I have a couple of questions I hope that someone here can help with about cleansing yeast and its potential side effects. I have a yeast overgrowth happening on my underarms currently, and wonder if this is one way that the yeast is being flushed from my body because my sweat glands are now allowed to be active since I've been using a crystal deoderant for months. If so, does anyone know if I need to cease using the deoderant for now, until it clears up?
Also, while yeast is being cleansed out, will I have an increase in yeast symptoms?
Last, can I pass this along to my fiance, even if I don't have an active vaginal yeast infection? Should we use condoms during this time to avoid that? And how can we tell if he develops a yeast infection? (I'll be honest, I know nothing of male symptoms of a yeast infection.)
I'm currently using a yeast cleanse, as well as making even further diet changes to avoid creating more yeast, beyond being gluten-free, lactose-free, and (cane/refined) sugar-free. I've always had trouble with yeast overgrowth, and have known about it for years.
