This book describes Candida Skin Infection, Diagnosis and Treatment and Related Diseases

Many people have asked me what Candida skin infections are.
Candida skin Infections may be present on the vulva, vagina, penis, groins, nails and the skin.
Candida skin infections happen in humid countries and where is a lot of body sweat.

Candida or Yeast is a fungus normally found on the skin.
Small numbers of candida normally reside on the skin and do no harm.

Occasionally, under certain disorders, they can multiply and cause infection.

The frequent sites for candida to produce infection are the vagina (vaginal thrush), the mouth (oral thrush) and the skin.

Most infections happen in people who are otherwise healthy (although they are more frequent if the patient is overweight).

It is also present in the digestive system.

If the patient is a woman, the patient also has yeast in the vaginal area.

When too much yeast grows on the skin or other areas, it can produce an infection.

This infection is also termed candidiasis.

A fungal infection, also termed mycosis, is a skin disease produced by a fungus.

Fungi live in the dirt, on plants, on household surfaces, and on the skin.

Occasionally, they can cause skin disorders like rashes or bumps.

The likelihood of a candida skin infection developing tends more possible in these situations:

1. Areas of skin that are moist or sweaty are ideal for candida to thrive.

2. The frequent sites involved are in the folds of skin in the groin, armpits and under large breasts.

Another term for inflammation within a fold of skin or under a breast is 'intertrigo'.

Candida skin infection is a frequent cause of intertrigo.

Nappy rash is occasionally caused by candida infection.

Obese people may form candida infection between folds of skin.

It can also involve skin between the fingers and toes and at corners of the mouth if the patient has:
1. Diabetes
2. Taken a long course of antibiotics or steroid medicine
3. A poor immune system e.g., if the patient has AIDS, or have chemotherapy, or has certain types of serious blood disorder

Candida infection of the skin is a type of fungal infection of the skin.

The medical name of the disorder is skin candidiasis.

The body normally acts as a host of a wide range of germs, such as bacteria and fungi.

Some of these are helpful to the body, some produce no harm or benefit while some can produce harmful infections.

Some fungal infections are produced by fungi that often live on the hair, nails, and outer skin layers.

They involve yeast-like fungi such as candida.

Occasionally, these fungi penetrate beneath the surface of the skin and produce infection.

In cutaneous candidiasis, the skin is infected with candida fungi.

It can affect almost any skin on the body, but most often it happens in warm, moist, creased areas such as the armpits and groin.

The fungus that most often produces cutaneous candidiasis is Candida albicans.

Candida infection is the most frequent cause of diaper rash in infants.

The candida fungi take advantage of the warm, moist situations inside the diaper.

Candida infection is also especially frequent in people with diabetes and in those who are obese.

Antibiotics, steroid therapy, and chemotherapy raise the risk of cutaneous candidiasis.

Candida can also produce infections of the nails, edges of the nails and the corners of the mouth.

Oral thrush, a form of candida infection of the moist lining of the mouth, normally happens when people take antibiotics.

It may also be a sign of an HIV infection or other weakened immune system disorders when it happens in adults.
