how is a candida infection treated?

1 doctor answer
Dr. Michael Ein

Depends on location: Invasive candida infections and candidemia are treated with antifungal medications such as fluconazole, micafungin and others. Candida esophagitis is usually treated with oral fluconazole. Thrush or oral candidiasis is usually treated with topical Mycostatin (nystatin) or clotrimazole. Candida rashes of the skin are usually treated with a variety of topical antifungal creams or powder.
