Yeast penetrates our cells causing an intracellular infection known as the red form of candida.
This infection is more complicated to cure because you need to take an effective systemic antifungal long term which be able to reach the infected cells. Inside our cells, yeast produce enzymes and metabolites that causes redness, burning, and inflammation.
Are you sure candida can actually live inside our cells? Do you have any scientific confirmation of that?
That would make candida treatment similar to virus treatment, because viruses also live and reproduce inside our cells.
Absolutely sure.! I have read many papers about intracellular candidiasis. Candida Albicans gains cellular penetration after morphing. Other non-morphing candida species also penetrate our cells, for instance candida glabrata.
In the case of C. Albicans, one time inside the cells, it doesn’t growth but adopt a different form to protect itself of the immune system and antifungal drugs. Still, it produces symptoms.
