What is candida?

Candida is a genus of yeasts that are often found in the gut, mouth, throat, vagina or skin of humans. Certain species of candida, typically Candida albicans can become pathogenic and grow excessively, causing the disease Candidiasis.

Candidiasis is commonly referred to by several different names depending on the site of infection; thrush (mouth or throat), yeast infection (vagina) or invasive candidiasis if candida enters the bloodstream or internal organs.
