female genital area, and the urinary tract.
Two of the most common symptoms are “itching” or “burning”, though odor is often stated.
If you have already had an infection such as this, you know that these are often the first two signs that you have one.
Common pharmacy creams can be used when a topical solution is necessary.
But when treatment for Candida is required internally, an anti-fungal medication such as Nystatin could be prescribed by your doctor.
If you think that you are suffering from an overgrowth of Candida such as Vaginitis, Athlete’s foot or jock itch, the pharmacy may offer treatment options. But if you are experiencing Candida Internally, please consider setting up an appointment with your doctor.
Some people experience symptoms without knowing that they are a result of Candida Albicans “fungus” overgrowth in their body.
A good idea is to keep a close eye on any kinds of symptoms and to keep thorough records of all aspects of the symptoms. Record things like what kind of symptoms, how bad, how often, and so-on.
A good suggestion is to monitor any kinds of symptoms and keep a medical diary to note how often you have them, how severe the symptoms are, where the symptoms are occurring, what you think may have triggered the symptoms etc..
This information will be of great assistance in getting an accurate diagnosis from your doctor.
