Can try herbs too: Generally probiotics won't directly kill candida but will help to replace candida that have been killed by drugs or herbs. Many herbs kill candida like pau d'arco, garlic & oregano oil. If this doesn't help you can ask a doc to prescribe antifungal meds. A low-starch diet is also important.
