Dry, rough hoarse throat for 4wks. Dr says no candida etc. No lymph up. Slight chesty cough. White spots deep one tonsil and one red patch. Scared!

Dry, rough hoarse throat for 4wks. Dr says no candida etc. No lymph up. Slight chesty cough. White spots deep one tonsil and one red patch. Scared!

Post-nasal drainage: Your symptoms are probably just due to some post-nasal drainage which can cause throat pain/irritation and cough. Red and white sports on tonsils are not too concerning. The white spot is likely debris (called a tonsillolith). They are annoying but not dangerous. The red patch is probably from irritation from the drainage. Try antihistamine or steroid nose spray. ...Read more

See an ID doctor: If you are an adult, not diabetic or on antibiotics or steroids and have thrush you must be tested for HIV disease and have your immunity assessed.

I have spots on the insides of my thighs that itch like crazy! is it dry skin or could it be linked to my candida overgrowth? (i'm about 95% paleo)

I have spots on the insides of my thighs that itch like crazy! is it dry skin or could it be linked to my candida overgrowth? (i'm about 95% paleo)

See a dermatologist: Why candida overgrowth? There is always a reason. Beware of Benadryl (diphenhydramine) as it is a sleeping pill and will not reduce your itch. Claims for "paleo" diet do not make sense to scientists or physicians. You may have a type of intertrigo. Are you very heavy? ...Read more

A small blue-green circular spot underneath my toenail, in the middle. I discovered it when I removed my polish. I also have vaginal candida. Fungus?

A small blue-green circular spot underneath my toenail, in the middle. I discovered it when I removed my polish. I also have vaginal candida. Fungus?

Maybe: The two aren't related, however. Which is to say, that the candida in your vagina is albicans (most typically) and the candida (if that's what it is) on your toenail would be a different species of candida. Unless you have diabetes or some other medical condition that puts you at risk for getting candida in multiple areas of the body at the same time, the 2 aren't related. There is cream for toe! ...Read more
