Candida Auris Fungus Infection: Symptoms, Spread, Treatment


C. auris mainly spreads through person-to-person contact in healthcare settings, where the fungus can easily be transmitted directly between patients and healthcare workers.

People can get the fungus on their skin and even in their body — for example, the digestive tract — without ever getting sick. That’s called being “colonized” with the fungus. Healthcare workers who are perfectly healthy who are colonized with C. auris may unknowingly transmit it to a patient if they don’t practice proper hand hygiene.
