Fungi of the genus Candida belong toConditionally pathogenic intestinal microflora. This means that they are present on the mucous even in a healthy person, but in certain amounts. Control of the fungal population is carried out by the immune system, which prevents their active reproduction. In violation of the described mechanisms, candidiasis of the intestine develops - the symptoms of this pathology resemble mild forms of dysbiosis, but in severe cases the disease spreads beyond the digestive organs.
Symptoms of non-invasive candidiasis of the intestine in women
Increase in the number of colonies of fungi of the genus CandidaIn the intestine due to prolonged use of antibiotics or other provoking factors is called non-invasive, which has arisen for internal reasons, candidiasis.
For the present form of the disease characterized by clinical manifestations, is very reminiscent of dysbiosis symptoms in women:
- Bloating and flatulence;
- Constipation, followed by diarrhea;
- Periodic abdominal pain;
- Discomfort after eating;
- Deterioration of appetite;
- Dry skin, brittle nails and hair.
In fact, non-invasive pathology is one of the varieties of imbalance in the microflora, so it can be treated with standard techniques.
Characteristic symptoms of invasive candidiasis of the intestine
The type of fungal infection described developsDue to the introduction of microorganisms of the genus Candida into the tissues from the outside, which, upon contact with mucous membranes, become filamentous. This type of pathology is more dangerous than non-invasive, and often provokes many negative consequences.
Specific signs of intestinal candidiasis in women:
- Impurities of mucus and blood clots in feces;
- Strong spastic pain along the bowels;
- Constant bloating;
- Pain during defecation;
- Disorders of stool, alternation of diarrhea and constipation;
- Increase in temperature to subfebrile values;
- False urge to defecate.
Often an invasive lesion spreads andTo other organs. For example, patients complain of clinical manifestations of a fungal infection in the oral cavity, genitals, in the tongue, around the anus.
In advanced cases of candidiasis occursUlceration of the intestinal wall and its subsequent perforation. This leads to inflammation of the serous membranes (peritonitis), and sometimes to internal bleeding, which can lead to sepsis.
