Azole resistance?: If each yeast episode respond well, then you may need evaluation for underlying causes (especially diabetes, antibiotic treatment, etc). Or take fluconazole routinely once a week. If your yeast episodes don't get better with treatment, then you may have Candida glabrata, which is often resistant to fluconazole and all "azole" drugs. In that case, nystatin, caspofungin, or flucytosine might work.
