Yeast sometimes begins to grow rapidly out of control and can lead to infection. It's different for everyone as to what extent the excessive growth occurs. These microorganisms are normally residing in certain areas in our body such as the intestinal walls, throat, oral mucosa, and vaginal lining in females. Yeast is harmless and doesn't cause problems when their number is at a normal level, however once they begin to overgrow, infection will happen and lead to troublesome symptoms that can have serious affects.

Yeast intolerance symptoms change with regards to age and gender. Babies can get symptoms different from that of adults. Symptoms also vary between men and women. Females are more vulnerable to candida infection since their vaginal walls are where these yeast live. Men can also develop yeast infections through sexual contact with an affected lover.

Since candida yeast proliferation happens when the immune system can't control its growth, people who have compromised immune systems are also affected. Likewise, the ingestion of immunosuppressive drugs and antibiotics can badly affect the defenses of our system which in turn can cause excessive growing of yeast in the affected area.

Yeast Intolerance Symptoms In Infants

Yeast intolerance symptoms in babies can be a problem especially when feeding. The term oral thrush also called "moniliasis" is an issue whereby there's a formation of milk-like patches inside or around the mouth. It is very uncomfortable for the babies and affects their ability to feed properly It isn't simple to remove since it's attached to the tissues in the tongue, mouth, or palate and medical attention must be sought out right away to avoid potential dehydration.

Yeast Intolerance Symptoms in Females

There is irritation, itching and inflammation of the affected part of the body which may lead to painful urination as you may have a burning or stinging sensation. Other than that, discharges that are whitish and cheese-like are present and can make things more uncomfortable.

Other Signs and Symptoms

Candida albicans symptoms may not only happen on the usual affected areas like the mouth and vagina but may also occur on any damp part of the body. Let's take babies for instance. They can experience rash that may be thought of as diaper thrush. It happens because candida may also be found in other parts of the body, especially if that area is moist all the time.

There are also abdominal issues especially if it has already invaded your intestinal walls. One might get irritable bowel syndrome, irritation of the anus, bloating, abdominal gas, diarrhea and indigestion. The absorption of nutrients from food may be hampered if not treated accordingly.

Once it gets systemic, especially on individuals with weak immune system, the issues will really be difficult to determine as coming from a yeast infection. Once it goes systemic it can affect the systems organs in the body that can cause several manifestations. Fatigue, moodiness, anxiety, headaches, depression, weakness of muscle and joints, learning disabilities, and inability to focus or concentrate would be a bunch of the symptoms that could occur.

The brain is a sensitive organ in the body that can be affected by candida in one way or another. Seek medical attention once symptoms are becoming systemic. Fight off the candida yeast by following a yeast free diet and eating low-starch vegetables and adding probiotics to your diet. Avoid the sugary foods that these organisms thrive on along with foods containing yeast.

Good luck and here's to a healthier tomorrow!
