Response from Dr. Reznik
Stress alone cannot cause candidiasis or thrush. The factor that you have mentioned which may explain this episode of candidiasis is the antibiotic you were on at time of presentation. Remember, there are several factors which can lead to the presence of candidiasis including the use of broad spectrum antibiotics.
I hope this helps!
