Yeast infection is the infection induced by the fungus Candida albicans. These infections are also called candidiasis. For vaginal yeast infection, an overgrowth of the Candida occurs when there is a reduced presence of healthy bacteria (lactobacilli), which disturbs the normal vaginal flora. This kind of disturbances can happen for many reasons such as weak immune system, pregnancy, antibiotics, uncontrolled diabetes, stress, hormonal imbalance, lack of sleep.
Frequent symptoms include: burning, itching, small or large amounts of vaginal discharge, soreness, pain during sex, rash.
It is of great importance to treat this infection in time, in order to avoid other organs to be infected.
