    I’ve been experiencing what I believe is a yeast infection, so I ordered a Doctor’s Data Comprehensive Stool Test with Parasitology x3 and it returned negative for fungal overgrowth.

    It did not detect ANY candida albicans which is shocking to me considering my symptoms;

    -Fatigue
    -White coated tongue/bad breath
    -Brain fog
    -Craving for carbs
    -Skin issues(scaling, cracking – genital to anus- smells like fungus)
    -Yellow toe and hand nails
    -Eczema in Palm of hand and feet

    The amount detected was so insignificant the lab did not include a Sensitivity/Susceptibility test for it.

    Does this test confirm I do not have candida overgrowth and likely something else is wrong? Or did the test simply fail to detect?
    Am I missing anything important other than my candida concern? Should I retest?

    Can anyone please advise or comment on the report below?

    Thank you.

    What we recommend on the forum is the candia 5 test which is pretty cheap and you can take it at home. This test looks at different things.

    Some tests can be inconclusive.

    Do you have rectal itching?

    Raster,

    Sometimes, only if I don’t put on Vaseline as soon as I come out of the shower. Also during the winter dry cold days.

    I will look into that test.

    Many people suggested based on my symptoms, I do in fact have a bad case but I just wanted to know the severity inside me.
