Yeast infections are most commonly caused by Candida albicans that is always present in human’s body but some alterations of the body’s environment may result in Candida albicans overgrowth. Changes that may affect the levels of microorganisms such as Candida albicans are acid/alkaline imbalance, the use of antibiotics, low nutrition and over-consumption of sugar, regular use of birth control pills, hormonal imbalance or compromised immune functions. The infections may occur orally, vaginally, on the skin, in the urinary tract or in the stomach.
