What do you think about systemic yeast infection? Why is it not scientifically accepted when vaginal yeast and thrush is?
Doesn't exist: That's a little like asking why there's no "athlete's foot of the heart." there are many infections that can be external or mucosal but don't cause systemic infections because of the nature of the organism. Candidiasis is one of them. Except when it's spread through the bloodstream due to injection drug use or infected intravenous catheters, it's a fungus that affects mucosal surfaces. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Sore throat, white coating on tongue, vaginal thrush with a stinging sensation as well as some bleeding even though I'm not of my period. Why?
Vaginal itch with no discharge. Doc said its yeast infection. Given fluconazole but still symptoms are not getting better. Hurts during intercourse.
Yeast infection symptoms are milder than they were before. Not much itching or swelling but some discharge. Haven't taken anything for it. Should I?

Topical or oral drugs are highly effective, vaginal creams are available OTC and typically placed inside the vagina with an applicator to kill off the yeast that cause yeast infections.

If antibiotics help a sore throat does that mean whatever I have is not a viral infection but bacterial?
Not necessarily: At 20 years of age and a strong healthy immune system working in your defense, and no throat culture, getting better with an antibiotic tells us nothing. About 98% of upper respiratory infections are viral and even if you had a bacterial infection, you may have gotten better on your own. So i would not conclude that getting better with an antibiotic demonstrates that you had bacterial infection. ...Read more
