Q. I am a 22 years old student suffering from candidiasis. Itching makes the problem worse. How to manage it?

A.  Candidal fungal infection can be treated with oral and or topical antifungals, depending upon the site and extent of involvement. Examples of the former are ketaconazole and fluconazole. Examples of latter are clotrimazoles, miconazoles, etc. In addition, one must try to find and eliminate the predisposing and precipitating factors, otherwise relapses are likely to occur.
