Candida Related Complex is not a contagious condition. However the genital yeast can be contagious for some. east does not become a problem for us just because someone else who is having a problem keeping their yeast population under control kisses us or makes love to us. It is a disease that I do not see as contagious. Genital yeast is different and it can be passed back and forth causing troublesome topical issues but this problem does not then travel into the rest of the body. You may have yeast or fungus in the body and then develop it in the genital area but I do not believe that it works the other way around.
We all have candida albicans and other common yeast living in us already. It is our own immune weakness, drug treatment, diet, lifestyle, etc that make us susceptible to it –allowing it to grow out of control Any mobile yeast that one can be exposed to through contact with someone with severe CRC, would be cellular yeast as the really aggressive, problematic, fungal yeast, can’t be transmitted through your body fluids. The cellular yeast wouldn’t be a problem unless one is already succumbing to CRC and in that case, I cannot imagine that the few yeast cells that could be passed on through physical contact could make much of a negative difference.
A man with genital yeast can pass it on to his partner in the form of vaginal or bladder yeast problems and vice versa. Using contaminated towels or having genital skin contact with contaminated bedding can pass some genital yeast to another person. Using vinegar to wash intimate laundry can help to kill yeast on the fabric.
An individuals total inner health is often referred to as their bodys terrain. If the terrain is strong and healthy, then pathogens like candida yeast will not be able to take over. If however, beneficial bacteria levels are low and other body systems are weak, then an intestinal infestation of candida can occur.
If either of you or both of you are experiencing recurring genital yeast, you may wish to use condoms to prevent re-infecting each other.
If a man has genital yeast, he can display redness, a rash, a discharge or bladder irritation. And sometimes it is not that evident. Your MD can do a swab for a man as he can for a woman.
