Fungal infection: yes candida is a real infection. candida is fungal infection. the treatment is anti-fungal therapy - not an antibiotic. taking antibiotic will not do anything to candida infection. I do not know why you are fatigue and have weight loss- obviously it is something you should discuss with your doctor.
