Multiple yeast infections?

Posted , 6 users are following.

Can someone help, I have the following problems and I don't know if my doctor will know how to treat me.

Sore throat every day: I chew menthol gum and suck on mints to relieve the soreness. I brush my teeth twice every day and the back of my mouth has bumps on it. My palate has been tender as well.

Ear discharge: I get a lot of itching in my ears and when I clean them out there is a fluffy white discharge. There is a lot of ear wax and I'm cleaning my ears of ear wax every day. I don't know why it builds up so quickly.

Vaginal discharge: I'm not sexually active but I have large clumps of discharge in my underwear and it smells like bread. My vagina is sometimes itchy and sore and I can sometimes feel the discharge dibble out.

Nail infections: my toenails become yellow and crumbly and when I pick the discharge out from underneath them it smells a bit cheesy.

Could these all be fungal/yeast infections and do I need to see a doctor about these please? I do have an autoimmune condition so would that have predisposed me to all of these? I am under the care of an endocrinologist but would an immunologist be better suited for these problems? Thank you

    Hello Starla8, you should see your doctor, or if you are due to see your Endocrinologist, then mention it to him.

    You shouldn't constantly clean the wax out of your ear, it is there to protect the inside of your ear.

    If you have oral thrush, then you could try Corsodyl mouthwash until you see your doctor.  

    Why haven't you been to a doctor, what country are you in?

    hi there

    I can only comment on the nail infection; tea tree oil applied twice a day on the nail /infected area will get rid of the fungus maybe take about 4 weeks. Here in Aust it is cheap maybe $5 a small bottle should do the trick.  it is also great for tinea/athletes foot.

    If you have Candidiasis, which is what it sounds like, you probably need a systemic drug now, such as Fluconazole but, you need to consult a doctor

    Hi sounds to me as you have a severe overgrowth of candida which is affecting different parts of your body, try cutting our all white refined foods such as flour, pasta, rice, also sugar which feeds this wretched fungal infection, no yeast  or anything which is containing  sugar or yeast which includes gravie and oxo cubes, private message me for a link to this info.

    First, get to a healthfood store and buy good quality probiotics...these are the good bacteria in the intestines that are criticial to good digestion and good health and they keep candida yeast from getting out of control. Yours has gotten out of control and is running rampant around your entire body. Antibiotics destroy these good bacteria. Red meat,chicken, eggs, fish, and pork that is not organically grown, has antibiotics in it, which has the same bad effect. Eat ONLY ORGANIC. And NO FAST FOOD EVER...it is very toxic to the body. Next, this may sound difficult but you can do it (I'm addicted to sugar but I was finally able to do it)....stop eating all refined sugars and sugary foods, sodas, soft drinks, and simple carbohydrates like bread, pasta, pancakes, etc....this is because yeast and fungus thrive on sugar. The best way (possibly only way) to kill fungus, yeast and candida in the body is to STARVE IT. I didn't really believe this at first, but when I became so desperate when nothing else was helping me, I tried it, and in 2 weeks I noticed a major improvement. It may take a week or so to gradually wean yourself off sugar and carbs, but you will find lots of other substitute foods with low sugar and low carb counts. However, do not substitue artificial sweeteners like saccarine, aspartame, or splenda, since they can be harmful in your situation. Initially you do have to limit consumption of fruits and fruit juices also. But this is not a permanent diet...it is specifically focused on starving/killing the fungi/yeast/candida in your body. After you get well, you can begin to introduce a little of these foods back into your diet, but start developing the habit of avoiding these foods as much as possible.

     I don't think I am allowed to provide links to websites here but if you go online and search for herbal remedies and alternative therapies for yeast infections, candida, and fungal infections, you'll find some answers there. A naturopathic/holistic health care professional can be a very helpful coach as well. 

    At first it seemed awfully difficult to give up my beloved sugars and carbs, but when I got tempted and then thought about feeding those disgusting fungi in my body, I would turn away.

    Bumps in the mouth...this could be beta carotene deficiency or b-complex deficiency. Definitely see a naturopathic MD who can advise you nutritionally.

    I hope this helps.

      Thanks for your reply. I have contacted a naturopathic MD but she charges a lot for an initial consultation. I'm unemployed so I'm trying to keep costs down at the moment. There is a homeopathic hospital local to me so that is one possible idea...not sure if a homeoapthic hospital will be able to help though.

      I have no health insurance...they give discounted rates.....hospitals have benevolence funds for those who are unemployed or low income.. I needed expensive tests...the fund paid it all. Just ask . They will help.
