It depends on your age and gender. In babies, it causes diaper rash. Young children and some adults get thrush in their mouth from Candida albicans. In females it is responsible for vaginitis or yeast infections and men get jock itch. Those are the most common and medically accepted things Candida can cause.

However, many people believe it is also responsible for a range of symptoms encompassing the whole body. Some of these are:

1. GI tract problems such as gas, bloating, constipation, diarrhea and indigestion.

2. Skin problems including rashes, eczema, athletes foot, and acne.

3. Emotional issues such as anxiety, depression, mood swings, etc.

4. Headaches, migraines and joint pain.

I'm sure I have missed some, but I hope that helps.
