a. eyes
b. ears
c. nose

Idea!

Its leukoplakia, not candidiasis, am sure.
and the answer should be perineum.

I think its e.perineum ..... All other systems have equal chances of effecting but i think its mouth>perineum>eye>scalp order...

mouth and perineum normally have organisms but it started growing when immunity is low but other site require infection or exposure to occur so its e.. and other system is involved when immunocompromised but it does not look like that and no exposure.

Default sorry i took so long. answer is E.

sorry guys....:sorry:.... kinda dozed off there.

candida species are common causes of oral thrush and diaper dermatitis in infants (diaper rash). thrush consists of white, curdlike plaques on the tongue, gums, and buccal mucosa that are difficult to remove. the skin manifestations include a beefy-red maculopapular rash that may coalesce and form satellite lesions. intertriginous areas, especially in the diaper area (perineum), also are usually involved.

and..... candida infections of the eyes, ears, nose and scalp are usually not associated with THRUSH. disseminated candida is most common in an immunocompromised host (and this im sure everyone knows)
