Yeast infection in the lungs??

Hi guys, I've been having some abnormal coughs lately. I feel no other symptoms in any part of my body, it's just that when and if I cough, it's harder than normal to suppress. I produce no phlegm or other fluids. All that seems to be wrong is this harder-to-suppress-than-normal cough. I've had this cough for about 4-6 weeks and it is not related to colds in any way. Even when I am healthy, I will cough in this manner. It also doesn't matter how I cough. Whether water goes down the wrong way, or I take a hit to the chest or whatever, the coughing is the same.

I've posted in other forums and they say that I have a yeast infection in my lungs. I'm about to go grab some pills from a pharmacy as they suggested.
For some background, yes, I may have smoked some "herbs" and they might have been moldy, I'm not positive on that.

Can taking yeast infection pills potentially impact me negatively? Do I stand to lose on this risk? Also, what are the chances of this cough just passing by? It's been a couple months with no signs of improvement, yet no signs of development either. I'll wait for a response before I go ahead and self-medicate haha, but please help! :(

  • In my opinion Candida Albican is one of the several species in the body which can carry on the signs and symptoms of yeasts infection. Such Candida generally surface in the areas which are warm and humid. Vaginal yeast infection and oral yeast infection are amongst the several yeast infections.

  • You are more likely to get a fungal infection if you have a weakened immune system or take antibiotics.
