Medinfo's easy to understand, generic information about thrush, the widely used term for common fungal infections caused by Candida albicans.
search health books site map
Thrush is the widely used term for a common fungal infection caused by Candida albicans. Usually this takes the form of trivial vaginal or mouth infections, although it can affect the body more widely and seriously on rare occasions.
Vaginal Thrush
This causes itch and a cheesy discharge. The area is often redder than usual. It is often painful too, especially on intercourse, and may be associated with frequency of passing water and burning or pain on passing water. It may, therefore be confused with bladder infections ( cystitis ). Thrush, however is usually associated with itching, which cystitis is not.
Oral Thrush
This may cause a sore mouth and throat, and as well as redness, it is characterised by white discharge on the surface. Babies, especially those being bottle fed, may suffer from this, as well as adults.
Nappy rash
One cause of a persistent nappy/diaper rash is infection of the area with thrush.
The cause is a fungus which is found widely in nature (Candida albicans), and indeed, is frequently present in the mouth and motions of people in good health. It seems that it is at periods when the defence mechanisms are down that it actually causes a problem. This can be when physically or mentally "run down", in women either pregnant or on the oral contraceptive pill, in diabetes and people either on steroids, or whose immune systems are suppressed.

Fungi and Human Disease
Humans have a high level of innate immunity to fungi and most of the infections they cause are mild and self-limiting. This resistance is due to:
  • 1. the fatty acid content of the skin, 2. the pH of the skin, mucosal surfaces and body fluids, 3. Epithelial cell turnover, 4. Normal flora, 5. Transferrin, 6. Cilia of the respiratory tract.
When fungi do pass the resistance barriers of the human body and establish infections, the infections are classified according to the tissue levels initially colonized. A. Superficial mycoses - infections limited to the outermost layers of the skin and hair.

Treating and Preventing Fungal Infections Naturally
There is a strong connection between what you eat and the health of your immune system. Nevertheless, nutritional approaches to prevent and treat conditions like candidiasis (fungal, yeast infections) are complicated and controversial. While there isn't a magic recipe that prevents or treats yeast infections in everyone, following some basic guidelines may lower the risk of yeast becoming a problem. Most nutritionists agree that sugar, yeast, dairy, wheat, caffeine, nicotine and alcohol are the main culprits because they help yeast to grow. In people with healthy immune systems, the body is usually able to fight off the excess yeast made by these products. But for people with weakened immune systems, yeast can grow out of control, leading to certain kinds of fungal infections, like oral or vaginal candidiasis, or more seriously, esophageal (in the throat/esophagus) candidiasis. To prevent this, nutritionists recommend eating as little as possible of these foods that contribute to the excess production of yeast. Another approach is to eat larger amounts of foods that may suppress the growth of yeast. For example, garlic is believed by some nutritionists to have natural antifungal properties and may help to prevent candidiasis. Fresh garlic is considered best, although commercial garlic "pills" offer the advantage of reduced odors. Fresh garlic can be mixed into other foods, eaten raw after removing the dry outer skin, or minced and put into empty gelatin capsules, up to six cloves a day.

Basic Mycology


Clinical Manifestations of Fungal Sinusitis
Case Reports
In 1978, Titche presented a search of 110 cases, including 25 cases from the Sudan, where a particularly aggressive form of the disease was seen. Aspergillus flavus was the most common cause. Fungal sinusitis has emerged as a more vital health problem in modern times because of increased travel into and out of endemic areas, immune deficient states such as AIDS, immunosuppression for transplantation and from chemotherapy, and the more prevalent use of long-term, broad-spectrum antibiotic therapy. Poorly-controlled diabetes remains a problem. However, improved means of clinical detection and laboratory diagnosis have more clearly identified affected individuals. Mycology
Fungi are found mainly in air, dust, soil, plants, and decaying organic matter. They adhere to dust particles and are inhaled and deposited on the nasal and paranasal sinus mucosa. The warm, moist environment of the upper respiratory tract is an ideal environment for the proliferation of these organisms. However, they are rarely pathogenic because host resistance is high except under favorable growth conditions in highly susceptible individuals. Fungi are closely related to bacteria. They possess a unique property called dimorphism, meaning that they may exist both as a spore form and as a branching, mycelial form, depending on environmental conditions. There is a wide range of morphologic types. The presence or absence of segmentations or septa of the hyphae often distinguishes the species. The hyphae branch like a tree from a central stem or from a common node such as Rhizopus. The terminal buds may exhibit a spherical sporangia or are arrayed in clusters like the conidiophores of Aspergillus. These fungi grow best on Sabouraud's agar. They are, however, difficult to grow and it may take weeks to produce identifiable colonies. The most commonly seen mycotic organisms in the Western world are Aspergillus, Mucor, Rhizopus, and Alternaria.

Fungi are ubiquitous organisms capable of colonizing almost any environment, including virtually all humans. They grow in irregular masses and can be broadly divided into two basic forms: molds and yeasts. Molds are made up of long, multinucleated filaments, or hyphae, that grow continuously at the apical tip. By comparison, yeasts spend the main phase of their life cycle as a unicellular organism, and they usually reproduce by budding.

Nail Fungal Infections (Onychomycosis)
After Hours Care Contact Us General Information ... What's New?

Nail fungal infections deserve special mention. Why? Because of their high prevalence (15-20%) and the relatively recent introduction of high-tech drugs which make the previously-untreatable treatable. Patients with early toenail infection notice white or yellow discoloration of the nail. As infection progresses the nail becomes brittle and debris begins to collect under the distal nail. Advanced infections usually demonstrate extreme thickening of the nail plate and some loss of nail adhesion, making it easy for the nail to snag and come off, sometimes painfully so. When infection of the fingernail(s) occurs, the nail usually takes on a moth-eaten appearance. Diagnosis:
Other disorders like psoriasis and eczema can cause nail changes that mimic fungal infection, so it is recommended that the fungal cause be confirmed by examining some nail scrapings under the microscope or by plating them on special culture media. Causes:
Nail infections are caused by several types of fungi though most are caused by a specific skin fungus (dermatophyte) known as T. rubrum. This is the same organism that causes most athlete's foot, which is discussed separately. Studies show a surprising genetic susceptibility to this infection. If a parent has toenail fungus, then you may get it given the right circumstances.
