Summary about Cutaneous Candidiasis in English

Cutaneous candidiasis and other forms of candidiasis are infections caused by Candida albicans yeast or other Candida species. Yeasts are one-celled fungi that normally reproduce at birth, a process involving the progeny of the parent cell. C albicans, the main infectious agent in human, is an oval yeast with a diameter of 2 to 6 μm. C-albicans (as well as most mushrooms of medical importance) may exist as hyphae or yeasts (called dimorphism). If the punctured cells do not separate, a cell chain is created and called pseudohyphae.

Cutaneous means, “skin” and candidiasis is projecting to the infection caused by the specified fungi.
It is a very common fungal infection that may affect all of the skin but the warm and moist areas are more vulnerable to this infection such as; armpits and groin. Superficial infections of the skin and mucous membranes are the most common types of skin infections caused by candidiasis. The most common types of skin infections caused by candida are intertrigo, diaper rash, erosion interdigitalis blastomycetica, perianal dermatitis, and candidal balanitis.
