What is candidiasis?

Candidiasis is a pathology characterized by the presence of the fungus Candida Albicans in the genital area. It is one of the most common problems in the intimate life of women.

The vagina has its own microbial flora, that is, hundreds of microorganisms inhabit the vagina without causing infection or specific symptoms. Among them we find the fungi and they maintain a balance among themselves in order to live. However, sometimes an imbalance occurs generating infections. This imbalance or imbalance in the amount of vaginal yeast tends to occur just before, during and just after menstruation.

Although candidiasis is not contagious during sexual intercourse, it is true that some men may experience symptoms such as rash, itching or slight itching of the penis after sexual contact with an infected woman. Because of this, it is important that the man also follows a treatment.
