Answer by ivillage4women
Genital candidiasis (also called a yeast infection) is an inflammation of the vagina, prepuce (foreskin) or glans penis (the rounded head of the penis). It is caused by an overabundance of Candida, a microscopic fungus that normally inhabits the human body. There are four types of Candida. However, a variety called Candida albicans (C. albicans) causes the vast majority of genital yeast infections.
