Yeast infection is caused by the overgrowth of a type of yeast known as candida. It is usually the Candida albicans which cause the infection. Small amounts of this yeast are normally present in our bodies. Certain medications and other health problems can lead to an overgrowth of the yeast which particularly thrive and breed in the warm and moist areas of the body. The most affected areas are the mouth, genitals, skin, throat and blood.
When the yeast infects the mouth, the infection is known as oral candidiasis and if it penetrates the bloodstream it is called invasive candidiasis. Men and women both can get genital yeast infection. In women it causes a lot of itching and burning in the vagina, soreness and redness in the vaginal area and a white discharge that is full of small clumps. In men it causes a red rash on the penis and burning and itching on the tip of the penis.
