Symptoms include vaginal itching and a thick white discharge that resembles cottage cheese. It occurs when imbalances in the body’s flora disrupt the normal environment of the vagina causing an overgrowth of Candida albicans. Most women will have this problem at some time in their life. Yeast infections are very common among men as well. One of the main reasons why yeast infection spreads at a rapid rate is due to the fact that most people tend to ignore it in the hope that it will disappear on its own.
Yeast overgrowth can be challenging to overcome, so it’s recommended to seek help from an experienced medical practitioner. Infection is caused by an overgrowth of naturally occurring yeast organisms in the genital area.
