What is the best treatment for glabrata vaginitis?

What is the best treatment for glabrata vaginitis?

Candida Glabrata: This is a good question! Candida Glabrata is often resistant to our standard anti-fungal vaginal creams (like monistat, lotrimin, and terazol) as well as the standard oral medication: difluan. There are other, stronger antifungal agents, but they may carry more risk to your health. I usually prescribe compounded Boric Acid vaginal capsules for this condition. It works most of the time. ...Read more

I had a gyno exam and was diagnosed with chronic vaginitis and given treatment for me and my partner. Does this mean it's an STD? Should I be worried?

I had a gyno exam and was diagnosed with chronic vaginitis and given treatment for me and my partner. Does this mean it's an STD? Should I be worried?

Possibly STD: You should ask your doc who treated you. But the fact that you and your partner were both given treatment seems to point towards an STD. The three most common causes of Vaginitis are Bacterial Vaginosis, Canadidsis, and Trichomoniasis. All of them require antibiotics but when treating STD, you usually treat patient and partner. You should be worried this reoccurs. I advise protection (condom) ...Read more

Can trichomoniasis cause bacterial vaginitis or keep it reacurring? I'm wondering if I have it. My BV won't go away after 2 unsuccessful treatments.

Can trichomoniasis cause bacterial vaginitis or keep it reacurring? I'm wondering if I have it. My BV won't go away after 2 unsuccessful treatments.

Keep working on it: Even without trich or anything else, BV often keeps returning; it can be difficult to cure once and for all. Keep working with your doctor about additional treatment options. Trichomonas doesn't cause BV to recur, but it's reasonable to be tested to be sure. Probably that was done, but maybe only by microscopy of discharge. Ask your doctor about the newer and much more accurate trich DNA test. ...Read more

Are there any ways that naturally to cure vaginitis?

Are there any ways that naturally to cure vaginitis?

Yes: The normal vaginal environment - ie a microenvironment that has low levels of bacteria and yeast/fungus - is maintained by a very high acidity level - what is called a low ph of 4. A natural method to urge the vagina to keep a very high acid level is to use borate (boric acid) capsules in the vagina (from a compounding pharmacy) can help keep the acidity at the level it needs to be. ...Read more
