In this category you will find products for Candida treatment and some hygiene products.
The vaginal walls are continually producing secretions necessary to provide lubrication, to cleanse the vagina and to maintain the proper acidity to prevent infection. Women who like to shower should do so with products that are unscented. It is not normal to have a vagina that smells like a field of flowers and can you imagine the chemicals used to create that "fragrance" are in fact not good for you at all. If you have a 'strange' odor from your vagina, see a gynecologist!
Candida is an infection of the skin by the yeast-like fungus Candida albicans.
The human body contains a vast number of different micro-organisms, including fungi, both on the inside and on the outside.
Some of these micro-organisms are beneficial. Others have no effect until either there is a change in their nature or there is a decrease in the body's resistance to them. This allows one type to grow excessively and leads to an infection - a fungal infection of the skin.
Candida albicans can infect all areas of the skin as well as the mucous membranes but it prefers warm moist places.
Infections by Candida albicans, especially the variants that are found in the mucous membranes or the genitals, are contagious. They can be spread from person to person by direct contact, by sexual contact and indirectly by damp towels or flannels.
