Mostly, you don't.: Everybody has some candida on their body surfaces, inside and out; too much candida, or candida growing in the wrong place, can be a disease, but blaming normal colonization with candida for everything that ails you, or trying to cure everything with antifungal medications, is generally useless. So-called "candida diets" work because they eliminate foods that are unhealthy for other reasons. ...Read more

It's a horrible mind-set, and it's also a cruel fraud. Get with an evidence-based holistic practitioner, not these folks. ...Read more

Candida albicans: Some feel that high sugar meals promote Candida Albicans growth. This means sweets like cakes, cookies, candy, processed breads, etc. Using whole grain flour may help a little with this because the sugar would be delivered a little more slowly to your system, but it is still sugar. High sugar fruits (pineapple, papaya, etc) might be seen this way also. ...Read more

In that case, ask your doctor about oral fluconazole (Diflucan®) once a week for prevention. ...Read more

Confusing...: This is a confusing question, difficult to understand. Is the "girl" your daughter? How old? Or perhaps a sex partner? Where is her infection (vaginal, oral, anal, or elsewhere)? "Gram positive and negative" doesn't mean anything in regard to Candida, the main cause of yeast infections. More info, please. ...Read more
I had a blood test called "candida Albicans Ag response". The result was zero and it was flagged as "low". What does that mean?
A titer of less than 2 indicates that circulating
Candida antigen is not present or that Candida species
are present as a commensal only. A negative
reaction does not exclude the
possibility of systemic Candida infection, because in
immunocompetent patients the antigen may be
present as part of an immuno-complex which does
not react in this test system. ...Read more

The organism: Is not the only consideration. You did not mention if it was skin on toe or the nail. Nials are difficult to treat due to the fact the organisms are ususally under the nail. The thickness of the nail is also a concern. Is the tolnaftate a cream? A soultion? As you want it to be able to get under the nail as well. Try and keep the nail short and soft. Try the tolnaftate ... ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
