Recurrent candidiasis was what led Amarilis, a great friend, whose testimony is here in this blog discovering your own serology. What many don't know, yet, is that she was in a preoperative, and I don't remember what the surgery would be for, and between the blood tests the result appeared HIV positive! And, for the sake of saying everything, she was worried because she was suffering from something apparently without a solution…

… Recurrent Candidiasis…

… .This theme has already been discussed here, but I've been looking around, and I saw that this text is better than the previous one and that led me to translate it!

Main points in Recurrent Candidiasis

  • Candidiasis (candidiasis) is a common fungal infection, treated with antifungal drugs.
  • Mild candidiasis in the mouth is relatively common in people with HIV.
  • Good oral hygiene can reduce the risk of oral thrush.
Well, Candida is a group of common fungi that live on the skin and in the mouth. And yes, they are normally controlled by the immune system. However, if your immune system is weakened (this is not a symptom of HIV or AIDS disease), Candida it can grow on mucous membranes (the linings of body passages) or other parts of the body, causing symptoms known as candidiasis, candidiasis or candidiasis. However, HIV negative people can develop candidiasis when their immune systems are temporarily depressed by factors such as stress, smoking ou alcohol or medical conditions like diabetes.

Antibiotics can FACILITATE Candida proliferation

And so, keep in mind that if people are taking antibiotics they can, as will be explained in the video, have episodes of recurrent candidiasis, because the antibiotic temporarily kills some of the harmless bacteria that inhabit the body, and that would fight the proliferation of candida, creating an imbalance that allows the Candida Take your place. In this way and also, the use of a type of medication called inhaled corticosteroid (used to treat asthma and other conditions) can have the same effect. Women generally have candidiasis in the vagina, while men have it manifested under the foreskin or the head of the penis, causing itching, burning and / or pain. And note that women are at increased risk of candidiasis when they are pregnant. And yet, you see: Candidiasis can be transmitted from mother to baby during labor. It is also possible to have candidiasis in the mouth (oral candidiasis) or on the skin.

Even without Immune Deficiency (AIDS)

Thus, recurrent candidiasis can appear, among people with HIV, in the mouth, and this is relatively common, even with a relatively high CD4 cell count (above 500). Women with HIV appear to have vaginal candidiasis more often than women who do not have HIV. However, candidiasis becomes more common with lower CD4 cell counts below 500 which, in theory, would define the “AIDS picture”

😠 Possibility of being AIDS is not Complete Certainty! Having recurrent candidiasis does not prove you have AIDS! 😠

Recurrent infections can be a sign of HIV disease progression. Being on effective HIV treatment will prevent further damage to your immune system. And, rest assured, it will lessen the likelihood that you will have serious problems with candidiasis infections, as well as other opportunistic diseases. Please note and always keep in mind that flu, cold, headache, itching and the damn "rash" are not conclusive symptoms of HIV or AIDS infection. Similarly, even this “The seroconversion syndrome” it is very nonspecific, and does not provide the necessary accuracy! Understand, and understand well, that the Seroconversion Syndrome has symptoms identical to any viruses! Hell!!!!!

Symptoms (I hate this word)

In the gums, tongue, inner face and / or upper throat (oropharyngeal candidiasis), the Candida It grows in white clumps that can be scraped off or cause red spots called erythema. Vaginal candidiasis can cause a discharge that can be thick and yellowish white or light and watery. It may sting when you urinate (pee). Men can have genital candidiasis without symptoms. If you have symptoms, they can include:
  • irritation, burning, itching, redness or red spots under the foreskin or on the tip of your penis
  • a white, curd-like secretion under the foreskin. You may also notice an unpleasant smell.
When I went to live at the support house Brenda Lee, who saved my life, I had two “gifts” from the environment: an early diagnosis of Active Tuberculosis and a very long and unpleasant series of recurrent candidiasis. The other support house ...

Recurrent Candidiasis and Hell on Earth

Well, it was within it, an organization of the Catholic Church, that I got to know Hell on Earth! Recurrent candidiasis didn't leave me anymore until I, for thirty thousand reasons, decided to live on the streets, where, at least, I could defend myself! Candidiasis on the skin can cause a red, painful and itchy rash, which can increase in size and cause a white or yellow curd type discharge.

