"CANDIDA" is a form of yeast infection and by common usage has come to mean symptoms caused by typical yeast infections and/or yeast allergy. Do you get recurrent vaginal, prostate or urinary infections? Do you know that Candida causes thrush and can also trigger skin problems such as Psoriasis. Do you have a persistent rash around the crotch or under the breast or armpits? Do you get a white covering over the tongue? If you do get any of these, as well as some other symptoms then you may be suffering from the yeast infection known as Candida.
'Candida', or yeast overgrowth infection and/or allergy can make you feel perpetually tired and fatigued without apparent cause. It is a serious and debilitating disease that can also affect the immune system so you react badly to some foods and chemicals.
Do you know that even after you have been treated for Candida and the infection is cleared away you can continue to get Candida symptoms due to your allergy to the Candida and other yeast organisms which may be present even in minute amounts? Because of recurrent infection you may have developed an allergy to yeasts which makes your symptoms persist and because many usual foods and drinks contain yeast you may have also developed yeast allergy which mimic the symptoms of Candida.
Our sympathetic doctors look forward to helping you. They may do medical tests to exclude other diseases that can cause your symptoms or test you for reactions to certain allergens (allergy tests). You may request allergy skin tests. Priority is given to what might be triggering your Candida symptoms.
This practical information is made available by the Allergy Centre. We can tell you if you have Candidiases, what it is, how you can be tested for it, what you can do about it, the best treatment, whether you may benefit from being desensitised and the best medication to use for Candida.
