More on Candida
Candida is a negative yeast infection affecting both men and women and can appear in any part of the body such as the underarms, the nails, the mouth, the genitals (including the vagina and the penis) and between the toes. Mouth thrush is where small lesions appear inside the mouth and on the tongue. White patches or cottage-cheese-like lumps appear on the tongue. Mouth thrush is often caused by a weakened immune system so the young and the elderly are at risk. Other variations include nail fungus, penile and the most common vaginal yeast infections. 50 to 75% of all women will have a vaginal yeast infection (often called thrush) during their lifetime. If the level of acidity in the vagina decreases, then too much yeast growth can be the cause.
If you suspect that you are suffering from a candida yeast infection on whatever part of your body, make sure you visit your health practitioner and decided upon a course of treatment, it is important to start such treatment as quickly as possible to prevent the Candida, and bacteria associated with it, finding its way via the blood stream to other parts of the body and possibly causing additional medical problems.
