Synopsis

Candidiasis is a fungal infection caused by the yeast Candida albicans. It can be acquired perinatally, in adolescence through intercourse with an infected partner, or occur idiopathically in children of all ages. It frequently occurs in diabetics, in the immunosuppressed, and after treatment with oral antibiotics.

Candida
can infect the proximal shaft, scrotum, and crural folds. Candidal balanitis is a fungal infection of the glans penis. It occurs more frequently in the uncircumcised male.

Small erosions and vesicles or pustules present with associated itching and burning. In its mildest form, the condition may be intermittent and transient.
