Yeast infection and thyroid

Common Questions and Answers about Yeast infection and thyroid


Avatar n tn I also get the funny feeling in my forhead(tingling tight feeling) the thrush symptoms come and go in my mouth, dizzy spells and headaches and anxiety attacks when I have a yeast infection. My doctor has test for everything STD wise and I have come back clear. My test for yeast came back as heavy yeast. The yeast can cause all those symptoms you are having when it has overwhelmed your body like mine. I have been treating it with some pretty heavy stuff and it still comes back.
Avatar n tn should i keep taking amoxicillin even if it cause a yeast infection or should i stop and treat the yeast infection
Avatar m tn My wife has re-ocuring yeast infection. Her doc took a swab and said no STS but yeast infection keeps comming back. y wife wants to ask her doctor for a sts test but I tell her yeast and sts are not realted. Is this correct?
Avatar m tn Water leak in the house where you stay, the season being rainy, not ensuring the cloths you wear are pressed and dry - all these can cause an yeast infection. Other causes can be using common toilets as in hostels or sexual contacts with persons already having an yeast infection or even exposure to plants and trees supporting fungal growth. It is also important to clean the head of the penis on a daily basis and keep the whole area and undergarments clean and dry.
Avatar f tn I have a yeast infection which will not go away. I went to my Gyn. and got a prescription for Terconazole 3 day which relieved symptoms but only lasted 1 day after treatment. They called in a prescription for a 7 day treatment. That didn't work and they treated me with Metrogel for a bacterial infection. The yeast came back (or never left!) and I treated myself with 7 day Monostat. One day later I have a raging yeast infection.
Avatar f tn Best to have a swab of the area and some cultures done and a PCR test to determine what the infection is and a blood test. But from what your describing does appear more fungal related than a herpes outbreak. With someone with long term herpes irritations would be only on one side not all over the place.
Avatar n tn I would think that instead you are either 1. not having a yeast infection at all, or 2. have a type of yeast infection that might be resistant to treatment. I'd see your doctor.
Avatar n tn No problem - I'm under the impression that yeast infections are, not to be too gross, moister and stickier than what you are describing. That's what led me to think it might be eczema - I have had that on my elbows, and I had the same type of patching and scaliness that you describe. There are other possibilities, the good news is they're pretty much all minor health issues from what I've read.
Avatar m tn So I went to the gyno yesterday and he said I had a pretty bad yeast infection and possibly a bacteria that he would have to get back to me on at the end of the week. I took my first pill and the itching and burning has went down but I have frequent urination! Could the yeast somehow bother the urinary tract? Im trying not to worry that its something else but have never had this before.
Avatar f tn I didn't think anything of it until a nurse friend suggested it sounded like prodrome symptoms. It literally happens every time my boyfriend and I have sex and I get a yeast infection. Is this sensation normal or should I be getting tested?! Has this happened to anyone else?
Avatar m tn Just Red skin that is a bit itchy and sore and looks like a yeast infection from pictures I've seen. I also get testicle pain and the skin on my sack is red and my doctor said it is the yeast/skin problem I have. My doctor said it probably is a yeast infection or skin problem that needs to be adressed by a specialist. And that I might have more yeast in my body than I should. My ex had no STD's she was checked for them. Her mom made a doctor test her for them.
237053 tn?1258832026 It sounds like a yeast infection. I'm not a doctor though. I had an early yeast infection back in May. Let me know.

