Fungal and yeast infections
In the human body live thousands of species of fungi and bacteria, which in symbiosis form the microflora of various organs.
A healthy body contains a small amount of yeast fungi that is not dangerous. They are part of the normal microflora, but when exposed to external or internal unfavorable factors begin to multiply actively. The reason is local or general reduction of immunity, and also reception of some medicines.
Many people believe that yeast fungi are generally harmless. Once the person realizes that the cause of discomfort was not a sexual infection, it completely calms down. Without proper treatment yeast fungi actively multiply, hitting new areas of tissues.
The development of yeast fungi is independent of sex. In medicine this problem is called Candidoz, which can be found on the genitals or nails. Fungal infection is a set of unpleasant symptoms, the manifestation of which cause discomfort and worsen the quality of human life. To prevent chronic form, follow the timely health.
Let's look at the causes of these infections and the possible risks associated with them.
But first we will understand where yeast fungus appears on the skin and intimate places in humans.
Candida fungus is in everyone, in a certain amount that controls the immune system, they quietly live without waiting for the weakening of immunity, but begin to multiply if it happens.
Candidiasis, or thrush is a disease in which the genitals, skin, mouth cavity and other areas of the body affects Candida yeast fungus.
Three ways of human infection are singled out:
- Through consumed food;
The first kind occurs because of use of one ware, a towel, or a toothbrush to the sick and healthy person.
Not infrequently infection occurs in public places: Sauna, swimming pool.
Wash fruits and vegetables well, because they are also inhabited by these microorganisms, but can protect it by 100%
If the infection was formed in the area of genital (gerpis), the infection occurred sexually.
Fungal infection (candidiasis) can be transmitted by airborne droplets, through objects and food, as well as by sexual contact.
Inside as well as on the human skin is inhabited by a large number of fungi that can infect the body with reduced immunity. Fungal infection affects the skin and nails on the fingers, but more often on the legs, less often-the area of hair growth and internal organs of the person. The neglected form of the disease is difficult to cure, so it is important to start treatment on time.
