Yeast infection on nose

Common Questions and Answers about Yeast infection on nose


Avatar n tn I went in to the doctor last friday 08/17/07 and was diaginosed with a yeast infection. It has be very painful urination, swollen, itchy etc. The doctor said to clear it up to take one dose of diflucan (pill) and to use monistat (cream) The painful urination isn't as bad, (I also started taking cranberry pills) but it's still itchy. I've also been using Vagisil cream. It's been over 7 days and I thought with the pill and everything it should have cleared up within 3-5 days.
Avatar n tn It is a yeast infection. A yeast infection can be under your nails, on your skin, throat, stomach, etc. Thrush is VERY painful, and you would know if you had it. It looks a lot like a yeast-like infection in general, but a lot more painful. You need to see an ear, nose, and throat doctor and have a culture done to see what it is. Your boyfriend may have carried some yeast on him that passed into your mouth. Get checked and let us all know what he/she said. Hope you feel better soon!
Avatar n tn Do you have any ideas what it could be if not a yeast infection? my symptoms match the yeast problem, afew docs have told me I don't have thrush but my tongue is 'upset' for sure, the hot/numb sensation across my forehead worries me and I have told this to the doc before but no one seems to do anything. could it be thyroid u think? or maybe just mental and I'm doing it to myself?
Avatar m tn the yeast spit test is a total scam!! you've posted this now on multiple forums. we all have yeast in our bodies - it's completely natural. Usually sites trying to convince you that all your woes are due to yeast overgrowth in the gut are trying to sell you a product and they push the spit test to try to get you to buy their product. eat your veggies and get your whole grains and your body takes care of many things naturally.
Avatar m tn Does having headache, dizziness, blocked nose, feeling cold with recurring yeast infection has anything to do with STDs? Or do i have a case of the common flu. These symptoms have been there for almost a week now. Thanks.
Avatar f tn I'm miserable and my results don't come in for another 4 days, so my question is could I go to the pharmacy and get an over the counter yeast infection cream like Monistat or something and try to treat the yeast infection while I am taking acyclovir? Would it interfere with anything else going on? I don't have a primary care doctor so I got tested at a walk-in clinic, so asking my doctor about a simple question like this isn't ideal. Any input would be great thank you!
Avatar f tn As all the Eustachian tubes are linked and the infection has to be wiped out, you can also put the silver in your nose with a dropper and your ears as well this does NO HARM million's of us have used it with great results and even life threatening situations and NO SIDE EFFECT'S or damage like you get from drugs.
Avatar n tn He presribed Cerfixme and Azithromycin 3 days ago but my condition seems to have gotten worse.Could this be a yeast infection?Can i be tested for that?Or could it be something else?What should i do?
Avatar m tn I try to ejaculate 3-4 times per week, semen volume is now back to normal (i think) Fluconozole seems to do something when I have my flare ups, and things go back to normal for a month or two, though I dont really have any symptoms of a yeast infection. Wondering if its a yeast in my prostate? I've not been on any anti-biotics since May and it's August now. I'm just really frustrated at dealing with this for the better part of the last year. Any ideas or tips on how to reduce prostatitis?
Avatar n tn I continue to have a bad ordor in my nose, like a bread yeast smell, and whenever I get anything caught in my throat, I sneeze. I also have a hard time smelling and tasting food. What could be the problem?
Avatar n tn In late December, I had a yeast infection on my genitals. At the same time/slightly before this I notice dry flaky skin at the corners of my mouth. I treated the penile infection with a 2% (I think) miconazole nitrate cream; Applying for the most part, twice a day. Fast forward several months, I have what looks like sebhorreic dermatitis on my forehead (starting from above/in between my eyebrows), sides of my nose spreading downward around my mouth. and a patch on the back of my neck.
Avatar n tn the yeast infection medication BURNS so bad that I cant apply it. And then afterwards it seems like the yeast infection makes the itch worse later on. Then here RECENTLY i started seeing like a yellowish green discharge, NOT much...just like little here and there when I put my finger down there and slide it across upward. Looks simliar to Mucus that comes out of your NOSE. I haven't noticed an odor really.
Avatar m tn I am dealing with my first yeast infection (I'm 28) and I am starting to wonder why I am still experiencing symptoms after treatment. My symptoms started after I had been swimming a lot in a quarry. I had external vulval redness and vulval/anal itching, tingling, discomfort. No discharge that I noticed. I let the infection go for 6 weeks before seeing a Gyn. I tried treating at home first, with monistat 3 - and when that didn't work at all - natural remedies like tea tree oil, but to no avail.
Avatar m tn With apology, the medical advice on this forum is limited to STDs, not to symptoms, diagnosis, or treatment of other kinds of genital infection such as yeast. I cannot say whether or not your yeast infection has cleared up or whether the redness of your penile skin is now normal. These are issues for your dermatologist.

