Did you know that there’s a fungus among us? More precisely, scientists believe that there are over five billion fungi species, some of them causing illness and disease. Fungal infections, or thrush, are common in children and adults and can be internal or external.
One of the most common fungal infections in children and adults is oral thrush, also called oral candidiasis. Although a little candidiasis yeast is on everyone’s skin and in their bodies, an overgrowth can cause infections that affect your entire system.
