DESCRIPTION

Candida albicans is a fungus that lives almost everywhere, including in your body. Usually, your immune system keeps yeast under control. Candida albicans is also has been called vulvo-vaginal candidiasis, candidal vaginitis, monilial infection, or vaginal yeast infection. Twenty to 25% of the vaginitis cases are candida vulvovaginitis. It has been estimated that about 75% of all women get a vaginal yeast infection at least once. In 80-90% of the cases, candida vulvovaginitis is caused by an overgrowth of the yeast Candida albicans. In otherwise healthy people who have thrush, cutaneous candidiasis, or vaginal yeast infections, Candida infections usually can be eliminated with a short treatment (sometimes a single dose) of antifungal medication. However, in people with AIDS or other diseases that weaken the immune system, Candida infections can be difficult to treat and can return after treatment. In people with weakened immune systems, candidiasis can be life threatening if it passes into the blood and spreads to vital organs.

La bărbaţi: Infecţia cu Candida albicans este rară. în cazurile în care dezvoltă această infecţie, este numită adesea Balanită şi este vizibilă în zona prepuţului la bărbaţii necircumcişi.

Please make an appointment with a doctor for further personal advice and attend any possible clinical tests. Doctors will provide detailed information and suggestions for the test positive subjects. It is strongly suggested to do the test with a sex partner because male may not have any symptom while infected and other partner may be infected through intercourse.

This indicates that the subject does not have a Candida albicans infection. If the symptoms continue, we recomment taking the Veneris Urinary Tract Infection test, Gardnerella vaginalis test and Trichomonas vaginalis test and discussing with your doctor for further information.
