Skin rash

How many times did you experience the outbreak of rash on your skin? The number of people who have never experience the rash is considerably small as compared to those who were unfortunate to have to deal with it. When they notice this skin disorder, they start to dwell upon the cause of it. Almost all skin diseases are manifested through some kind of rash and therefore, there are numerous types of skin rash. However, each skin disorder has its own specific rash according to which the disorders is diagnosed.

Yeast infection

The yeast infections also trigger the incidence of rash. The yeast is a type of fungi that causes the infection when overproduced. In the majority of cases, Candida albicans is the type of the fungi which is the culprit for the development of a yeast infection. Yeast infections affect men, as well as women, and they can appear on any part of the body which is damp and warm, but they also can expand throughout the body when they reach the bloodstream.

The infection caused by Candida is named candidiasis. The most common trigger for the incidence of candidiasis is lack of good bacteria in the intestines, which happens when one consumes a lot of antibiotics due to the treatment of certain medical condition. Furthermore, weak immune system is also a potential factor for candidiasis since the amount of Candida cannot be kept within normal levels. Constant stress, contraceptive pills and sugary foods are also some of the factors that contribute to the development of a yeast infection.

When the yeasts affect the skin, they do it wherever there are folds, which is why skin yeast infection can appear in the armpits, in the groin region and under breasts. Furthermore, the yeast infections between the toes and under the skin folds of the stomach in obese people are also quite often.

This kind of infection causes certain symptoms that make this infection different from some other skin disorder. When it occurs just locally, the rash appears. It is red or brown in color and pustule may be present. The rash is also itchy and somewhat crusty. The person with yeast infection may feel pain and a burning sensation in the part of the body which is affected by this type of infection.

There are certain antifungal lotions and creams that can be bought almost in every store, but they only treat the symptoms of yeast infection. Therefore, many experts recommend the holistic approach in treating this skin disorder, which addresses the causative factor and not the symptoms.
