Vaginal mycosis (candidiasis) is a fungal vaginal infection that affects the internal and external female genital organs and can spread to the surrounding area and to the anus. This disease affects 75% of women at least once in their lifetime and becomes chronic in 45% of cases. Vaginal mycosis is certainly one of the most common genital problems.

In as many as 90% of cases, the cause of vaginal mycosis is the fungus Candida albicans. This fungus is naturally found in the intestinal flora, and passes to the vagina through the blood, lymph glands, or skin when an imbalance in the intestinal flora occurs. When it reaches the vaginal mucosa it begins to develop rapidly thanks to very suitable conditions, acidic pH, humidity, heat and high glycogen levels. Antibiotics, corticosteroids and other drugs that weaken the body's immunity, then diabetes and HIV can encourage the development of vaginal mycosis.

The disease can be transmitted sexually, mainly from women, although sometimes the disease is also transmitted by men. Candida albicans infection can also occur in children, associated with diaper rash. Symptoms that can be extremely unpleasant and painful are: white odorless discharge reminiscent of clotted milk, itching, burning in the vulva and vagina, burning sensation on the genitals, redness and swelling of the vulva, burning sensation when urinating, dryness and pain prevent intercourse.
