Candida Symptoms - What You Should Know
Sep 17, 2012 | By Katie Farmand
Candida symptoms are different for everyone to a certain degree, but basically come from the same standard list of symptoms. Also, it is important to note that the Candida symptoms that you experience might be different than those experienced by someone else depending on the location of the condition. Candida symptoms can occur because of mouth (thrush), yeast overgrowth (vaginal), and in other warm, moist areas on the body (creases and crevices in the skin). Once you identify the location, you will know what Candida symptoms to look for.

How to Identify Candida Symptoms
The types of Candida symptoms that you experience can occur in different places, but they are basically the same. Common symptoms of Candida Albicans (yeast) include:

  • Discharge (nasal or vaginal, depending on location)
  • Burning or pain
  • Sores or blisters
  • White, thick substance (cottage cheese-like)
  • Digestive discomfort or issues
  • Abdominal pain

These Candida symptoms can occur in the mouth or vagina, as well as other places on the body where there is a moist, dark environment for the yeast to grow. The symptoms are most common in the vaginal area and the mouth, however.

What Causes Candida Symptoms?
Candida symptoms are caused by an overgrowth of Candida bacteria (yeast) in the body. This can have many different causes, including things like:

  • Suppressed immune system
  • Hormonal imbalance
  • Antibiotics and medications
  • Medical conditions
  • Stress or poor health
All of these factors play a role in the development of Candida symptoms. Some people are going to be more prone to these issues than others, depending on their state of health and their lifestyle. It is important to know what to expect so that you can resolve Candida symptoms accordingly.

Resolving Candida Symptoms the Natural Way
Anyone who develops Candida symptoms for the first time should see a doctor. However, for people who have frequent symptoms of Candida overgrowth, home remedies is one natural solution. Specifically, probiotics for women can help with Candida symptoms that you might be experiencing.* You can find these good bacteria in foods and probiotic supplements, allowing you to choose where you get your health benefits from. If you do have or suspect that you have symptoms of Candida; probiotics is a natural choice if you don't want medication. But, we do recommend that you seek a doctor's advice to see if probiotics are the right choice to help maintain vaginal and urinary health in the long term.*
