Fungus: Toenail fungus is usually a result of athlete's feet and there should be no relation to throat involvement. I doubt that you had a fungal throat infection. Yeast infections of the mouth are usually obvious with white patches and are not seen in the absence of high blood sugar, corticosteroid medications or spray, immunodeficiency state or taking antibiotics. See your MD if throat discomfort recurs
