Kandida

Were you looking for information about Candida? Kandida is a common misspelling of Candida.
If there is an imbalance of a certain fungus in the vagina (known as Candida), it can cause candidiasis (also known as a yeast infection). This infection may be caused by several factors, such as hormonal changes or when the normal acidity of the vagina changes. Women who have candidiasis may have symptoms such as "cottage cheese-like" vaginal discharge and genital itching or burning. Treatment for these infections typically consists of antifungal medications.
