What is oral fungal treatment? Is it a sign of carcinoma?

Oral fungus: Fungus can live in warm dark places. Your mouth is one of them, and this is often normal. Sometimes, for various reasons, you can get a fungal infection. On occasion, fungus can grow in association with an oral carcinoma, but a fungal infection, in and of itself, is not a sign of carcinoma. However, you should have this discussion with your doctor as to why it may have arisen.

Can you tell me what is the best laser nail fungal treatment?

Can you tell me what is the best laser nail fungal treatment?

See a dermatologist: First confirm the diagnosis. The most effective treatment is oral terbinafine. Now costs $10 and is about 60% effective. Usually no side effects or risks. Do not take it if you have active hepatitis. Laser costs over $1000, not covered by insurance, and works about 20% of the time. Either way, it takes a year to grow a new toenail, 6 months for a fingernail.

Can you have fungal and bacterial folliculitis at the same time and what's the treatment?

Can you have fungal and bacterial folliculitis at the same time and what's the treatment?

Yes: This sounds like the tinea versicolor variant with little pustules around the hair bases. These can become bacterially superinfected. Focus on the fungal infection with a good anti-fungal -- a single big ketoconazole tablet followed by working up an intense sweat in the fitness center might work a minor miracle for you.

Can you tell me some good and powerful treatment for fungal infection?

Can you tell me some good and powerful treatment for fungal infection?

Treatment difficult: Treatment for fungus is difficult and usually requires long courses of treatment as fungi are very slow growing and thus slow to eradicate. You need to talk to doc if you have difficult to treat fungus, because the meds used are very rough on your body, and as I said, you have to use them usually a long time. There are oral meds like Griseofulvin and IV meds like amphotericin and many others.
