Yeast Infections

Yeast infections are infections of a yeast fungus, such as Candida albicans or Pityrosporum orbiculare.

Yeasts and fungi are naturally present through the bodies of humans, both inside and out. Changes to their levels can lead to fungal infections of the skin and mucous membranes, particularly in warm, moist places. Common examples of yeast infections are Candidal intertrigo and pityriasis versicolor.

In most cases, yeast infections are superficial and pose no serious health risk.

Antifungal agents such as clotrimazole will target yeast infections and provide effective treatment of the associated symptoms.
