Systemic Candida Symptoms

After having read this article, you should have a certain level of understanding about systemic Candida symptoms and how to eliminate Candidiasis from your life for good. What we call systemic Candida, is in fact an infection triggered by a type of fungus named Candida. This fungus often resides in small amounts in our mouth, digestive tract and vagina. Systemic Candida occurs when the fungus outgrow the bodies good bacteria thus causing severe symptoms to our body.

The risk of Candida is greatly increased in the following situations: pregnancy, zinc deficiency, and diabetes. Candida will have a higher probability of happening when our natural resistance is weakened.

Vaginitis is one of many cases of infection of Candida. Vaginitis is name used to indicate the yeast infection of the vagina. When you are having vaginal Candida, you often feel burning, itching and a little swelling.

To detect vagina yeast infection, your doctor will take a small vagina discharge sample and use a microscope to find trace of fungus.

The disease can also occur within the mouth. This is called Candida albicans thrush or Candida throat. When you have Candida throat, you may experience great itching and burning in the throat. Moreover, your taste will also be altered.

When your throat is affected by Candida infections, the situation becomes a more serious one. Esophageal Candida is the name used for this kind of infection. The infection often occurs simultaneously with Candida thrush. Some of the symptoms are pain in chest, nausea, and painful swallowing. Since eating is very difficult when one is having this kind of infection, one often loses weight. If the infection is not well taken care of, it can move forward to the lower digestive tract and large intestines.

Candida can also infect your skin as well. The areas that can easily be affected by Candida infection are the folds of the skin such as the areas under your breast, cuts, burns and other scars. If these symptoms are not attended to, the illness can spread to your fingernails and toenails.

When Candida symptoms begin to spread to all areas of the body, the patient's vital organs are threatened. Disseminated Candidiasis is the term associated with this condition. Virtually any organ in your body is susceptable.

There are a variety of antifungal drugs used to treat Candida. In order to be clear, we divide drugs into two different groups: topical (the drugs used are only targeted at a specific area on your body), and systemic (these drugs will focus on a general treatment on your entire body. The choice to use either type of drugs is based on your health condition and the severity of the illness.

In topical cure, the doctor will use various types of drugs for various parts of the body. Creams, lozenges, vaginal tablets and suppositorie are a few names of the drugs used.

In the case of systemic therapy, Diflucan, Nizoral, and Nystatin are some drug names that can be used for treatment. The treatment period usually lasts for at least eight to twelve weeks before any noticeable improvement can be seen.

Fungizone (amphotericin B) can be injected directly into the patient's vein. This is by far the most powerful treatment for Candida. Therefore, it is used in case other methods have been unsuccessful or in case the disease tends to be extremely aggressive.

Many drugs used for Candida treatment have side effects like nausea, vomiting, or belly pain. However, amphotericin B is the one that has the most serious side effect. It can damage your kidney and liver if used for a long time. Therefore, if the situation is not life-threatening, the doctor will avoid using amphotericin B. If they are obliged to use it, they often limit the period of treatment to two weeks, if the illness alleviate, they will immediately switch to fluconazole.

In order to treat systemic Candidiasis, it is important that one target the root of the problem. This is generally the overgrowth of Candida that resides within the intestine. Eliminating the colonies that reside in the digestive tract will have a domino effect for any other region of the body that Candida has infected.
