A fungal yeast infection will usually affect only one part of your body but has the potential to spread to other parts and can become serious.
The most common form is called Candida Albicans.
Candida yeast naturally lives inside your body and is normally not a problem unless it grows out of control.
Yeast helps your digestive system operate normally and helps your immune system do its job.
It only becomes an issue in a small percentage of people.
Vaginal infections are probably the most well known conditions but other areas such as your skin, mouth (commonly called thrush), feet, and the penis can be affected as well.
Frequent use of antibiotics or oral birth control can cause an overgrowth of yeast and result in itchy rashes, bad breath, gas and bloating, coating on your tongue, etc.
Some problems can result from an allergy to yeast in foods like bread or beer. In severe cases you may even find it hard to breathe so you may want to ask your doctor to help figure out which foods to avoid.
There are several symptoms that can be associated with an infection:
