Is Potassium Permanganate Used In Treating Candidiasis
POTASS. PERMANGANATE: Many years ago, weak solutions of potassium permanganate have been used to treat various superficial fungal infections. Because it stains the skin and it's toxicity if taken internally, there are many more effective and safer options. I have not seen potassium permanganate used in quite some time.
Hi, I'd like to ask that what sorts of harm will happened if potassium permanganate in vegetable wash?
Depends: None if you wash out the chemical before use. Using potassium permanganate in the wash will not make it safer either. Just wash the vegetables with clean potable water. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Practice safe sex.
Here are some...: This Q has been around without being answered. Here is my take based on what I have studied and retained about life & medicine. I'm sure that, through decades-long experience, the mentioned mixture has been proven to provide optimal ability not only to neutralize the unwanted mis-swallowed toxic materials but also protect more for stomach and intestinal mucosa as well as being more palatable.
I m 22 yr old virgin. Does soaking the vagina in Potassium permanganate for 15 minutes 5 times a week can darken the vulva or inner labia? Is it safe?
Soaking: This can be very caustic to the skin. You can burn the area if the solution is too concentrated. It will temporarily stain skin a brown color. If you are using this without medical direction please stop. Even dilute solution can irritate skin and repeated use can cause burns.
Can low potassium be the cause of my candida infection. Have non stop itchy feet & recurring thrush.?
No: Low potassium does not affect your immune system
Candidiasis: Wide spread infection with Candida would only occur in someone who is otherwise weakened by something - such as having HIV/AIDs, cancer, diabetes that's out of control, autoimmune disease, or some other sort of immunosuppression. There is some amount of 'mis-information' on the internet, so it's important to speak to an ID doctor or someone who would know. Don't get conned!
See your doctor.: They can prescribe antifungals, if it is very serious you could even need IV antifungals, in any case, they can help you out.
Kind of...: ...Though it's pretty ubiquitous; most people carry a small amount of Candida Albicans on their skin and mucous surfaces without becoming sick; candida tends to flare up on injured surfaces, or after bacteria are suppressed with antibiotics, or in an immunosuppressed host, or in an embedded foreign body.See 1 more doctor answer
Fungus in the mouth: The layman term is yeast-infection or thrush. It is a fungal infection (candida albicans) which is quite common infants and can be easily treated by med such as nystatin. In adult, this can happen following antibiotic treatment, oral steroid use as in those for asthma/copd etc...But should be considering immunocompromised states such as hiv/cancer etc. As risk factors. Consult doc. Good luck.See 1 more doctor answer
Antifungal: Some common vaginal antifungals are: miconazole, clotrimazoloe, butocanazole, terconazole, fluconazole. Strengths of these medications vary. I typically recommend a 5 or 7 day course of vaginal suppositories. Ask pharmacist in your community if they have that type of medication.See 1 more doctor answer
Candidiasis: I presume you are pertaining to vaginal candidiasis. If it is, there are oral and topical medications that can be used for the condition. Oral medications are usually single dose treatments. They are however, metabolized in the liver. One of its side effects may be liver toxicity. Absorption is also a factor which may limit its effectivity. Vaginal creams can be messy to some people.See 1 more doctor answer
