I have oral thrush/candida & was given clotrimozole troche 10mg 5x/day for 2 weeks today. White spots are all over my mouth, tongue, tonsils, lips & uvula. I can't stop wanting to gag. What can I do?
See an ID doctor: If you are an adult, not diabetic or on antibiotics or steroids and have thrush you must be tested for HIV disease and have your immunity assessed. Thrush seldom occurs in normal adults, and particularly when it fails to respond to standard treatment it is an ominous sign. ...Read more

Allergies are bad, constantly coughing/hacking up mucus. Had recent bout of candida in mouth given zpak to recover. Any suggesrions?
Yesterday I was told I have fungal organisms morphologically consistent with candida spp can it be healed and does it pass through the mouth? Thankyou
Candida: This is a common yeast present in almost all human beings gut. Development of vaginitis with this yeast-like fungus is inordinately common, but may be increased in persons with diabetes, immune deficiencies, on antibiotics or steroids, etc. And of course completely normal individuals can also get these infections. ...Read more
18 d ago I gave head for 3 sec, started to have fever, candida, pharyngitis. Went to the doctor to treat that, drugs gave me diahrea, but its also a sign of HIV? Also too took tests at d10 was -
Although it is unlikely that you would have picked up HIV from what you have described, it takes about six weeks at the earliest for tests to determine if you picked up HIV from that exposure.
While thrush can be a sign of hiv, I would not expect it to show that quickly after exposure. It is possible that the other person had a yeast infection and you picked that up. ...Read more
Hard to say: Candida and pinworms both can cause itchy anus (Pruitis Ani), but there are a number of other infections and dermatologic conditions that may be responsible. There is no way to tell from such limited information if all your symptoms are related to one disease (probably not.) You need to see a physician for an examination or consider an online consultation at Health Tap ...Read more

I have severe vaginal candida, as well as candida in the mouth, but a bit more mild. My doctor prescribed 1 pill of 100g fluconazole for 1 week. My liver feels weird. Is this the right dosage? I take one daily. I am 19.
Yeast treatment: Vaginal yeast is usually treated with topical anti fungal creams or one single done of Fluconazole. Multiple daily doses are typically not needed. If you are not responding to that therapy then your doctor should reevaluate you for other conditions that may be present. Unless your immune system is compromised it is not typical to have both vaginal and oral yeast. ...Read more
My 3 months baby has candida albicans on her mouth and tongue all the time. More than 2 months. We treated it with nystatin but didn't work. What todo?
Sore throat, mouth lesions 2 months. Mouth BX said leukoplakia, dysplasia, candida. Now large non tender nodes in posterior triangle. Low wbc. Reactive?
Immunodeficiency: I'm worried about your overall health. To have those biopsy findings you mentioned is a concern, now if you have enlarged lymph nodes I wonder if this is connected to your earlier presentation. Hopefully your primary doc is working hard to help you out. I hope u can see an ID doctor as part of it all- I would be very interested to know "what" your immune system is or isn't doing-and know how2 help ...Read more

Every morning I have white substance in the corners of my mouth and also under inside under my top lip looks like yeast or something what could it be?
Dried saliva: You probably just have dried spit on your mouth. In my college days we called it mouth rot. As a medical professional its just dried spit. One of my best friends still gets it and I have to remind him to wipe his mouth all the time. Looks disgusting but nothing a little water and toothpaste can't handle. If you have plaques that don't go away or pustules this is different. ...Read more
A few things: Are you sure it's yeast? Not all white residue is yeast. Yeast would likely burn, and not be confined to the corners of your mouth. If it is, a very mild vinegar would likely be the simplest thing. Yogurt would be another home remedy that might work. Otherwise a prescription for Nystatin mouth rinse or Clotrimazole troches would be used. ...Read more
I have an itchy sensation on the lips near my urethra but not near my vagina. I don't think it's a yeast infection, what could it be?
Irritation?: It could be from soap or laundry detergent is they have perfume/dyes in them. Try soaking in a plain water bath and sleeping without underwear. If symptoms continue, see your doctor. ...Read more
If a yeast infection causes swelling, where should be the swelling? Because mine is around the vaginal lips up to the urethral opening.

Can herpes cause small bumps to appear ALL over the outer lips of the vagina or is this something else? Had a yeast infection 2 weeks ago.
Maybe: With herpes, you may initially see a crop of small individual bumps that look like they have fluid in them, but they quickly spread and coalesce (group together). They also would go from itchy and irritating to painful in sensation. If you have even a small suspicion of herpes, then run - don't walk - to your medical provider or STD clinic for urgent evaluation and treatment. Hope that helps! ...Read more
I have a lot of white discharge that smells like baby milk. Sort of like after a baby throws up formula milk. It just sits on the lips. BV or yeast?

There's one white bump on my inner vaginal lip its been there 2 months it doesn't hurt or anything it came when I had a yeast infection what could it be
Vaginal bump: It is probably just a cyst. Get it checked if you want to know for sure, but if it doesn't hurt or change in any way, it is probably safe to just watch it. ...Read more
I have been experiencing candiasis fungus. I believe to have it because I experience fogged memory, fatigue, yeast, chapped lips and wrinkled. Pleaseh?
It's not Candida: "Systemic candidiasis" causing such symptoms is an urban myth. There is no such thing. If "yeast" means you think you have a vaginal, skin, or oral yeast infection, get it checked out. But even though candida is the usual cause, it doesn't explain your other symptoms. See a doctor, such as your family physician or an internist, then take it from there. Good luck! ...Read more
Recovering from yeast infection. Can I use Desatin to help treat as prevent chafing on inside of the vaginal lips?
Yes but one warning: Please be sure that you are not sensitive to zinc oxide on your skin. If you have used Desitin (zinc oxide diaper cream) before then you should be fine. However, if not, try it out on another body part before experimenting with your sensitive area. If you are hypersensitive to the Desitin (zinc oxide diaper cream) elsewhere, you could save yourself a lot of trouble. Baby rash powders/creams/lotions all work here, as does Lotrimin (Clotrimazole). ...Read more
