Ok, thanks for the links. Though candida is of the fungus family, like i think i mentioned, you'll notice when they speak of such things they list the illnesses separately: athlete's foot, swimmer's ear, ringworm, dandruff, Valley Fever, fingernail and toenail infections, rosacea, and yeast infections.

What I'm trying to get at is that if you have toenail fungus as with kkkk's husband, he does not have the same symptoms as some of us with symptoms like panic attacks and gripey intestines, and many other things, etc. So how could kkkk say that because her husband's exterior skin and nail fungi diminished, it would also work for other types of fungi, esp. yeast, which is listed separately? I know this sounds like a stupid question, but...

I'm asking this because in pharmacology they treat yeast differently than a skin fungus. For yeast (C. albicans) they use fluconazole (Diflucan) or ketoconazole (Nizoral) or Nystatin and for exterior skin fungus they use itraconazole (Sporanox) or Lamisil works better.

So what works for toenail fungus, won't necessarily work good for intestinal c. albicans. The strain of yeast (fungus) might be different or mutated found on nails or skin, different from the candida in the digestive tract.

Yes, they are of the same family, but a person may have better results if the type of fungus is treated specifically, not generally. Hope that clarifies my question.
