Can fungus on my to nail cause yeast to multiple in my throat. I had a throat culture done and it showed that I had over growth of yeast. Please help?

Can fungus on my to nail cause yeast to multiple in my throat. I had a throat culture done and it showed that I had over growth of yeast. Please help?

No: The fungii that cause nail fungal infection (trichophyton and epidemophytum) are different than yeast infection of the throat (candidia). However if you are prone to opportunistic infection (suppressed immune system, etc) you are more likely to get both but the spread of the nail to the throat is extremely unlikely. I hope you are seeing your pcp for these matters to monitor your overall health. ...Read more

Had HPV since Dec 2016. had sex 2 weeks ago. Saw small yellow on right tonsil, need to clear throat sometimes. No pain, no fever. Cancer or fungus??

Probably neither: It is highly unlikely that you have fungal infection or cancer from sex two weeks ago. Even though you had HPV, still get vaccine to prevent infection with other strains of HPV. If you miss your period by 4-5 days, do a home pregnancy test. If the result is negative repeat the test 4-5 days later unless you get a period by then. Use first morning urine and follow the instructions for the test carefully.
If you do not wish to be pregnant, use contraception all the time, every time. You may consider implanted contraceptive, or IUD.
Practice safe sex. ...Read more
