Hello! i've intestinal candidiasis and my doctor told me to take fluconazole (50mg 7 days) and metronidazole (250 mg 13 days). Should i take this?

It depends: How was the diagnosis made. If you have had a biopsy (usually at endoscopy) that shows candidiasis or have a culture from the throat that is positive for candidiasis then treatment with Fluconazole is reasonable . If it is candidiasis in a stool culture, this can be a normal finding and does not need treatment. Finally, Metronidazole has no role in treatment of candidiasis. ...Read more

HIV 1&2 P24 Combo (CMIA) test on13th day.index value 0.1& non-reactive. symptoms so far-Oral candidiasis from 14th day. How reliable is the test ?

You don't have HIV: This test result is over 80% reliable; almost certainly you do not have HIV. Have another test at 4 weeks to be certain.
