In cutaneous candidiasis, the skin is infected with candida fungi. This type of infection is fairly common. It can involve almost any skin on the body, but most often it occurs in warm, moist, creased areas such as the armpits and groin. The fungus that most often causes cutaneous candidiasis is Candida albicans. A yeast intolerance generally has less severe symptoms than a yeast allergy, with symptoms largely limited to gastrointestinal symptoms. A yeast allergy can affect the entire body, leading to skin reactions, changes in mood, and widespread body pain. Allergic reactions can be dangerous, and can cause long-term damage to the body. In a true allergy, your immune system is responding to a foreign substance that is not typically harmful to your body. There are several tests available to confirm allergies to yeast or to other foods. These include: Skin prick test: A small drop of the suspected allergen is placed on the skin and pushed through the first layer of skin with a small needle. Intradermal skin test: A syringe is used to inject the suspected allergen into the tissue beneath the skin (also called the dermis). Blood or RAST test: This test measures the amount of the immunoglobin E (IgE) antibody in the blood. A high level of IgE specific to an allergen source is likely indicative of an allergy.
No special preparation is needed for Allergy Candida Albicans Fungus. Inform your doctor if you are on any medications or have any underlying medical conditions or allergies before undergoing Allergy Candida Albicans Fungus. Your doctor depending on your condition will give specific instructions.
