Candid, an azole antifungal agent, inhibits 14-α-demethylation of lanosterol in fungi by binding to one of the cytochrome P-450 enzymes. This leads to the accumulation of 14-α-methylsterols and reduced concentrations of ergosterol, a sterol essential for a normal fungal cytoplasmic membrane. The methylsterols may affect the electron transport system, thereby inhibiting growth of fungi.

How much Candid can you take?

Different types of products containing this active ingredient have different strengths. That’s why it is always important to read and follow the Drug Facts label. Most medicines warn against use of an active ingredient for longer than 7-10 days. Stop use and ask a doctor if symptoms persist.

Experience

Locally effective antimycotics include nystatin and Candid . For all practical purposes, they are not absorbed and are not available to the infant enterally. Extensive experience with their therapeutic use in infancy argues against any toxic potential. The same applies to miconazole, which is also, for all practical purposes, not absorbed.

Bifonazole, croconazole, econazole, fenticonazole, isoconazole, ketoconazole, omoconazole, oxiconazole, sertaconazole, and tioconazole are related to Candid structurally and in their action, but they have been studied less. There has been no experience with amorolfin, ciclopiroxolamin, naftifin, terbinafine, tolcyclate, and tolnaftate, or with the vaginally administered chlorphenesin.

Local antimycotics of choice during breastfeeding are nystatin and Candid. Miconazole is also acceptable. These three drugs are preferable to the other abovementioned locally effective antimycotics. If one of the other medications is urgently indicated, breastfeeding can continue with no limitation if its use is only temporary or if only small areas are being treated.

Before using Candid for ear infections

To make sure this is the right treatment for you, before you start using Candid solution in your ear, make sure your doctor or pharmacist knows:

  • If you are pregnant or breastfeeding. Although Candid is not known to be harmful to babies, you should only use medicines on the recommendation of a doctor while you are expecting or breastfeeding a baby.
  • If you have ever had an allergic reaction to a medicine.
  • If you are using any other drops or remedies in your ears.

Oropharyngeal cand > Mild disease can be treated with Candid troches (one 10 mg troche five times daily) or nystatin suspension (400 000–600 000 units 4 times daily). Oral fluconazole (100–200 mg/day for 7–14 days orally) is recommended for moderate-to-severe disease. It has been shown that a single dose of fluconazole of 750 mg was as efficacious as a full 2-week course of 150 mg daily for the treatment of oropharyngeal candidiasis. 32 Recommended therapy for refractory disease includes itraconazole solution (200 mg/day for 7–14 days orally); voriconazole (200 mg/day orally); posaconazole (400 mg/day orally) or amphotericin B oral suspension. 33 Intravenous echinocandin or amphotericin B deoxycholate at 0.3 mg/kg per day were also shown to be effective and may be used as last-resort therapy in patients with refractory disease.

Although suppressive therapy is effective for the prevention of recurrent infections, to reduce the likelihood of development of antifungal resistance it should be used only if the recurrences are frequent or disabling. Denture-related disease may require thorough disinfection of the denture for definitive cure. Oral thrush caused by inhaled steroids can be prevented by rinsing with saline after use.