Avatar n tn She just looked inside my nose and said that it's a sinus/staph infection. She said it's not the serious staph and that everyone has staph in their nose. She put me on a second round of antibiotic right away instead of messing around with the first round because she thought that they swelling was unusual. The antibiotic I'm on is called "Avelox" and I saw improvement with the swelling in <24 hrs. The swelling and paint is almost completely gone! What a relief!
Avatar n tn My lab has an infection on the tip of his ear, and antibotics are not helping. Any other suggestions.
Avatar n tn Also try dabbing betadine (yes it is expensive) inside your nose. I think it is actually a yeast type of infection in my situation.
Avatar m tn If it just appeared, some things that might be the cause could include- eczema (maybe even a very mild case of it) superficial yeast infection psoriasis The best way to tell for sure what the cause is, would be to get to your doctor to have it checked out.
Avatar f tn My dog minnie went to the vet a few days ago for diarreha, and I also mentioned to them that she had (what appeared to be) a scar on the top of her nose. She tends to rough house a lot with our other dog and dig in the dirt sometimes, so it wasn't surprising. The "scar" was just kind of like a rough lump on her nose. It has since came off and there is hair missing. It just doesn't look like a cut or anything like that to me anymore...I'm going to try to attach pictures.
Avatar n tn Hello, Without examination,confirmation of a diagnosis is tough but it can be pityriasis versicolor.It is a common skin infection caused by the yeast Malassezia furfur. Treatment involves topical and oral antifungal medicines. Most cases of fungal infections respond to over-the-counter products, which contain any of several basic ingredients: miconazole, tolnaftate, terbinafine,ketaconazole and clotrimazole.You can consult a pharmacist and get any cream or lotion containing these ingredients.
Avatar f tn You are not taking an inhaled steroid which could cause a thrush (yeast) infection. You should see an ENT to see if there is some kind of an infection in your sinuses though. Also, try researching parosmia and phantosmia. They could be related to your problem.
Avatar n tn Acouple days after I noticed the rash and burning discomfort, my wife also began to experience a burning sensation on her vagina. She took 3-day over the counter yeast infection medicine, and she says that the buring sensation has almost completely gone away. If it was Herpes that I transmitted to her, would the yeast infection medicine that she took aliviate the burning sensation? Could it be that both me and my wife just have a plain yeast infection? Please help!
Avatar n tn I was freaked out that it was a STD, and finally got the guts to face the music and go see a NP who said it is very well a yeast infection on the outside of my vagina. (I have no abnormal discharge). She gave me a 3 day regim which seemed to cure the itchiness, but made the area more red and irritated. So then I got more guts and finally went to a gyno who cultured the red irritated area and checked it out. She told me that she saw nothing abnormal but saw some yeast.
5864500 tn?1380893197 Seborrheic dermatitis is a common skin condition that causes flaky,dry, white to yellowish scales to form on oily areas esp under the nose or anywhere on face. People with seborrheic dermatitis produce too much sebum (the natural skin oil). Later, pityrosporum yeast grows excessively in the sebum, sometime along with bacteria, making the dermatitis more persistent. Topical antifungals and mild steroids are the usual treatment and combination of the two can be used to treat stubborn patches.
Avatar f tn My history: excess yeast common, get at least one yeast infection a year and several mild ones cleared up with just topical cream for a day.
Avatar n tn I found this post while searching because as I have aged, starting in my 20's, sometimes the smell of my skin and nose smell differently in different ways,usually a weird bready-chalky smell. I have found out that that means I have a candida infection, which is not just a yeast infection in the way an internist would define it to us ( which is a parasite infection-usually it's explained as 'microbial' ) Today i am very itchy and smell funny and well, it's a long story.
Avatar f tn Finally, some patients have doctors who have diagnosed a yeast infection in the gut, which cause the smell which comes out through the sinuses or breath, and prescribed Fluconazole 150mg. This looks somewhat promising, but Fluconazole must be administered by a doctor at any rate. Here is the Medhelp thread for that: http://www.medhelp.
Avatar f tn Recently, in the last three months that same odor is now on the side of my nose. It is where that little clef on the side is. I wash, but the odor comes back. Can this be a warning of some kind of medical issue, like an infection somewhere in the body?
