This is Dr. David

not all yeast infections of the esophagus can be explained.

yeast like to grow in dark warm environments.

also if there is a lack of good bacteria like if you have taken antibiotics, this can allow yeast to grow

if you have suppression of your immune system, don't get enough sleep, or have a poor diet and poor immune system, this can allow yeast to grow as well.

taking steroid pills for a long period of time can suppress your immune system and allow yeast to grow in your esophagus.

did you have an upper endoscopy which found yeast in your esophagus?

let me know if you have other questions.
