So what are the most common candida yeast infection symptoms. Yeast infection symptoms are your body's way of telling you that something is not right. Yeast infection symptoms vary widely depending on the site of infection.
Persistent symptoms should be evaluated by your gynecologist or primary health care provider. Chronic Candidiasis is a systemic yeast infection with a variety of symptoms including fatigue, low energy, muscle aches, headaches and more.

In females a vaginal yeast infection is characterized by a pasty white colored discharge.

If you have ever had a yeast infection you know that it itches, it is or can be a rash, red or white in color, depending on where it is on the body, there is also pain in urination, discharge and sometimes an odor.
Our skin surface is made to act as a barrier to bacteria, but if something breaks that surface; a cut or a scratch; it gives the bacteria a way to get in. In men it is characterized by red patchy sores near the head of the penis near or under the foreskin. If it happens at the skin, it will be called skin yeast infection. The fungi usually live on the surface of the skin but after multiplying and further growth they typically break down the skin causing the appearance of a red flat rash.
