Were you looking for information about Candida? Candidia is a common misspelling of Candida.
If a certain fungus (called Candida
) multiplies and causes an imbalance in the vagina, candidiasis (or a yeast infection
) may occur. This is a common condition, affecting approximately 75 percent of women at least once in their lifetime. This infection results in symptoms such as a "cottage cheese-like" discharge and genital burning and itching. Treatment for Candida typically involves antifungal medications.
