To me, there are few things worse than yeast infections. They are so difficult to self-diagnose, and they rarely respond to OTC treatments like medicated cremes or pills. When my type 2 diabetes was out of control, I would get yeast infections in the folds of my skin all the time. Nothing I had at home would really stop the itching or the burning. I finally had to get some prescription creme and a fluconazole pill.
I don't know if I've ever experienced the symptoms described in this article, though. I felt like I had a bad rash all the time, but I didn't feel like I had the flu or depression.
