Comprehensive ...: Better to see PCP and have a comprehensive History, Physical, labs and appropriate Imaging studies to have exact diagnosis of what seems to be a recurrence of Symptoms. Then see the specific Specialists like Gastroenterologist or Infectious Disease Consult as the case may be.

Once colonization has been established, impaired cellular immunity permits invasion of the epithelial layer, such as HIV infection. Proton pump inhibitor, H2 antagonist, vagotomy , Antibiotics and corticosteroids increases the risk of Esophageal Candidaisis.
