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
It can?: Tinea versacolor is the most common type of skin "fungus" that causes color changes. After it is treated the color usually returns to normal.

There are other fungal skin infections that could cause pigmentation changes, but they are not the usual ones. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Not usually: No, this could be an indication of another problem such as dehydration or autoimmune disease.

There are few: There are 3 main treatment options for toenail fungus. The 1st option is an oral medication. The tablets although highly effective do have some possible side effects. The 2nd option is laser treatment, a highly effective option in my experience. The 3rd option is a topical medication, which is the least effective of the three. Consult your doctor for the right treatment for you. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Skin Fungal Infectio: The short answer is yes, it is possible. However, most skin fungal infections are easily treatable, and actually when they don't seem to respond - it is because they were misdiagnosed. Many types of skin conditions look very similar, and often are ultimately figured out after trying several different medications. Thus, if you are in doubt, go to your dermatologist or pcp for help! ...Read more

IV antifungal meds: Hello, The majority of IV anti fungal medicines are potent and would also treat a yeast such as Candida Albicans.

It is important to have targeted anti fungal therapy directed by a physician knowledgeable in infections. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Best multivitamin or vitamin to get rid of candida overgroqth and scalp fungus i'm taking gnc probiotic 10 billion conplex ?
Scalp problems: Vitamins in this setting have only limited use. Best to see a doctor for proper evaluation. In this modern age, vitamin deficiencies are rare as long as you eat a balanced diet (and are not vegetarian). I advocate getting vitamins, minerals and micronutrients from food rather than wasting money on supplements. It's a big marketing scam. Try selenium sulphide shampoo while you wait for an apt. ...Read more
Probably not: Candida infections of the mouth and esophagus are frequent findings in patients with hiv/aids, but candida infections especially of the mouth and skin are very common in patients with normal immunity especially those who have recently taken antibiotics. The vast majority of people with candida infections do not have hiv/aids. ...Read more
What to do if I have read that allergies is cause by candida on the intestine walls. what medicine is effective in killing candida(fungi)?
Be more discerning: You're an adult and I hope that you don't actually believe everything that you read. This is not only obviously false (why do different people get different allergies? why don't pathologists such as myself ever see candida there? why don't drugs that really kill candida reverse allergies?) -- it's a cruel scam. Read the blogs -- there are plenty of remedies but no one is ever cured. ...Read more
Will a cystoscopy with bladder stretching and tissue biopsy include testing for candida fungi and Lyme spirochetes in bladder? I have both conditions
Discuss with doctor: The individual performing endoscopy is the person to discuss the nature of the testing they plan to perform. I am not aware of anybody who examines for the presence of spirochaetes in the bladder, although if you insist upon this there are specialty labs which may perform this. It is not by any means a standard test, nor is it likely to be of any benefit in the management of your condition. ...Read more

My IGg blood test reveal candida albicans, then tested for stool fungi culture which show 'medium growth', I suffer from severe Brain Fog. Advise pls?
Get the right advice: For someone who has a symptom of brain fog, I recommend they meet with a psychiatrist and undergo cognitive testing. Vitamin B12 deficiency may cause this symptom, hopefully your level is normal, as you use supplements. Testing for stool fungi and IGG for Candida is not likely to help explain the cause of your symptoms. Try not to do self-diagnosis- it often leads to errors. ...Read more
