Certainly: If you are chronically infected you certainly can have a significant candidiasis that persists. If this is the case, it might be time to see an infectious disease specialist to see why.

Immune system?: In healthy people with thrush, cutaneous candidiasis, or vaginal yeast infections, usually can be eliminated with short treatment (sometimes a single dose) of antifungal medication.In people with AIDS or other immune deficiency diseases, Candida infections can be difficult to treat and can return after treatment. In weakened immunity candidiasis can be life threatening.
