How To Treat Candida

CandidaCandida albicans is a type of yeast that exists on our skin, inside our mouth, in our gastrointestinal tract and in the case of women, in the vagina. It lives quietly and does no harm but sometimes the yeast multiplies uncontrollably and causes infection resulting in pain and inflammation. Candida can infect the mouth, the external surface of the skin, the penis and the surface of the vagina. Candida can also infect the bloodstream or internal organs such as the liver or spleen.

But the most commonly affected areas are the skin, mouth and vagina. The leading cause for the overgrowth of the yeast is overuse of antibiotics. Antibiotics destroy the healthy bacteria which live alongside the Candida. These friendly bacteria keep the Candida under check and prevent them from growing out of control. When we take antibiotics, they kill the friendly bacteria and the Candida which is unaffected by the antibiotics, moves into the place once occupied by the healthy bacteria and begins to multiply thus causing infection.
