Candida Albicans is a type of yeast that lives in the human gut and digestive tract. When present in high numbers, it can cause many symptoms, ranging from mild bloating to a major infection. To get rid of Candida Albicans, there are several treatment methods and regimes available.
Sterilization is the most effective method for killing Candida Albicans and yeast spores in your body. This can be achieved through either taking an oral medication or by having a surgical procedure (known as an ‘azole hypersensitivity reaction’) where high levels of acid are introduced into the vagina.
How does sterilization work?
The main active ingredient within many antibiotics – called azoles – has antibacterial activity against Candida Albicans. These can be used for both oral and topical forms, giving a one-two punch at the correct killing of these organisms.
Side effects from some common antibiotics include an upset stomach, nausea/vomiting, trembling, abnormal heartbeat or fast pulse rate and uneven heartbeats ( tachycardia ), tiredness or dizziness ( fatigue ) which are caused by the use of different medications to treat low blood glucose levels.
How do azole medications work?
Azoles are used to treat people with recurrent yeast infections. The medication kills both Candida Albicans and the fungus which causes thrush, a type of fungal infection that occurs on the lips, mouth or in between toes (or elsewhere).
It is caused by an overgrowth of certain types of fungi – usually Candida albicans, sometimes Candida glabrata and it produces thick, whitish or yellow-white patches on the skin.
There are four main forms of treatment – oral (Tablets), vaginal gel, cream type and injection method that helps to fight these infections in breast milk as well as other body parts such as the vagina. However, some people become resistant to azoles over time meaning they will require a change for their medication; this problem is called azole resistance.
Tablet form of anti-fungal tablets, orally disintegrating tablet (ODT) can be taken at home; it is not highly recommended for children under age 5 and adolescents suffering from vaginal thrush because they require a specific dosage and special attention when taking them which was explained here in this article.
This type of treatment starts slowly to allow your body time to adjust – simply take the pill with a full glass of water and as prescribed with your healthcare provider. If you miss any doses, do not take two or three at one time.
Yeast infection is caused by the overgrowth of fungi in your body; so always wash well to remove all traces even after swimming. The next step would be to use antibacterial cream (eardrops) on affected parts that can also be bought relatively cheaply from a pharmacist.
