What is Chronic Yeast Infection?

There are many different kinds of yeast infection and sometimes you heard people saying they got chronic yeast infection. What exactly is chronic yeast infection? It is an infection that is present for a very long period of time or possibly the rest of your life.

People who are suffering from chronic yeast infection should take extra precaution and care on their health. It could mean a poor indication in their health. Normally, they have weak immune system that made their yeast infection difficult to treat. Another reason could be due to high consumption of sugar. There are many cases that diabetic patients are also suffering from chronic yeast infection as their diet always have high sugar level. It was because of this reason, yeast continue to live, making it difficult to get rid of.

There are also severe cases that yeast have invaded their internal organs like liver or even urinary tract. People who are suffering from this kind of yeast infection is called systematic yeast infection. Although this case is rare but it should not be overlooked. People who are suffering from this problem often feel lethargic, giddy or even gastrotestinal problems etc.

Sometimes chronic yeast infection started because of very mild infection. Many people find it embarrassed and reluntant to see doctor. They always thought that yeast infection can disappear on its own. It may be true that some people got it cured on its own, however people who are not so lucky have their recurrence again (just like me!) and got their condition much more worse than the first time.

My advice to all yeast infection sufferers is NOT TO IGNORED IT. If you have been trying many different methods or too embarrassed to see a doctor. You may like to cure your infection in natural ways. Have a good change in your dietary plan too! :)
