Common yeast infection symptoms & treatment
A yeast infection occurs when too much yeast, a common fungus found on and in the body and in the environment, grows in one place. Even though this fungus is commonly found in the environment and on someone's body it requires the right set of circumstances to cause infection. Certain medications, stress, and other factors can cause the fungus to grow more than it should and cause infection. It is most often caused by a fungus called "candida".
