Yeast Infections or Candidiasis

Yeast Infections or Candidiasis

Our skin is usually colonized with many bacteria and fungi. While the natural balance is intact, no infection or irritation occurs. If for some reason (immune deficiency, medication, warm and moist milieu, etc.) the balance has been disrupted, some of the “good” bugs become enemies and cause infection when the chance of overgrowth is given.
One good example is a yeast infection. The human skin and body is colonized with yeast, especially Candida albicans. A genital yeast infection, also referred to as candidiasis, may be caused by “over cleansing”, use of medications such as antibiotics, or just disrupted PH circumstances.
Candidiasis, or yeast infection, may occur in many areas of the human body, including the mouth, the throat, and ano-genital area.
