Candidiasis, also known as a "yeast infection" or VVC, is a common fungal infection that occurs when there is overgrowth of the fungus called Candida

Genital candidiasis is a Candida infection of the mucosa (nonkeratinized epithelium) of the vulva, vagina, and preputial sac of the penis. Infection usually represents overgrowth of colonizing infection rather than arising from exogenous source.



Causes:

Nearly 75% of all adult women have had at least one genital "yeast infection" in their lifetime. On rare occasions, men may also experience genital candidiasis. VVC occurs more frequently and more severely in people with weakened immune systems.



Symptoms:

Women with VVC usually experience genital itching or burning, with or without a "cottage cheese-like" vaginal discharge. Males with genital candidiasis may experience an itchy rash on the penis.
