I am diabetic& have had a continuous yeast infectioinfection for the past two years. What are the long term consequences?
Yeast infections: Chronic yeast infections are very common in diabetes because of the high sugar concentrations in the urine, which help the yeast grow. They do not cause any long-term harm, but do cause annoying symptoms. The best way to control these is to get the blood sugar down and under control. When symptoms flare severely you can get otc creams (eg monistat) or a presciption pill from a doctor (fluconazole). ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Can the overgrowth of yeast in the body cause pneumonia or increase your risk for getting pneumonia or are they two unrelated things ?
Generally unrelated: Where would yeast be overgrowing. This theory of yeast overgrowth producing many other issues has never been scientifically proven and when subjected to inquiry does not stand up. Now, if you are immune suppressed, like with HIV disease you can have multiple illnesses simultaneously and this can include systemic yeast infections and pneumonia. Hope this is not you. Have a good thanksgiving. ...Read more
Ex: face skin compromised, letting yeast come in. Repair skin barrier or use anti-fungal? Two sides to this argument. How would you go about this?
See your doctor: Treating candida with an antifungal is not the best idea, without determining the cause, and whether the immune system is involved systemically. You mentioned the candida can come through an opening in your skin. So if you have an open wound of any kind, and are worried about an infection, or if it looks suspicious, and you want it treated accurately and precisely, then you should see your physician so they can do an examination, and make a diagnosis. Then treatment will be forthcoming. ...Read more
I read if you have more than one or two yeast infections a year it could be something seriously wrong how can you tell and stop the problem?
Medical checkup time: Occasional yeast infections in mouth or vagina are common after using antibiotics & resolve spontaneously or with brief anti-fungal treatment.

Me and my bf never use protection but the LAST two time i got a yeast infection and those were my first time gettin them out of my 22years of living?
Make sure it's yeast: Yeast infections usually are not caught from partners. We all carry yeasts normally, and apparently new infections are just increased growth of yeasts already present. Are you sure it's yeast? Has it been professionally diagnosed? If not, see doctor ASAP if your main symptoms are discharge or odor, if at risk for STDs (e.g. if your relationship is new, or if either of you has had other partners). ...Read more
Should i worry if i get one or two yeast infections a year. I do everything right but still get them.
No: I wouldn't worry, they can be very common and some women are just more prone to getting yeast infections more often than others. Prevention= avoid douching, wear cotton underwear and loose fitting pants or skirts, change out of wet clothes such as swimsuits or workout attire as soon as possible, stay out of hot tubs or very hot baths. Hope this helped :]. ...Read more
What are symptoms of yeast infection? Is it possible to have one for a year or two? If not treated?
Yeast: Yeast grows in warm, moist climates I.e. The vagina, groin, armpits, under the breast, and in the mouth. A healthy immune system can fight off yeast, especially if our microbiome is intact.
