Evaluation of the Effects of Hot Spring Water on Growth of Candida Albicans

Dr. Jhumu Manna | Dr. Asis Manna | Dr. Arnab Kr. Mandal | Dr. Debasis Das

Abstract: Long prevailing belief of getting relief from skin ailments by dipping in hot spring pools was categorically investigated in terms of inhibition of growth of Candida albicans (clinical isolate and reference strain) in addition to consequences on -germ tube- formation. Excepting rainy season (likely to be for dilution by rain water), water from Taptapani was significantly more efficacious than that from Bakreswar, though both showed promising results. The specific reasons (presence of ions etc) need to be evaluated further along with possible application on clinical settings.

Keywords: Hot spring water, Candida albicans, Germ tube, Taptapani, Bakreswar
