I am diabetic& have had a continuous yeast infectioinfection for the past two years. What are the long term consequences?

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 more

Can the overgrowth of yeast in the body cause pneumonia or increase your risk for getting pneumonia or are they two unrelated things ?

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

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.

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

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?

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. Persistent or recurrent yeast infections especially without obvious cause require evaluation as they suggest a weakening of your immune system. Your primary care physician should see you and begin the evaluation. ...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

Me and my girlfriend had sex with each other for the first time. A day or two later she had gotten a yeast infection. What could've caused this?

Many factors: Yeast infections are very common. The possible irritation or trauma associated with first intercourse may have precipitated this. Easy to treat and not necessarily related to you, but you might want to use an antifungal cream on your penis for several days to minimize risks of giving it back to her. ...Read more

Can I use adult, over the counter, yeast infection cream on my two year old?

Yeast infections : Yes you can. It maybe better to first see if it is a true yeast infection by seeing your pediatrician. Redness and pain maybe due to bacterial infection and antibiotics are required. Adults get yeast vaginitis more than children. For a home remedy you can try a vinegar bath (1cup per tub). ...Read more

With more information, it will be easier to answer this. Also...please discuss with her pediatrician. ...Read more

¿what can I do, ? I have yeast infection for two weeks and oral thrush for a week

See your dr soon: You definitely will want to see your doctor very soon. For you to have used infections and oral thrush, you need to have your immune system evaluated further. You may need to consult with an integrative physician to get their recommendations to evaluate your nutritional status, lab values, stressors, and to see how you can support your intestinal system better by staying away from sugars and starches. ...Read more
