Symptoms of Candidiasis

Symptoms of Candidiasis: Introduction

Symptoms of candidiasis differ depending on the severity of the infection and the area of the body affected. Symptoms of a mouth yeast infection (oral thrush) include the development of yellow-white patchy lesions in the mouth and on the tongue. The sores are raised and may also appear in the throat as well. The patches may become sore and raw, and it may become painful and difficult to swallow.

Symptoms of a vaginal yeast infection include vaginal itching and irritation, burning with urination, and a thick cheesy-white vaginal discharge. Symptoms of a digestive tract yeast infection include vomiting and diarrhea.

Complications of candidiasis can be serious for people with weakened immune systems, such as those with HIV/AIDS or those taking steroid medications or on chemotherapy. The yeast infection can grow and spread throughout the body, causing an infection in vital organs, such as the heart and the brain. This can result in such critical, life-threatening candida infections as nephritis, meningitis, and endocarditis.

Candidiasis, especially recurrent infections, can also be a symptom of a more serious condition, such as HIV/AIDS or diabetes. Because of this, it is important to seek medical care if symptoms of candidiasis occur to determine it cause....more about Candidiasis »