Diagnosis of recurrent candidiasis

It is easy for a doctor or nurse to diagnose candidiasis in the mouth or esophagus by looking at the affected areas. Doctors can take a tissue sample or a cotton swab to test the fungus when other parts of the body are affected. They can also have blood tests to look for other conditions associated with candidiasis, if necessary.

Candidiasis can be treated with antifungal drugs.

There are several medications in the form of (systemic) pills available. See your doctor!

You can also get some antifungal medications in other ways, such as a liquid solution for recurrent oral candidiasis, creams for skin or nail infections and creams and pessaries for vaginal candidiasis.

You can buy these antifungal treatments over the counter at street pharmacies. However, there may be interactions with some anti-HIV drugs. Therefore, talk to a doctor or pharmacist before taking them. It is not recommended to take antifungal tablet treatments if you are pregnant.

Some strains of Candida become resistant to *****, especially among people with low count CD4. Or that they take it for a long time or several times in quick succession

Get vaccinated! Vaccination is not an evil. The evil is not to get vaccinated

Say no to self-medication! Get vaccinated! Who saw the human drama that is polio knows well what is the lack of a vaccine!

Antifungal drugs can cause side effects like nausea, vomiting e diarrhea. Some women think that the use of a common moisturizer in the affected area helps to relieve symptoms. "If candidiasis persists, the right drugs will be effective in preventing it in people with low CD4 counts." Although is not a sexually transmitted infection, there is a small risk of transmitting candidiasis to a partner during sex; therefore, it is advisable to avoid sexual intercourse until the infection is cleared. Topical treatments, such as creams and pessaries, can also damage latex condoms; therefore, be careful if you are using these creams on the vagina or penis.


If you had candidiasis before starting HIV treatment, it is quite possible that the problem will disappear as your CD4 count increases and thus your immune system becomes better at fighting infections. However, keep in mind, however, that recurrent candidiasis may be part of your life! Take care If your candidiasis persists, antifungal drugs prescribed by your doctor may be effective in treating people with low CD4 counts. Good personal hygiene will help you recover from candidiasis. Avoid scented soaps, shower gels, underwear or tights (!!!) may reduce the risk of developing candidiasis. Dry your genital area properly after washing, as candidiasis blooms in conditions of higher humidity. Wearing cotton underwear and baggy clothes can help. Avoid deodorants or vaginal showers to avoid vaginal candidiasis. Good oral hygiene can reduce the risk of oral thrush.

Complications of Recurrent Candidiasis

Esophageal candidiasis (candidiasis in the esophagus) is a more serious condition. This form of candidiasis can make it painful if you eat. People with severely damaged immune systems may have a complication of candidiasis, called invasive candidiasis. If you have a low CD4 count and become ill during a bout of candidiasis (for example, if you have a high temperature, are sick or have a headache), see a doctor immediately.

And it was not within a "comfort zone"! This is a story that only I have to tell!

I was the first individual, a CPF, not a CNPJ to, in quotes, “Slap my face”!

For all that I lived, it all happened in a period still troubled by prejudice and, yes, there were prices to be paid.

The currency has always been that of social exclusion and I have even hesitated between continuing or not!

The great “IT” of all this is that without this work, I would have nothing left but leisure and I would certainly not endure it. I have a need to be productive.

We are Borg!

If not bored by the empty hours, at least by suicide due to the absolute lack of purpose that my life would have and the terrible impression of parasitosis that would come to affect me. So, I couldn't stop.

I had the opportunity to accomplish many things and, on the other hand, I missed several opportunities to do more, with a deeper and better reach.

Not everything is as desired. Let it rain (Guilherme Arantes)!

Hi! Guys, thanks for getting this far! Your attention and interest is our greatest interest, we work here, me and mara, in order to inform you, make some clarity in some nebulous points of "all of this".

However, we lack financial resources.

If you like work, if you are able to help and want to help, often the cost of a silly day-to-day for us, will certainly make a difference because, we know, the hummingbird, carrying water on the tip of your beak will make all the difference in the effort to put out the forest fire!

Think about it!

Below are some resources to facilitate support!
