A yeast infection is an infection caused by a
fungus, specifically Candida albicans. Fungi are present everywhere in our environment and usually
cause no harm. But when conditions are present that allow the fungus to
grow unchecked, an infection develops. Candida intertrigo is a fungal infection
that causes inflammation, burning, and itching in moist skin folds.
The rash of a fungal infection is fiery red with a scalloped border
and sharply outlined edges. This rash appears as tiny pus-filled pimples mainly
in the folds of genital skin. A rash may also be present in other skin folds,
such as on the neck or underarms or around the navel.

off myriad scents that, while totally normal, can sometimes stink. Not to worry
- these expert tips will help you battle B.O. for good.
