Probably no harm: These infections do not harm the immune system and it is unlikely yours "went bust" on account of them. In fact, common minor infections and exposures to environmental toxins etc tend to strengthen the immune system. I hope the fluconazole (Fluzol®) helps your candida infection, but C glabrata is often resistant to all azole drugs. If symptoms persist, see doctor for an alternate treatment.
