Treatment and Prevention of Candidiasis
Candidiasis, also known as thrush, is a type of fungus (Mycosis) that causes infection to genital and mouth area of the human body. Part of population that is most affected by this yeast is the women. Though seldom, it can even happen to men and is usually seen at the tip of the penis. At the time of its contact to the body, it will eradicate good bacteria called lactobacillus, which makes the body open to infection by Candidiasis.
Common causes of Candidiasis
Generally, the symptoms appear before a woman’s monthly period. Another triggering factor of Candidiasis is oral contraceptive. Normally, the genital part of a woman is acidic which helps fight off infections. However, the continuous use of oral contraceptives reduces the acid content of the vagina, which weakens its defense against fungal attacks. Candidiasis can be sexually transmitted too.
The use of strong detergents, deodorants or antibiotics can contribute to its growth because they can destroy the natural protection or good bacteria of the body that fights off bad bacteria.
Common symptoms of Candidiasis
When you contract this yeast, you will feel severe itchiness in your vagina, inflammation, soreness and white clump discharges. These symptoms are common to any type of fungal infection, that is why it is better to see a doctor to ensure that what you have is Candidiasis and get the right medication. In the case of men, severe itchiness will be felt at the tip of the penis, inflammation and red patchy sores on the surrounding skin.
