I wonder if (wish that) we could open that up to ALL forms of yeasts (overgrowth), fungus, molds, microbes. Overgrowth in general of all the above. Bacteria, virus.
I also wonder if it doesn't actually "kill", but rather inhibits the organism (candida), converts it back from mycelial and/or prevents hyphae formation. No confirmation on this whatsoever- but I've understood that, in vitro, Iodine is often used for this purpose (of examination).
