White clumpy discharge 24 he's after yeast infection treatment? (1 dose of flucanozole)

White clumpy discharge 24 he's after yeast infection treatment? (1 dose of flucanozole)

See a doctor: There is no way to know what this is without examining you. If you have failed a single oral dose of Fluconazole you might want to try intravaginal medication containing butoconazole, clotrimazole, miconazole, nystatin, tioconazole, or terconazole. But this may not be failure of treatment. It might be something else, and this is not the place for personal diagnoses. ...Read more

Whats the difference between yeast infection treatment Monistat 1 and others

Whats the difference between yeast infection treatment Monistat  1 and others

Not much: Most over the counter yeast creams are pretty similar. They primarily vary in dosing schedule and price. Just keep in mind that if your "yeast infection" doesn't clear up with one or two treatments it may actually be bacterial vaginosis, which requires a prescription written by a medical professional for treatment. ...Read more

Vaginal yeast infection since 6 mnths. several doses of fluconazole. infection comes back. vaginal swab +ve for fungus. used pessaries too. itching an?

Preventive treatment: Recurrent Candida vaginitis(CV) is usually due to failure to eradicate the infection rather than reinfection. Candida is part of the normal vaginal flora and is usually asymptomatic. Taking Fluconazole(Diflucan) weekly for 6 months, or OTC anti fungal vaginal creams for 10 days followed by a weekly vaginal suppository or twice weekly cream, can be effective in preventing reoccurrence. ...Read more

Vaginal burning sensation for the past 1 1/2 I've taken herpes med yeast uti and BV med and nothing helps. ?

Vulvodynia?: Such symptoms are not typical of any of the infections you mention, with the possible exception of yeast. That treatments for these things make no difference is further proof they are not the problem. Longstanding vaginal area burning pain usually is idiopathic vulvodynia. (The fancy name just means vulvar pain of unknown cause.) Discuss it with your doctor. Good luck. ...Read more

Does the Monistat 7 treatment creme for yeast infection work?

Yes : This medication use to be a precription formula. Don't let it's over-the-counter status make you think it's not a powerful anti yeast medication.

Diagnosed with bacterial vaginitis and yeast infection 7daysago. Took Diflucan (fluconazole) and intravaginal AB. White clumps continue and itching back. Monistat3?

Return to doctor: Hmmm... something doesn't compute. Bacterial vaginosis is not effectively treated with intravaginal antibiotics; it requires antibiotic by mouth (usually metronidazole). Fluconazole (Diflucan) usually works well for yeast, but miconazole (Monistat) is very similar and might not help if fluconazole did not. Return to be rechecked by the doctor or clinic where you were diagnosed and treated. ...Read more
