It can work well: In cases where creams are not effective, one dose of Diflucan (fluconazole) can be quite helpful. Yes there are some reports of increasing resistance to diflucan, (fluconazole) so it is worthwhile to try the creams for a bit longer (or even switching creams) before moving on to this med.
