Can Thigh Fat Cause Yeast Infections?

There are many things that can cause a yeast infection such as certain foods, side effects of medications, stress, wearing wet clothing, spraying fragrances down their, sweating, hormones, pregnancy and other medical conditions.




 


Overweight people that frequently have yeast infections may not know why. Candidiasis is the most common type of yeast infection in human skin. There are more than 20 species of Candida that exist. The most common is Candida albicans. These fungi live on all surfaces of our bodies and only occasionally cause infection.



 


A fungus infection can occur when wearing wet or sweaty clothing for a extended amount of time. But can having too much thigh fat cause a yeast infection? Added moisture in or around the vagina can cause bacteria to grow.



 


A fungus infection may be odorless, have a fishy smell before or after sex, intense itching and it could appear white or grayish. Any woman is susceptible to this type of bacteria growth. Overweight people are more affected by it because of health issues.



 


Thigh fat issue



A yeast infection occurs in moist areas, so if you have a substantial amount of thigh fat that causes friction when you walk you are at risk. Your inner thighs that holds the weight blocks air from the vagina, then wetness builds up and there goes the fungus growth. The infection can grow in your inner thighs too!



 


To avoid it, try losing some weight. Go to your doctor, ask questions to determine a appropriate weight loss plan for you. If you are not overweight or this does not relate to you, there could be other problems causing a yeast infection.



Did you Know



You can also get a yeast infection in your mouth, underarms, around dentures, nail beds, lower abdomen and beneath other skin folds. These are warm places on the body that moisture holds.



There are treatments for a yeast infection that will permanently cure it. Your doctor may prescribe you a antibiotic or you can go to your local store to purchase a anti-fugal product. You can find also research foods that may cause you to have it as well, so that you can do your best to avoid the embarrassing and uncomfortable condition.
