What is Vaginal Candidiasis?
The Vaginal candidiasis is a common infection caused by an overgrowth of candida fungus located in the vulvovaginal area. This fungus is present in the body in small quantities, however, when a imbalance, such as changes in the normal acidity of the vagina, in the microbiota or changes in hormonal balance, Candida tends to multiply. and at that moment the first symptoms of Candidiasis appear. It is not a serious disease, but rather it can be considered annoying due to the itching it generates.
Yeast candida albicans is normally found in small amounts in different parts of the body, such as the vagina, mouth, digestive tract and skin. It is normally harmless and does not cause any symptoms. A bacterium known as lactobacillus acidophilus which is present in large quantities in the vagina, maintains control over this yeast and other organisms. When the balance of these micro-organisms is disrupted for any reason, it can cause yeast to grow and cause irritation.
Causes of Vaginal Candidiasis
The continued treatment with antibiotics and even obesity. are also associated with an increased risk of contracting Candidiasis. On the other hand, the candida albicans can be transmitted sexually, which does not mean that the disease develops; the fungus transmitted by this route is in the same growth condition, or not, as the fungus already present on the woman's genitals.
Most women will experience vulvovaginal yeast infection at some point in their lives and around five percent may experience it four or more times in a year. This Recurrent vaginal yeast infections are common in women with weak immune systems or diabetes.although it can affect the entire female population.
