7 Healthy Habits to Prevent Toenail Fungus
Candida is a yeast, which suggests that it’s a form of fungus. It may live harmlessly within the digestive tract (gut) and epithelial duct. However, if the conditions are right, willdida can multiply and begin to cause symptoms of infection. These infections are usually around the sex organ (vagina and penis), in the mouth or where there are folds of skin. A common name for candida infections is ‘thrush’. Thrush makes the affected area sore and itchy. The skin is usually red and dampish, and small pustules seem. In women, vaginal thrush will cause itching and a white discharge. Oral thrush (in the mouth) most often affects babies and older individuals (particularly if you wear false teeth). It can look like white patches, which leave a red mark if you rub them off.
