Yeast infection symptoms

Posted by hotfooted @hotfooted, Mar 14, 2019

After reading about chlaymidia issues, which I've been dealing with for a couple of years now, I am wondering if I might have a yeast infection. I have developed slight burning and itching on the vulva recently.. I recently took cephelina (sp) a penicillin med to treat the chlaymidia and the discharge has stopped for now. This med worked for me once before when my dentist prescribed it before working on a tooth. It kept me free of discharge for about 6 months, but then it came back. I told my doctor and he prescribed it for me this time. I'm an old lady and am surprised to be dealing with this kind of issue at this stage of my life. My husband and I stopped sexual activity shortly after the chlaymidia diagnosis in the beginning. The only trauma that ever put me in hospital was about 4 years ago when I had bad sepsis diagnosed as kidney infection. Thank God, the doctor at urgent care sent me straight to ER. It was a close call for me..

@gardeningjunkie The triglycerides love sugar that makes the count go high Eliminate the sugar and down they come along with yeast as you know . Sugar is our enemy But the FDA doesn't seem to care as they are bought by the soda industry and others. We have to be out own advocate and research for ourselves. Internet is great for this .

I did not know that about the relationship between sugar and triglycerides, thanks for sharing. My husband, even with type 2 diabetes, grabs a few mini pieces of candy after each meal and each night he has dessert. I love to cook and bake but don't eat the sweets anymore so just make them for others. His diabetes is under control because Metformin controls it, but I wonder how long it will work because he hasn't changed his eating habits since he went from pre-diabetes to diabetes 2 years ago

@gardeningjunkie My husband was a diabetic he took insulin finally. But he liked his Apple Pie and cinnamon ice cream I ate half of it but that was a treat only occassionaly Its hard for a diabetic to watch his sugar intake. Was for my hubby. Yeast thrives on sugar and so do triglycerides
