What medications treat hair & scalp fungal infection from candida albicans? Cbc positive for candida albicans, had oral thrush, now pain in scalp, hair loss with visible budding yeast & pseudohyphae.

If you had. If you had oral thrush, you have to be seen by a doctor asap, to make sure you are not severely immune suppressed.
Fungal infection . You can try using Nizoral (ketoconazole) which is used for fungal infections of scalp but i doubt that it will work. I believe for best results you will need to take oral medication but ideally you should see a dermatologist for help.

Controversial. There is no easy answer to that question as there is no hard medical evidence for the "systemic yeast infection." That being said, medicine is an art and I have treated several of my patients with recurrent yeast infections more aggressively with diflucan (fluconazole).
