Kandeda

Were you looking for information about Candida? Kandeda is a common misspelling of Candida.
Women who have a yeast infection have an imbalance of a certain fungus, known as Candida. This fungus lives naturally in the human body, but it can multiply when there are hormonal changes or other factors that disrupt the balance of the fungus in the body. Approximately 75 percent of women will have some type of genital yeast infection (also called candidiasis) at least once in their lifetime. Candida infections occur more frequently and more severely in people with weakened immune systems. Possible symptoms include a "cottage cheese-like" vaginal discharge and genital burning and itching.
(Click Candida for more information on what causes the Candida fungus to multiply and which women have an increased risk of developing yeast infections. You can also click any of the links in the box to the right for specific information.)
