Can A Yeast Infection Cause Swollen Lymph Nodes
Good day, Eric Bakker here again with anotherquestion, a frequently asked question regarding yeast infections. Does yeast infection cause swollen lymph nodes? Swollen lymph nodes are a result of a problemwith your immune system. There could be many reasons why you have swollen lymph nodes,and where you have the swollen lymph nodes. A common place is the cervical lymph nodesaround the neck. You can also have swollen lymph nodes in the groin, around the armpits,so there's various areas where you can commonly get them. Cervical ones are quite common withpeople.
My questions to you would be do you get nightsweats with these swollen lymph nodes? Do you have altered appetite or weight loss?First thing that you would do is to get a blood test done. Have a complete blood countand have all the white cell parameters, in particular, to see if there's any infectiousdisease going on. Swollen lymph nodes can also commonly occurwith food allergies, I've noticed. Food intolerances or food allergies can occur there. Wheneveryou've got a weakened immune system, you're going to be more prone to a yeast infection.I would not believe that a yeast infection directly causes swollen lymph nodes, but theywould occur as a secondary consequence to
a weakened immunity. Swollen lymph nodes need checking out. Therecould be many different types of problems. You could've picked up an acute herpes problem.It could be something even like Leukemia, so it's very important for you, particularlyif it's a recurring problem, you've had it for a long time, is to get checked out carefullyby your for swollen lymph nodes to see exactly what this problem is. In many cases, however, these things are selflimitingand acute and they disappear. I've seen it occur with bee stings. I've seen it occurwith food allergies. So, you know, get checked
out first and don't get too worried unlessyou've had a problem with this for many years. These things often occur. So to answer your question, I don't thinkit causes swollen lymph nodes as such, but there may well be a relationship between themboth. Thank you for your question.
