I developed a yeast infection just about 2-3 weeks ago on my penis and anus. I think some levels of bacteria and fungus has been building up in my body. I have never had a yeast infection before in my life and was healthy as can be (aside from crippling anxiety, which is now strangely not as bad). I don’t get any “gut” pains whenever I am anxious anymore.
Just to preface this, in March I was at the urologist for an issue with a UTI. I believe I may have had on and off UTI’s, but this one in March was really bad.
I should also add than in January or February, I went to the pediatrist with an issue with both of my big toes. They had a fungal nail infection in both nails, and I also developed ingrown nails in the same places on each of my big toes at the same time. I assume that some hormonal fluctuation probably caused the ingrown nails. The fungal infection in my toes has supposedly cleared up now though.
Just a few days ago, I went to the urologist as I said, and he said I had a yeast infection on my penis and supplied me Nystatin topical cream with cortisone. It is very slowly working. I also discovered that it is also on my anus, as it itches intermittently and has a weird almost cheese like smell within a few hours, even after cleaning myself.
I’m wondering if anyone else has successfully treated this infection with Nystatin tablets in addition to topicals? For the time being, I’m working on changing my diet so the yeast does not have any sugars to feed off of. I think that reducing carbs as much as possible should eventually kill it.
From what I’ve read, Candida is a very touchy subject, but given that I’ve never had a fungal infection before it seems PFS has probably screwed up my gut now, and some yeast or fungus (candida?) is now flourishing in my body. Fungus can interfere with bodily functions and signals in the brain and body.
