Candida skin infections can occur on almost any area of the body, but they are more commonly found in intertriginous regions. This is where two skin areas touch or rub together. Such areas include the armpits, groin, and skin folds, as well as the area between your fingers and toes. The fungus thrives in warm, moist, and sweaty conditions.
Normally, your skin acts as an effective barrier against infection. However, any cuts or breakdown in the superficial layers of the skin may allow the fungus to cause infection. Candida becomes pathogenic, or capable of causing disease, when conditions are favorable for it to multiply. Hot and humid weather, poor hygiene, or restrictive clothing may produce these conditions.
These aren’t the only risk factors to consider. Candida infections also tend to be more prevalent in:
* people who are overweight
* people with diabetes
* people with an underactive thyroid gland, or hypothyroidism
* people with inflammatory disorders
* people with a weakened immune system
* people working in wet conditions
* pregnant women
Certain medications may also increase the risk for this type of fungal infection. Topical corticosteroid medications are the most problematic, but birth control pills and antibiotics are other possible causes. If you take these types of medications, you should monitor your skin regularly for signs of candida infection.
December 2006 (Medialink) - Women who rely on oral contraceptives as a means for birth control can now have their pill and chew it, too. The first and only FDA approved chewable birth control pill is now available with a prescription.
The spearmint-flavored daily tablet, called Femcon Fe, formerly named Ovcon 35 Chewable, is designed to provide a convenient, new option for busy women on the go. It can be chewed or swallowed whole and it offers the same ingredients and reliability as the traditional swallowed pill.
New birth control options are important for women, since studies show that 47 percent of women miss one or more pills per month - and missing pills can increase the risk of pregnancy.
Femcon Fe is available in a 28-day regimen in which women take 21 active tablets, followed by seven placebo tablets containing iron. Risks associated with the product are similar to those of other birth control pills and include an increased risk of blood clots, heart attacks and strokes, particularly for smokers over 35 years old.

I am not a Catholic, even though I was raised one, and this priest speaks the truth. Generally only Catholics speak the truth about birth control being as evil as killing a baby by abortion. One never hears a word about birth control in the 'Protestant' churches and now almost all Protestant churches have come to accept this destroying sin as being acceptable. Birth Control leads to sexual immorality and abortion. These sins bring God's judgment on us and on our country. We will not escape God's wrath unless we repent and it's clear we are not repenting. Do not use birth control, it is a sin. Not allowing a child to be conceived is as evil as killing the child once he/she is conceived.
