I know that candidia (a type of yeast) can interfere with LDN, so my best guess is to not take the LDN until the infection has cleared up. At this point, it sounds like you've only just started LDN at a lower-than-maximum dose, so if I were in your shoes, I'd probably just start the LDN over when you are in the clear.
