Since yeast infections tend to grow in some of the most private places of our bodies, most of us aren’t as willing to seek treatment for them. Thankfully, there are a lot of yeast infection symptoms that you can use to help identify a yeast infection with. One of those symptoms are yeast infection bumps which appear as raised areas near the infected area.
Can Yeast Infections Cause Bumps?
In short, they can. Often they are in private areas of the body, and they are always accompanied by itching.
However, bumps are not always manifest in a yeast infection and are very often a symptom that manifests itself as part of a yeast infection that has been going on for awhile. Typically, yeast infection bumps are your body’s way of reacting to the waste byproducts of a yeast infection.
By inflaming and breaking down the surrounding skin, the yeast infection is able to spread further into the body and create even more problems.
Identifying If They Are Yeast Infection Bumps
Bumps do not always mean yeast infections. In fact, in a lot of cases, bumps can be indicative of other sexually transmitted diseases such as Herpes.
However, if you have already been experiencing itching, then the appearance of a bump could be a sign of a yeast infection.
Yeast infection bumps may or may not be close together, and may also have an accompanying rash.
Yeast infection bumps also tend to be whitish in color or at least they will appear to have pus inside of them. Don’t try popping them! That can lead to a worst infection or a bacterial infection alongside the yeast infection.

Curing Those Yeast Infection Bumps
So, how do we treat those yeast infections? You can start by trying something like Monistat. Also, your doctor will be willing to prescribe more stout medications than you can get over the counter.
Additionally, some people have reported good results by trying topical tea tree oil application. However, from experience, I know that tea tree oil can burn and may not be the best for everyone.
Yeast Infections Can Be Systemic
Bumps are only a small part of yeast infections. If you have yeast overgrowth in one part of your body, you may also suffer from it in other parts of your body as well.
To prevent further yeast infections you may choose to do a full body cleanse that will remove the yeast flora and create a new, healthy environment that is better balanced and more impervious to yeast growth.
