Not only is it itchy, painful and smelly, but it is also wreacking havoc on your social life. What are you going to do?

Before you rush out and buy the first anti-fungal cream that you can find, try to understand what is causing your yeast infection first. You will find that many of the things that you use for relief will only solve the problem temporarily. So it is best to find out what is causing the problem before you try to treat it. Otherwise, your symptoms will only go away for a little while, but they will return at a later date even stronger than they were before.

A Candida yeast infection is caused by the pesky Candida fungus. It isn’t always a pesky and irritating fungus. In all actuality, small quantities of it live in your intestinal tract. It is there to help other bacteria remove toxins from your body. So, it is a big help when your body does not have an imbalance. However, whenever bad bacteria takes over and has a larger population than good bacteria a problem exists. This means that there is an overgrowth of the Candida fungus in your body and you will start developing the symptoms of a yeast infection.

The Candida fungus will grow roots in the intestinal wall, get stronger, break off and eventually travel to other parts of your body via the bloodstream. Although most women get yeast infections in the vaginal area, they can take hold all over your body. They love to live in dark and moist places; however, they will also show up in the strangest of places such as in your armpit or up under the breasts.

What causes an overgrowth of the Candida fungus? It can be caused by using too may antibiotics or by using some forms of birth control. However, one of the biggest culprits involves eating too much sugar. This pesky little fungus loves sugar, which means that eating a lot of sugary foods will make you more susceptible for getting a Candida yeast infection.

If you want to stop this infection dead in its tracks then eliminate sugar from your diet. Do not provide a food source for the fungus. If it cannot live off of sugar, it will go away eventually. Although there could be other underlying factors that can cause a yeast infection and many of them will be medical related, a sugary diet is one of the main reasons that women suffer from them.

One of the best ways to rid your body of a Candida yeast infection is to eat a better diet and eliminate as many sugar food sources as possible. Start putting more vegetables and veggies into your diet and stop eating and drinking things such as dairy products, white bread, processed foods and sugary desserts. Starve the Candida fungus and watch it gradually release the hold that it has on your body.
