Treatment normally aims at complete relief of any symptoms caused by the yeasts. On the skin, cultures should be negative for the presence of Candida yeasts after treatment. Apart from controlled studies, however, the latter is proved in only a minority of patients. Possible outcomes of any studies are therefore complete clearing of the clinical manifestations and/or (repeated) demonstration of the lack of Candida yeasts in the appropriate specimen.
Does prophylactic therapy against yeasts make sense?
