Candida is a yeast infection of the mouth, vagina or skin. Most cases of candida are caused by a type of yeast called the Candida Albicans. This yeast occurs naturally in and on the human body. When something upsets the balance between bacteria in the body and the candida yeast, candida can grow into a yeast infection. Candida is not an STD and has nothing to do with poor hygiene.
Candida infection of the mouth is called thrush. Thrush commonly occurs in infants and appears as white patches inside the baby’s mouth. Vaginal candida infections are very common among women and cause problems such as itching, redness and excessive white vaginal discharge.
