In brief: Candida Albicans

Candida albicans is a type of yeast that will normally appear in mucous membranes such as the mouth, rectum, or vagina, or it can appear directly on the skin.
It has the ability to travel through the bloodstream to affect the heart valves, throat, and intestines. Candida albicans can become infectious when there is a change in the bodily environment that may cause it to grow rapidly.
