I hope to help fill this gap, and make a small contribution to the broader goal of helping wimmin take control of our body. That said, a word about what I'm not trying to do here. This page focuses on the symptoms, causes and treatments for vaginal yeast infections in wimmin who are not immunocompromised.

Not only is he resistant to medications, but he is also very fatal. The new strain of infectious yeast is known as Candida auris, and unlike its cousin Candida albicans, this version has developed a complete resistance to antifungal medications used to combat it. C. auris was first identified in 2009, when he was seen in a patient's hearing loss in Japan. According to an alert from the CDC, health facilities around the world have reported that the fungus was responsible for serious, sometimes fatal infections.
