Yeast Allergy: Causes, Symptoms, and Treatment

An allergy is an abnormal acquired sensitivity to a given substance. This may include environmental triggers, pollens and drugs etc. People may be allergic to yeast. Yeast exists all over our body and in our digestive tract which is also known as candida; it is believed that in some people the overgrowth of that yeast triggers the immune system to react and produce yeast allergy. However anything in connection to this has not been proved.  Yeast allergy can occur from any substance that is used on skin and has yeast or any foodstuff that has yeast contents.

Yeast allergy can be identified with the help of certain common symptoms. Some of the common symptoms of yeast allergy that have been observed along the years are skin rashes, eczema, headaches, fatigue, lack of concentration and sometimes change food pattern, sleeplessness etc. This needs medical supervision. You cannot ignore the situation.

Candida albicans is yeast and fungus. This is present in small amount in the intestinal track. When in small amount this does not cause any harm. When this is found in large amounts it can have serious implications on your health. The possible cause of yeast allergy may be antibiotics, birth control pills, low vitamin D, etc. This may also cause food allergy. Now there can be viscous circle. Both food allergy and yeast allergy can promote one another.

Identifying an allergy is most difficult thing, firstly. Secondly it is ever harder to connect that the allergy is due to any yeast reaction. It is very hard to determine these symptoms and thus you must be alert enough to know what is happening to your body. If the symptoms match with that of yeast allergy that you must seek help and visit a doctor to get rid of yeast allergy. This in turn affects the consumption of sugar and leads to nutritional deficiencies.

Yeast allergy can cause you multiple symptoms like constipation, joint pain, dizziness, anxiety, fatigue, bladder infections etc. This problem is also known as candidiasis hypersensitivity. According to statistics, out of every 3 Americans 1 American suffers from yeast allergy. Yeast produces toxins and this leads to weakening of immune system.

Because very little is know about yeast allergy there are very limited types of treatments and prevention. The most commonly applied type of treatment is a radical change in diet where yeast is excluded from the diet in order to bring down the level in the body. Yeast grows naturally in our body, fact that we cannot stop or control for that matter but we can try and restrict as much as possible its intake in food.

Women are the most common victims of yeast allergy, which usually over grows in the vagina and which can be treated locally and orally with drugs. Yeast infection in women can be triggered by another existing allergy such as, milk and/or other food items. Yeast allergies can be very painful and often long term if not treated aggressively as soon as it occurs especially in the case of vaginal yeast infections. Watching carefully what you eat and especially if you are aware that you have some type of allergies will help you detect an allergy when it occurs and thus, be able to follow a treatment and find relief.
