The symptoms of a yeast infection can often start out very subtly and by the time you realize how long your symptoms have lingered, it has already spread throughout your body. However, it is first important to verify that your symptoms are related to Candida overgrowth and not Lyme disease, which is also a big problem today.
Know What Candidas Looks Like
Candida is unique from many other health problems because its symptoms vary so much and even severe cases can manifest differently from one person to the next. Fortunately, it differs from Lyme disease and most symptoms are completely dissimilar.
Candida starts because the pH balance in your body has been disturbed. It could be due to the use of antibiotics, a diet heavy in sugar and carbohydrates or simply a long-standing yeast infection. If your prone to yeast infections or that your ears seem to itch more than they should, you could be dealing with a Candida overgrowth that is so bad it has literally infected most of your body, through your bloodstream.
One similarity that you may notice between Lyme disease and Candida is a rash. However, the rash from Candida is usually seen in the “hot spots” of the body, while the rash with Lyme disease appears around where the infected tick bit you. In addition, bloating, irritability and various skin problems, including eczema are often the fault of Candida overgrowth . If you constantly crave sweet, sugary foods, it could easily be the Candida in your body looking for additional nutrition.
When to Worry About Lyme Disease
It is first important to consider that Lyme disease starts when you are bitten by a tick that carries the disease. Although many people get it while they are deep in the woods on a camping trip, you can just as easily contract it in your back yard or from your dog that is carrying fleas and ticks. Roughly seven days after you are bitten, the tick would normally be going away.
If the tick carried Lyme disease, you will probably see a red area that starts to grow around where the bite was. It is important to note that about one in four people who contract Lyme disease do not show that rash.
Instead, the following symptoms are more likely to appear soon after contracting Lyme disease:
• Lack of energy
It is crucial that you do not delay being treated for your Lyme disease. If you do, the illness will typically become harder to treat and your symptoms will get worse. Issues like not being able to move the sides of your face, headaches that are almost overwhelming in intensity and even an irregular heartbeat are not unusual. At least one out of 10 people will deal with lingering symptoms of Lyme disease throughout their lifetime, even with prompt treatment.
In conclusion, Candida and Lyme disease are both serious health problems that negatively impact your health for long periods of time. Regardless, seek appropriate medical care and if you have symptoms of Candida, consider adding an appropriate diet and supplements to restore yourself to normal.
