Yeast Over Growth
Lots of them: Yeast, or candida overgrowth is a controversial medical topic. There are believers and non believers. In my experience (i'm a believer) the symptoms depend on where the majority of the yeast is and what it's done. I recommend getting a book like: the yeast connection or the yeast syndrome and take the short quiz in the beginning. They list many symptoms yeast overgrowth has been believed to cause. ...Read more
Can fungus on my to nail cause yeast to multiple in my throat. I had a throat culture done and it showed that i had over growth of yeast. Please help?
No: The fungii that cause nail fungal infection (trichophyton and epidemophytum) are different than yeast infection of the throat (candidia). However if you are prone to opportunistic infection (suppressed immune system, etc) you are more likely to get both but the spread of the nail to the throat is extremely unlikely. I hope you are seeing your pcp for these matters to monitor your overall health. ...Read more
What is wrong with me? For over 2 months I have been battling a UTI that has caused the over growth of yeast and bacteria to keep giving me vaginal infections back to back. According to test results I have no current vaginal yeast or bacterial infection,
Discharge : Discharge can be normal depending on where you are in your cycle. It is an issue when it has an odor or causes bacterial or vaginal irritation. You did not mention any of these symptoms in your post, which is why I am assuming your doctor said this could be normal. Also typically uti's do not cause vaginal infections, especially when treated. If this problem persists consider asking for additional diagnostic testing. Best of luck. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I did an hvs test and the result is epithelial cell : numerous, pus cell 3 -4hpf yeast + others nill.when cultured it yielded scanty growth of candida?
Yeast? Other? STD?: Your test results are mixed. Seeing any by microscopy, with pus cells, suggests overgrowth and active infection, but "scant growh" is slightly against it. If symptoms typical of a yeast infection (vaginal irritation and itching, usually little discharge), treatment for yeast probably will help. Pus cells can suggest other infections, e.g. STD. Discuss with your doctor or clinic. Good luck! ...Read more

What causes continuous growth in the vagina which sometimes results in yeast infections and how can it be treated permanently?
Hard to say: It is hard to say how to cure this permanently. If you have some sort of other illness like diabetes that may be the cause for your recurrent infections. If not then sometimes adding a probiotic to your diet daily can help normalize the gut bacteria and in some women this helps keep down recurrent vaginal yeast infections. Keeping a normal body weight may also help. Hope you find a cure soon. ...Read more

Recently had Achilles' tendon allograft placed. Incision site wound with yeast growth. Can the infection from yeast break down the tendon graft?
Fungal infection: Yes a fungus in a wound can mean trouble for the graft. I hope u have a team of doctors looking at you. I would highly recommend an ID doctor be added to your team. You need someone to jump all over that infection and save the hard work that's been done. Did they identify the fungus? Hope things get better soon. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Had urine culture three weeks ago showed no growth had another one last week it showed yeast infection Why do both show high levels of WBC ?
Leukocytes in urine: WBCs are present in response to almost any form of inflammation. It sounds as if you have a UTI if the urine was collected by a clean midstream catch. If not, the yeast may have present in the urine through contamination from the vaginal secretions and if you have Candida vulvovaginitis that is probably the explanation. Hope this helps. ...Read more
