And hypoplastic defects make one side of the heart smaller.

Can diet affect fungal infections on the skin?

Dr. Latisha Smith
Wound care 38 years experience
Yes: For any person with a normal immune system, your body has 'good' bacteria to help keep the fungal organisms on the skin in check. The bacteria that turn milk into yogurt are one example of good bacteria. Eating yogurt that contains live bacteria ( typically this is natural yogurt) will increase the 'good' bacteria in your body that will help fend off fungal infections.
