Clinical management of oral and perioral candidosis

Dermatologic Clinics
P G Fotos, J P Lilly

Abstract

Oral candidosis is a diagnosable and treatable mucosal disease that may be complicated by various other local or systemic disease conditions. Dependable diagnosis always should include a combination of clinical signs and symptoms suggestive of candidal disease as well as positive cytologic or direct culture results. The management of candidal infections should be individualized for each patient, with concern for interactions with current medications, immune status, other concurrent mucosal diseases, and exogenous infectious sources. In selecting the appropriate therapeutic agent(s) the clinician should consider patient health factors, location and severity of infection, and the probability of chronicity.
