You need more expert professional care. Ciprofloxacin (Cyprotab) is exactly the wrong thing for yeast -- it will make it worse. The other two are "azole" drugs, and 10-15% of candida yeasts are resistant to all azoles. Find an infectious diseases expert: confirm diagnosis of vaginal candida; if confirmed, determine susceptibility to azoles; if resistant, alternate treatments are available. Good lk