Avatar m tn You may also try to look on the other conditions to be ruled out since you were cleared with diabetes and thyroid problems already. Dietary folate or iron deficiencies, decreased salivary flow and high carbohydrate diet are also implicated. Continue your medications as prescribed. Taking lacto bacillus acidophilus may also help. Take care and do keep us posted.
Avatar m tn I am dealing with my first yeast infection (I'm 28) and I am starting to wonder why I am still experiencing symptoms after treatment. My symptoms started after I had been swimming a lot in a quarry. I had external vulval redness and vulval/anal itching, tingling, discomfort. No discharge that I noticed. I let the infection go for 6 weeks before seeing a Gyn. I tried treating at home first, with monistat 3 - and when that didn't work at all - natural remedies like tea tree oil, but to no avail.
Avatar m tn Hi, we are not doctors on here but I am a clinical microbiologist and I can say you can't get a yeast infection just from eating starches in and of themselves. But being in the basement can possibly give you a respiratory or other type of fungus or other infection. So I would pursue that, as you are thinking of doing, with the infectious disease doctor. I think you haven't found the source of your stomach/intestinal problems.
Avatar n tn Please bear in mind that if you get a yeast infection and stop taking your antibiotic because of the yeast infection - you may still have some bad bacteria that are resistant to the drug and this could be bad in the long run....more medications, different antibiotics, you getting sick again, etc... - it's not fun, seriously. Now coming from a future pharmacist, yes, i'm still in pharmacy I ever finish my entire antibiotic regimine - most
Avatar n tn I too have been suffering from reoccuring a reoccuring yeast infection. It has been two and a half months since my first diagnosis of a yeast infection. My doctor prescribed Terconazole 7, which she said was the cadillac of all treatments. This only made the symptoms worsen. So I went back and was then told I still had a little bit of a yeast infection as well as BV. She then prescibed me an antibiotic (metro...?
Avatar f tn Graves Disease is most often associated with hyperthyroidism and causes the thyroid produces too much hormones. This is often treated with anti-thyroid medication, or the thyroid may have to removed or destroyed with radioactive iodine. Please post whatever thyroid blood test results you have, in order to allow members to better assess your situation. Be sure to include the reference ranges, since these vary lab to lab and must come from your own report.
Avatar f tn Well, a condition such as hypothyroidism can cause a decrease in the production of stomach acid, which in turn can cause an overgrowth of yeast. And since a compromised immune system can potentially lead to a yeast infection, then it makes sense that someone with an autoimmune thyroid condition would be more susceptible to developing such infections. So in many cases there can be a connection between a candida infection and a thyroid or autoimmune thyroid condition.
Avatar f tn I'm only eating complex carbohydrates and have eliminated sugars from my diet. I have been tested for thyroid and sugar problems and am perfectly healthy. I'm not using hormonal contraceptives. I wear cotton undies and avoid all chemicals in that area. I've tried all kinds of natural remedies and different lubricants during sex. I've tried condoms and no condoms. I'm a newlywed and haven't been able to have intercourse for a month because of the burning, even when no other symptoms are present.
Avatar f tn it is hard for us to advise when we do not know what your labs were, If you do not have them, go to or call your MD and request them, You need to request Free T3, Free T4 and TSH and the reference ranges for each. If you are having thyroid issues, depression and anxiety are among the symptoms, you need to calm yourself and try not to be streesed out, it is treatable once you receive the right medication to balance your thyroid. The more stress you incur the worse it will be.
Avatar n tn UA and wet mount is normal which would rule out a urinary tract infection and a yeast or gardnerella infection, but has she checked for STDs such as Gonorrhea or Chlamydia. Listen, these are less likely, but if she was thorough, these should have been done as well. 3. Urinary Tract Infection - But UA was normal.
Avatar f tn Last month my current pill was discontiued and thats when I started with the yeast problem again. Starting this past April 7th my Dr painted the area with Genetian Violet 3 times a week for 2 weeks. I started Garlic pills and have been taking 50 billion culture tablets of probiotics (since December) and am currently using Boric acid suppositories 2 a day. I also have purchased the Genetian Violet but have not try with the combination of the boric acid. I just started taking Flagyl 2 days ago.
787203 tn?1239724533 If you have a yeast infection like candida albicans, sugar will help it grow. Candida loves sugars and refined foods, coffee and alcohol. Also start taking all the vitamin B complex and vitamin A. If you have heavy metals in your body such as amalgam, candida will also consume these. Remove fillings if you have it and start taking low amounts of chlorella to absorbe the heavy metals.
Avatar n tn Prior to all of this, I only had 1 yeast infection in my lifetime in 6-98. I tend to get a yeast infection the week before my period. I KNOW that the PI for synthroid does not indicate yeast infections as being a side effect, but something has happened. I have been dealing with this problem for 7 months. I also became anemic after starting Synthroid. I am so frustrated with this issue that I stopped taking my synthroid 2 weeks ago. I am not sure what has changed.
Avatar n tn Can the sinus infection cause dizziness and fatigue? Due to the holiday weekend I haven't been able to call my doctor, but after 3 prior visits he's never suggested sinuses to be a cause.
Avatar f tn Went to see my Dr to pass pap tests, std tests and all where negative besides the yeast infection that keeps coming back! Could this be hormone related if In my family genetics everyone has had thyroid problems and i still havent tested to see if i have any so if i do my hormones arent balanced? I have tried almost everything for the past 4 years so if anyone has any advice please let me know!
Avatar n tn Other types of fungi are molds and mushrooms. Fungi are more closely related to animals than plants. An oral yeast infection in the mouth of infants and adults is called thrush. It is usually caused by the tiny yeast called Candida albicans. If the white patches are scraped away. The area underneath will be red and may bleed. People with endocrine disorders such as diabetes or hypothyroidism are the most at risk for oral yeast infections. - unquote. journal-a-day.
