Yeast infection and hemorrhoids at the same time! What to do? Should you panic?

To maintain the specifics straight, piles and candidiasis are Two completely diverse ailments. One will not trigger the other, however these might happen at the same time.

To keep the facts straight,Guest Posting hemorrhoids and yeast infection are 2 entirely different conditions. One does not cause the other, although these may occur simultaneously. Sometimes, symptoms may seem the same and interrelated because of the proximity of the affected tissues.

Causes of yeast infection

The exact cause of yeast infection is still unknown. Factors that cause symptoms to appear are known, though. Diabetes, hormonal imbalance and pregnancy are some of the main triggers. Certain medications can also cause symptoms to appear.

Causes of hemorrhoids

Dilation and distension of the anal and rectal veins is mainly caused by constant chronic pressure. Common reasons for the pressure include the following:


Constipation produces pressure in 2 ways. One fecal matter that overstays within the colon can put undue pressure on the colon, specifically on the rectal muscles. This can impede normal blood flow within the rectal veins. Also, feces in constipation are hard and difficult o expel. As it passed through the colon, it irritates the mucosal linings, which further supports the development of venous distension. Also, because stools are hard and difficult to pass out of the colon, straining is often necessary. This would cause increased abdominal pressure as well as force a lot of blood towards the veins in the lower portion of the colon. Blood rushes towards the veins. Straining increases pressure in the abdominal region, which places strain on the terminal portion of the colon. This strain prevents the blood from returning to the main circulation. Blood pools within the veins, where it exerts pressure against the walls of the veins. The longer the blood stays, the more pressure it applies, and the more likely the venous walls will eventually lose their elasticity and become distended. Veins are naturally less elastic than arteries and are naturally more prone to distention. Also, straining causes the venous walls to weaken because of too much blood flow that it was naturally designed to handle.


Gas trapped in the digestive tract is also a likely cause of hemorrhoids. As it accumulates, it produces pressure that presses down on the pelvic organs such as the rectum and anus. This same pressure can also weaken the walls of the veins and become distended and dilated.


The growing fetus can place too much pressure on the adjacent tissues such as the anus and the rectum, which supports the formation of distended and dilated veins.

What to do in yeast infection + hemorrhoids

Itchiness is the main common symptom that these 2 health problems share. If these 2 problems are simultaneously present, the most important thing to do is to keep the perineal area clean. Maintain good hygiene. After toileting, wipe the area gently with cotton toilet paper. Avoid rubbing the area too harshly. If possible, wipe the genitals and the anal area using separate wipes or toilet paper. Yeast can be transferred into the already compromised mucosal lining of the rectum and anus, which can be a huge risk for infections.

Also, keep the area clean. Avoid moisture but avoid dryness as well. Moist areas will promote more yeast growth while dryness would promote further irritation and bleed in the hemorrhoids.

Most importantly, seek a doctor’s advice for proper and separate treatment of the yeast infection and the dilated veins.
