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.

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

Gallstones and white spots in stool. What can I do to prevent this?

Not much: Gallstones and "white spots" in the stool may or may not be related. Gallstones are a common condition in the human population and many times just happen for no reason at all.
White spots in the stool should be evaluated by a complete GI (gastroenterology) exam. ...Read more

Constipated off and on for several weeks. 1st noticed small dark spots throughout and now small white spots. Stool medium brown. What is going on?

Likely nothing: Abnormal. Constipation and mucus in stool may explain both dark and light spots. Drink enough water so that your urine is watery, colorless and odorless. Increase your intake of fiber. You may wish to take a fiber laxative like Metamucil to relieve the constipation. ...Read more

My stool has blood in it sometimes and mostly there are white spots and foam in it sometimes the colour of the stool. Is dark brown but only sometimes?

Speak with doctor: Would like to help but not enough information provided to offer any specific advice. The most common cause of blood in the stool is bleeding internal hemorrhoids. But there can be other causes also. If you are concerned speak with your doctor or speak with a doctor online here at Health Tap. For information on hemorrhoids see: http:///wb.

What would cause recurring small white spots / flakes in stool that are almost like seeds and don't seem to be linked to any particular food?

What would cause recurring small white spots / flakes in stool that are almost like seeds and don't seem to be linked to any particular food?

? medicines: Besides foods, the most common reason is medicines that have small capsules within a capsule that enables delivery of the medicine beyond the stomach to avoid harsh acid. There are many medicines, including over the counter or even dietary supplements that use microcapsules. However, if with pain, nausea, blood, fever, or recent change in bowel habits, would suggest following up with a doctor ...Read more

Stool paler than normal with mucus and white spots. Should I be worried? Had liver/pancreas blood tests done recently, normal results.

Stool paler than normal with mucus and white spots. Should I be worried? Had liver/pancreas blood tests done recently, normal results.

Stop worrying: If you feel generally well, are maintaining your weight, and can take part successfully in sports, then there's no reason to concern yourself with the vagaries of stool color and complexion. You describe some abdominal pain and you do need to find out whether this should be managed as functional bowel disease, or whether you have gallstones, or if there's any evidence it may be something else. ...Read more

Lately I have had white spots in my feces. The feces is a healthy brown, but is dotted all overin white spots. It began when I started to eat raw peanuts?

OK: Sounds like you answered your own question here. I suspect the raw peanuts are not being fully digested and that is what is in your stool. Try stopping the raw peanuts in your diet, and see if the problem goes away. If not, then get checked. Best wishes. ...Read more

I have spots on the insides of my thighs that itch like crazy! Is it dry skin or could it be linked to my candida overgrowth? (i'm about 95% paleo)

I have spots on the insides of my thighs that itch like crazy! Is it dry skin or could it be linked to my candida overgrowth? (i'm about 95% paleo)

See a dermatologist: Why candida overgrowth? There is always a reason. Beware of Benadryl (diphenhydramine) as it is a sleeping pill and will not reduce your itch. Claims for "paleo" diet do not make sense to scientists or physicians. You may have a type of intertrigo. Are you very heavy? ...Read more

I have been having what I think is candida in my stool regularly and massive body odor for a while. What type of practitioner should I consult?

Change your diet: You could try some of these suggestions first: eliminate starches and sugars from diet. Eat lots of veggies and protein, less sweet fruits, no starches or sguar. A clove of garlic a day inhibits yeast, and so does a supplement called capryllic acid. Take a good probiotic daily, and also one that has saccaromyces in it: that's a friendly yeast that competes with candida. ...Read more

I see white stuff attached to my stools. Appears like small white cotton balls and doesn't appear like any fluid. Is it Candida or Just Mucous? .

I see white stuff attached to my stools. Appears like small white cotton balls and doesn't appear like any fluid. Is it Candida or Just Mucous? .

Have to see it: Hi! Small amount of mucus in stool can be normal. Rectal/anal candidiasis would give you other symptoms. If this issue persists, it would be most helpful if you see a doctor and bring a sample of stool with you (in a small clean jar, can keep tightly closed in fridge for 3-5 days). ...Read more

What is the name of stool test that diagnoses presence of candida in gut?

What is the name of stool test that diagnoses presence of candida in gut?

Why ever?: Candida albicans is a normal component of the gut background flora. It can occupy up to 5% of the dry weight of your stool at any one time. Many alternative health providers try to sell the idea that this is the cause of many vague health problems and often have a list of dozens. I would not waste my time with this. ...Read more

A small blue-green circular spot underneath my toenail, in the middle. I discovered it when I removed my polish. I also have vaginal candida. Fungus?

A small blue-green circular spot underneath my toenail, in the middle. I discovered it when I removed my polish. I also have vaginal candida. Fungus?

Maybe: The two aren't related, however. Which is to say, that the candida in your vagina is albicans (most typically) and the candida (if that's what it is) on your toenail would be a different species of candida. Unless you have diabetes or some other medical condition that puts you at risk for getting candida in multiple areas of the body at the same time, the 2 aren't related. There is cream for toe! ...Read more

Candida "overtrowth": ...or "systemic candidasis" is an urban myth. I'm afraid you have been induced into some tests (probably expensive) that were unnecessary and do not explain any symptoms you may have; they don't need treatment. Candida is normal on the skin and in the intestines and genital tract. Disregard these test results and see your doctor about any symptoms or health concerns that you have. Good luck! ...Read more

I have anal pain and stool leakage after defecation for 9 months, dr said no fissure or piles. Could it be overgrowth of candida?

Had stool analysis done. Showed 'many candida albicans'. Is this bad? Does it mean I have systemic yeast? I have no stomach problems or other symptoms

No worries!: "Systemic yeast" is an urban myth -- often used to explain any number of symptoms but not an accepted medical entity, at least not by the scientific medicine community. It is normal to have yeasts in the intestine anmd to be visible in feces. Also, "stool analysis" is pretty much a waste of time and money, except in very specific circumstances and if recommended by an appropriate specialist. ...Read more

Should I have any tests done such as blood, sputum or stool, if they have found thrush (candida) in my stomach (i think) during gastroscopy?

Should I have any tests done such as blood, sputum or stool, if they have found thrush (candida) in my stomach (i think) during gastroscopy?

Not necessarily: The germs of thrush, Candida Albicans are normal findings in the GI tract. It is swallowed as a random part of our ingested material and comprises 5% +/- of our stool. When present it can form irritating patches on a variety of surfaces from the mouth to the anus and beyond. Critically ill (ICU) patients may have this germ in the blood, they are normal in your spit and stool. ...Read more

How to know if u have candida w/o going to dr. Have gas & constipated w/mucus in stool when have bm. I'm hypothyroid & wonder about a probiotic w/synth?

Where?: Candida/yeast can infect several areas of the body including mouth, esophagus, skin, vagina etc... White coating on the tongue or inside cheeks may be candida but the best way is to get your symptoms checked out by an expert to make sure there is nothing concerning going on. Once you know nothing "bad" is going on then you can use supplements and be assured that you are not masking anything. ...Read more
