What is the difference between yeast and bacteria?

Question: What is the difference between yeast and bacteria?
Because Candida is a yeast inefction and yet at the same time it is stated to be ‘bad bacteria overgrowth’?
So if I want to get rid of bad bacteria in my body I have to drink vinegar, but on a candida diet you can't drink vinegar so what am I supposed to do?

Bacteria and yeast co-exist so that they feed off of apiece other, if the levels of one are high the other is low. Any time you introduce extreme ph levels this can also throw off the balance. For example if you drink lots of sugarry drinks or just generally consume a lot of sugar this will cause your yeast to have more food and so it will multiply. I think in order to rid yourself you should consume yogurts with live cultures. These live cultures contain good bacteria to equilibrium both the bad bacteria and the yeast. Greatest wishes

    Yeast (Candida albicans is the most common one in vaginal infections) is a fungus. It is possible to have a fungal infection and serious bacterial overgrowth growth as well – it generally means something is out of whack.

    Vinegar is usually used to beat back the yeast rather than the bacteria. Candida doesn’t tolerate acid conditions well. I never heard of drinking the vinegar, though (have put it in a different end for yeast inections and it worked well).
