I read somewhere that the spit test is not very effective. If you want to know if you have candida, go to the allergist to get a skin allergy test for candida albicans. Also, get the blood antibody test for candida albicans. I have it, but it is only 1 number above the normal level. So, I do not think it is the main cause of my EC. It might be in your case, though.
