Sputum test reports heavy growth of Candida albicans and pseudomonas aeruginosa. No symptoms excpt stuffy nose and throat clearing for 2 yrs. Pls help?

More info needed: Pseudomonas and Candida often appear when normal bacteria are suppressed by antibiotics. Have you been taking antibiotics, maybe for your stuffy nose and cough? Or have you been hospitalized recently? If you are otherwise healthy, chest xray normal (no pneumonia), and you don't have severe bronchitis, probably these results can be ignored. Discuss with your doctor or infectious disease specialist. ...Read more

See doctor: You may or may not have candida. You need to be evaluated by a doctor. Candida is only one of many disorders than may cause white patches.

I have candida in my throat. I can't afford to go to the doctor. It's not bad it's the back of my throats?

Candida unlikely: You cannot know that you have candida of the throat unless you go to a doctor and get tested for it. Self diagnosis is extremely unreliable, and candida is an uncommon cause of white patches or any other throat symptoms. Probably you don't have it. You'll need to see a doctor if you remain concerned. ...Read more

Stop looking: Here's a good rule of thumb: if you have no symptoms and only think something is wrong because you're looking at your mouth in the mirror, then stop looking at your mouth in the mirror. A white tongue is common and unlikely to be thrush, and throats are often red. ...Read more

Dry, rough hoarse throat for 4wks. Dr says no candida etc. No lymph up. Slight chesty cough. White spots deep one tonsil and one red patch. Scared!

Dry, rough hoarse throat for 4wks. Dr says no candida etc. No lymph up. Slight chesty cough. White spots deep one tonsil and one red patch. Scared!

Post-nasal drainage: Your symptoms are probably just due to some post-nasal drainage which can cause throat pain/irritation and cough. Red and white sports on tonsils are not too concerning. The white spot is likely debris (called a tonsillolith). They are annoying but not dangerous. The red patch is probably from irritation from the drainage. Try antihistamine or steroid nose spray. ...Read more

Have had sore throat for 9 years. Ent did unevasive scope through nose. Also, had a throat scan with dye. Would the CT scan have picke up candida?

No: Candida can be diagnosed by a direct observation and culture, not by a scan. If you have had a sore throat for 9 years and there is no evidence of infection, I would strongly advise you to see a GI specialist to rule out gerd, gastro-esophageal reflux. ...Read more

I am a 37-year-old female who is suffering from a throat (oral) yeast infection.?s: how long do symptoms last and how can I never get this again?

Thrush: Thrush is never normal and requires a cause, like taking antibiotics, taking oral steroids, using a steroid inhaler or topical spray, or underlying disease like immunodeficiency. Make sure you know the cause and avoid, minimize, or treat it. In meantime, you need anti fungal medication to prevent progression of the candidal infection to 'esophagitis' for example. At minimum nystatin or Diflucan (fluconazole). ...Read more
