What can I do for a yeast infection after already trying fluconazole?

1 doctor answer1 doctor weighed in
Dr. Foti Chronopoulos
Obstetrics and Gynecology 27 years experience
Make sure it's Yeast: Fluconazole can fail in up to 15% of true yeast infections. If you haven't been tested by your doctor this needs to be done first after failed treatment. You may have a bacterial infection that needs a different treatment. If it is yeast, terconazole cream may be more effective and, although a bit messier, has a lower failure rate.

Dr. John McMahan
ENT and Head and Neck Surgery 48 years experience
Sinus Infections: You can try drinking lots of fluids, steam, salt water nasal sprays, various herbs and neti pots. The success of these treatments is quite variable and dependent on how severe the infection is, how long you have had it, the severity of your allergies, septal deviations, nasal polyps, etc. Etc. See your ENT doc if the sinus issues persist... They can become serious or chronic if you delay too long.
