Common Signs Of A Yeast Infection

Posted By: Michelle Rivers


Yeast infection, also known as candidiasis, is an affection with large incidence among women.

It is practically appreciated that 75% of all women have had this affection at least once.

The most frequent type of this widely spread infection is the vaginal one.


The infection is not strictly related to the sexual life; it can be caused by any factor that disturbs the equilibrium of vaginal flora, and predisposes to excessive multiplying of a fungus, called Candida albicans.

It can appear at both sexually active women and at virgins.

Men are rarely infected, and signs of yeast infection manifest as a strong penis irritation and pruritus.

Most often, yeast infection is asymptomatic, or symptoms are not spectacular, so that the woman does not notice and neglects them.

However, later on, untreated yeast infection leads to a series of problems, which is why it is best to early detect it.


Signs And Symptoms Of A Yeast Infection


Main signssigns of yeast infection


Modification of vaginal secretions

-Smell changes and becomes unpleasant

- Secretions lose their transparency

- Consistency is changed

- Secretions are more abundant.


· Dyspareunia


If during sexual contact, the woman feels discomfort, pain and smarting sensations, then something is definitely not right, and she may present yeast infection.

Specialists recommend the usage of condoms every time partners are changed, and it is preferable to use the same kind every time.


· Vaginal and vulva pruritus


Pathological vaginal secretions can affect and irritate the vulva, which is a sensitive area, since yeast infection secretions are more acid.


Thus, the woman can present pruritus, and even lesions.

The recommendation is to use intravaginal ovules that are going to treat the area.


· Urinating burning


Urinating pains are specific to urinary infections, but they can be a sign of yeast infection, especially when the vulva is irritated.

In case of candidiasis symptoms, a doctor needs to be consulted in view of making a series of analyses.




When the yeast infection reappears or is aggravated, blood analyze is effectuated.

Candidiasis has common signs with other diseases, and can sometimes be confused.

Regardless, yeast infection does not disappear by itself if not treated, and maintains its symptoms.

It has the bad habit of reappearing in case of stress or other aspects that cause a new disequilibrium of the intestinal flora.

A good hygiene and a balanced diet help prevent this disease.


Oral yeast infection


The yeast infection can also manifest orally.oral thrust yeast infection

Again, initial signs of yeast infection are not observable.

Based on what the cause is, symptoms and signs can suddenly develop and persist for a long period of time. They include:


· White lesions at the tongue, interior cheeks and palate level;

· Lesions with a cheesy aspect;

· Pains;

· Light bleedings when lesions are fragmented;

· Loss of taste.


In severe cases, lesions can spread down the esophagus, leading to the esophageal candidiasis.

When this happens, symptoms include difficulty in swallowing or the sensation of having food stuck in the esophagus.
