Can My Fungal Infection Lead To A Fever?

Yeast infections are commonly associated with various symptoms, but fever isn’t typically one of them. However, yeast infections can trigger a range of immune dysfunctions. We’ve observed that some individuals, particularly men, can experience symptoms like excessive sweating, feeling flushed, and feeling hot. Such symptoms can often be linked to fermentation processes in the gut.

When discussing fermentation, it involves the interaction between yeast and sugar, leading to the production of gas. This gas production can sometimes result in body heat and odors. In our book, Candida Crusher, we’ve noted the connection between symptoms like bloating, gas, strong sweet cravings, and distinct body odors in the armpits, groin, and feet to fermentation and yeast infections. While heat can be a byproduct of fermentation, it’s important to differentiate it from fever.

While we wouldn’t directly attribute a high fever to a yeast infection, there may be indirect connections due to immune dysfunctions. The exact relationship between fever and yeast infections might not be entirely clear, but it’s more commonly accepted that the sensation of heat in some individuals is more related to fermentation.
