Candidiasis is a disease that, often causes confusion, or rather misunderstanding. It is caused by an increase in the population of candida, a fungus that every person has and remains at normal levels, provided there is no reason to cause a sudden growth. In the most common case, that is vaginal candidiasis, causes irritation in the vagina, itching and discharge with odor, burning, discomfort and pain during intercourse.
Although almost entirely occur in the genital area, candidiasis may occur elsewhere in the body and ANYONE! From children, babies, people without active sex life, in short, anyone can develop candidiasis and this is one of the confusions that people normally do, because they think it is an STD. No, candidiasis is not transferable, let alone sexually transmitted, it occurs specifically in the body of a person who is in favorable situation for its development, with low immunity, which may be due to several other factors also during pregnancy or use of certain birth control, people with diabetes or prone to diabetes, etc. Candidiasis is a result of body acidity, caused mainly by unhealthy diets we currently have and, another important factor in their development: sugar! The level of blood sugar is key to the pace with which this fungus develops and attacks, as it feeds on sugar. But do not think that now that discovered it, you can no longer eat any candy, because the causes of increased sugar levels are also linked to those already mentioned: use of some contraceptives, pregnancy, diabetes or tendency for the disease.
