As you know, there are many forms of Candida. C. Albicans being the most common and probably the most common to CRC. Looking at your link to verify Candida does not become resistant to Nystatin I noticed the following:
However, other species of Candida (C. tropicalis, C. guilliermondi, C. krusei, and C. stellatoides) become quite resistant on treatment with nystatin and simultaneously become cross resistant to amphotericin as well. This resistance is lost when the antibiotic is removed.
How does one verify which strain(s) are the cause of their issues. My thought is that it is possible to be effected by several rather than just one. Particularly with common developing factors such as stress, abx, junk food, etc. being the primary cause of C-OG.
The most common is Candida Albicans. It is possible to have another specie infecting you. You need an specialized test to culture the yeast and identify the specie. Unfortunately, that test is hard to get.
Anyway, think that you are affected by the most common. There are other broader spectrum antifungals that can be used. I am very optimist about sodium bicarbonate used in enemas. The problem is you can not do them with the frequency I like.
