Forgive my frankness: Mucosal and skin candida are obvious infections that are cured in a week or two by scientific Rx. By contrast, 'systemic candida' is a scam. You'll be persuaded your symptoms result from it, you'll be given all manner of things to take to manage it, but you will never be cured. That's how the scam operates. Your symptoms have some other cause. A scientific physician or holist can help you find it. ...Read more

Urban myth: Apparently you didn't like my previous reply. Sorry, but it's true: there is no evidence for candida overgrowth as a significant health problem. There probably are few if any doctors on HealthTap who believe in it or can recommend treatment. As suggested previously, you'll do best by seeing your regular doctor and having whatever symptoms you have professionally evaluated and treated. Good luck. ...Read more

Doesn't exist: Contrary to what you might read on the web, people do not get candida in the gut. The only exception is in severely immunocompromised people, such as those with advanced aids, who may develop candidiasis involving the esophagus.

HI, I have a candida infection under my armpit that was unresponsive to cortisone treatment. What can I get over the counter now that I am on holiday?
Fungal cream.: Cortisone does not treat fungal infections, and, in fact, can make them much worse. If you use an over the counter fungal med (Like lotrimin (clotrimazole) or nystatin) and the rash does not get better, see a doc for evaluation. Also avoid fragrances and harsh soaps which cause skin irritation and will add to your problem. Avoid animal products with antibiotics used in their feed, as well. ...Read more

Intertrigo: Yeast is not likely. Cortisone is not good for yeast, sometimes makes worse. Most likely it is chaffing and tight clothing in hot weather + travel. Shower very beneficial. Not too hot, no scrubbing. Antiperspirant, even if it stings, may help. Hydrocortisone added if severe itch. Do not shave under arms. If persists, a good dermatologist will help you. ...Read more
Suspected balanitis for 1 year, swab showed candida, anti fungal treatment, circumcision, hydrocortisone all failed!? What could be causing it?
I had a red, dry, itchy rash on my thigh for 2 weeks that kept getting bigger because I scratched. It stopped itching and turned purple the day I applied fluconazole left-over from vaginal candida treatment. So, was my thigh rash from candida?
Did it improve?: It is never a good idea to use prescription medication for uses other than for what it was prescribed. That being said the question here is did your rash improve after applying the anti fungal cream? If so then most likely this was a fungal infection. If not improved consider a virtual visit with an image of the area attached and a Healthtap doctor can help you now. ...Read more
