Candida (1 of 2)

Candida (1 of 2)
Candida infection of the vocal folds, often caused by inhalation of aerosolized steroid for asthma. Usually seen with higher strengths of medication and frequent dosing; also more likely if antibiotics used at same time (Lab). This can look like mucus accumulation, but does not move or clear away even with aggressive throat-clearing.
