Hey guys, I have white layer on my tongue I assumed it’s some type of fungus maybe candida.

However I asked myself if I have fungus could it be in my GI track too ?

So I did a stool test, results of fungi turned to be negative is it really accurate and does it mean I don’t have any type of fungi Candida included ?

Please if anyone knows anything about this let me know.

It's possible to only have the over growth in your mouth/throat. Your GI Tract has a a lot of checks and balances when it comes to that type of thing. You naturally have a certain amount of candida but but there are other factors to keep it controlled. While some factors might be off in your mouth that doesn't mean it's effecting other areas though it's possible for it too. Also, not sure what the quality is of the test you used and the accuracy level. Best to speak to doctor and get the antifugal treatment.

I guess I have it in mouth “white layer” and throat “phlegm”.

I think we have only this general stool test in town.

Anyway thank you for the info, I guess I will have to make an appointment with my doctor.

That sounds like thrush. The doc should be able to give you a solution to rinse your mouth with. I've had that issue after taking steroids. The meds work really well.

Antibiotics will cause that. There are different names for the medicine but the key ingredient is nystatin. The form is one you swish in your mouth and swallow
