Anal Candida

Candida are a group of yeast and there are a lot of different species. Not all of them affect humans though, and of those ones that do, Candida albicans is the most common. Our bodies are full of microorganisms inside and out, living on us, sometimes hurting us, sometimes helping us, often doing neither! A small amount of those microorganisms on many people are Candida albicans. You could be perfectly healthy and still have a small population of candida, because at low levels the toxins it releases as waste do not trigger an immune reaction. If these numbers are able to increase it is then we experience symptoms of yeast infections or internal candida overgrowth in the gut. You can have candida anywhere and anal candida is one problem some people have.

What makes anal candida become a problem?
You may have candida already in the anal region, or you could have a genital yeast infection and the candida has spread back from incorrect wiping, or it may have become a problem from the candida in your gut then passed in your stools. Your anal region is the perfect breeding ground for a candida overgrowth, it is moist, dark and warm. If you do not have enough good bacteria, eat a diet too high in sugars, are stressed, or have one or more of a number of other triggers, this gives the fungus an opportunity to multiply.

Treatment of anal candida
The best thing to do if you think you have anal candida is to go see your doctor and get a proper diagnosis, to be sure. Otherwise you may find treatment ineffective because you have incorrectly diagnosed yourself. Then you have a few options to treat it – your doctor may prescribe an anti-fungal medication, you can talk or look in your pharmacy for over the counter anti-fungal treatments, or you can look at natural/alternative options. There are some things you can do at home though to help, and these can also act as a way to prevent an infection in the future.

  • Keep good hygiene practices – wash carefully, and dry by patting rather than rubbing
  • Wear clothes that let your skin breathe and let the air circulate so it does not get overly sweaty there. Cotton is good, loose skirts or pants, avoid nylons, synthetic materials and tight pants.
  • Make sure you wash your hands carefully after you apply any treatment
  • Lose some weight
  • Control your blood sugar levels
  • Eat a healthy and balanced diet
  • Take probiotic supplements
  • Avoid anal intercourse
