Candidiasis

Candidiasis is an infection caused by a yeast-like fungus called Candida albicans. It can infect the mouth, vagina, skin, stomach, and urinary tract. About 75% of women will get a vaginal yeast infection during their lifetime, and 90% of all people with HIV/AIDS develop Candida infections. Oral infections, called oral thrush, are most common in infants, elderly people, and those with a weakened immune system.
