About

A yeast infection is a common fungal infection caused by a group of 60-70 microscopic yeasts (a type of fungi) - of which the most common is Candida albicans, which lives in the bowel but can easily be transferred from the anus to thevagina;

Candida albicans resides in various moist parts of ourbodies – where it is normally controlled by native bacteria and by the bodys immune system

Small amounts of problem-free yeast are often carried on skin and mucous membranes – E.g.mouth, throat, gut, vagina (found in 25% of women usually without symptoms), near the anus, and in warm, damp skin folds.

Yeast can infect many parts of the body - causing localized effects, such as oral or vaginal thrush, or or it can develop and have even more serious systemic effects:
