What is candidiasis and its treatment. Is there any herbal treatement for this. ?

I was diagonized diabetic at 27 and that is the time I started experiencing itch on my private parts. I am now on insulin and candidiasis is really a problem. Any cure?

Candidiasis is the term used to describe what happens when the yeast that normally populate the gut become pathogenic and reproduce uncontrolled, resulting in an infection that is almost parasitic in nature.

The yeast cell is normally round, and at healthy levels they help to keep things moving along in your digestive system. When disbiosis occurs (an imbalance in the normal gastrointestinal flora, or bacteria and fungi that populate the gut) the yeast cells can grow unchecked and may become pathogenic (or cause disease). When this happens, the yeast cells develop rhizoids (or flagellates, little tail like appendages) that they use to burrow into the intestinal walls in search of food. Get enough of them in there and you may end up with leaky gut syndrome, a condition in which the intestine has become permeable and undigested food particles and waste products from the yeast can make their way into the bloodstream where they are treated as toxins and an immune response is triggered. This can make a person feel very sick.

The diabetic diet should go a long way toward starving the candida, as it feeds on sugar. It is tantamount that you keep your blood sugar levels under control to have any measure of success in battling a yeast infection.

But, that alone isn't a cure. In severe cases, strict adherence to the anticandida diet is required (this includes total avoidance of sugar, both natural and artificial, as well as moldy and yeasty foods such as cheese, all vinegars except ACV, mushrooms, pickles, and alcohol), and may be for several months or even years before a balance is achieved.

A good probiotic is also necessary to help repopulate decreased levels of the healthy bacteria normally present in the gut that keep yeast in check.

In addition, antifungal therapy may be necessary, such as a prescription medication (like diflucan or nystatin powder) or herbal remedy (such as oil of oregano, pao d' arco, or other herb with antiviral properties).

Digestive enzymes can go a long way toward starving yeast because they help to break down food before it reaches the intestine, where the yeast are feeding.

Usually a comprehensive (or multitier) program works the best, and long term therapy is required to acheive a good result. Diet, probiotics, antifungals, and digestive enzymes together should give a good result if the program is adhered to faithfully.

Keep in mind that if you kill off too many yeast cells at once you may experience what is known as a herxheimer response. This happens when too many dead yeast cells and their byproducts are killed to be comfortably filtered by the system. If this occurs, simply let up a bit on the therapy and go at it a bit more gradually.

Is there a non-over the counter drug to cure cutaneous candidiasis?

I have a stubborn case of cutaneous candidiasis (yeast infection), I have been to the dermatologist for it many times have have tried many things. Verdeso was the only thing that worked but it came back after my sample was done. Then he put me on something else that doesn't work at all. I was wondering if there is anything that you could buy non over the counter that anyone has found to treat this. Thank you.

If Oral candidiasis is caused by a medicine will it go away after the medicine isn't taken anymore?

If Oral candidiasis is caused by the side-effect of a medicine will it go away after the medicine isn't taken anymore?

sometimes, but who want's that, it can be painful to swallow, or eat. just get diflucan or nystating or mycelex troches. I like Diflucan, don't like Nystating swish/spit/swallow. I want it gone, but can be caused by steroid inhalers/asthma/ antibiotics/inhaled /oral. some women get vag yeast infect instead. get Rx.  (+ info)

How can you tell the difference between leukoplakia and oral candidiasis by inspection?

I have seen both patches of oral hairy leukoplakia and oral candidiasis.
The lesions of OHL are always darker in appearence and look more like mold on the tongue and the hard pallate. The lesions have rounded edges and are always multiple in numbers.
The lesions of oral candida are always pink in the middle with concentric whitty pathces on the edges which gives them a whitty appearence on the edges.
They are also round edged and are are more on the hard pallate.

The other important observation is that aral candidiasis hurts and the person with it will complain of pain during chewing and swallowing (Dysphagia). while the lesions of OHL do not hurt and sometimes the person does not know they are there untill an oral exam is done or during oral hygiene.  (+ info)
