Can fungus cause anal clear itchy discharge?

Can fungus cause anal clear itchy discharge?

Yeast seems unlikely: This may be possible, but I doubt yeast is the most likely explanation. Some other infection or inflammatory bowel disease may be more likely. If you are the receptive partner in anal sex, and if at risk for STDs, gonorrhea or chlamydia are possible, or possibly herpes but less likely without substantial pain. Rectal cancer could do it. The main thing is to see a doctor and take it from there. ...Read more

My toenail is only attached on one side. I taped it down because snagging it hurts. It is getting black from underneath. There is no pain, discharge or odor. Could it be fungus?

Could be: Although it could be fungus, the loose nail must come off. To leave it attached can cause pain and be a source for infection. See your doctor for a referral to a specialist to remove the loose part of the nail. It should grow back after removal. ...Read more

My 2 yr has hi pH in his stools and the acidity has been causing rashs &fungus in his skin.  3/4 stools daily & not all diarrea. Lactose intolerance?

Unlikely: A high ph is alkaline, not acid. Any diarrhea can cause diaper rash. There are many causes of diarrhea at this age - infection, malabsorption, celiac etc. Please follow up with your doctor; see a ped GI specialist if recommended. Meanwhile clean with soft cloth and soap/water, and use appropriate antibiotic or antifungal ointment for the rash. Lactose intolerance is uncommon under age 6. ...Read more

What does it mean if your constipated and your stool comes out green like fungus? I've been to the doctor many times too. Please help!

Green stool: Occasional green stool color is normal, usually due to passage through the digestive tract with some degree of rapidity such that bile is incompletely metabolized (which contributes the brown color). Diet high in leafy greens can also cause this. Or iron supplementation. No association between green color and fungus. ...Read more

Operated fungus ball in left maxillary sinus. Now, postnasal discharge(~ right side) in stomach and left lung.Big spleen. Smelly urine. What could be?

Operated fungus ball in left maxillary sinus. Now, postnasal discharge(~ right side) in stomach and left lung.Big spleen. Smelly urine. What could be?

See doctor: Fungal ball in the sinus is not expected to cause urinary , abdominal, or urinary symptoms . If this affects your lung, then one needs to rule out the presence of fungal ball in the lung also. With the large spleen, I suspect that you are having a systemic disease and this requires tests and examination to clarify. By the way, the odor of urine is not usually diagnostic of anything . ...Read more
