Welcome to healthcaremagic.

C.Albicans and Klebsiella are micro-organims, first one being a fungus and second one is a bacteria. They have grown in laboratory from the HVS taken from yourself.

Rest all names are antibiotics and whether those antibiotics will work against Klebsiella bacteria or not. Those with plus sign should work and clear your infection. Along with that, you may need antifungal medications for C.Albicans.

Please see your doctor with these results and take the prescribed medicines for full-length of treatment advised.

Hope everything recovers soon
