Should I talk to my doctor about my candidiasis symptoms?

You should see a doctor especially if

  • Your child has mouth sores that last more than two weeks.
  • You have mouth sores or difficulty swallowing.
  • You are HIV positive.
  • You are in treatment for cancer.
  • Your immune system is suppressed.
  • You have other unexplained symptoms.
  • Non-prescription treatments for vaginal yeast infection are not working.

Untreated candidiasis can infect your internal organs, so it's important to have a doctor diagnose the cause of the infection and treat it appropriately.
