I am believed to havea penile yeast infection. I've treated with Fluconazole and monstat 7. How long should it last? I've treated it with medication for 3 days and creme for 6 days.
Maybe not yeast: Persistence after these treatments suggests the problem may not be yeast; or a yeast infection resistant to the "azole" drugs. Often the diagnosis of a genital yeast or fungal infection is an educated guess by the doctor. Best to contact the doctor's office for advice about next steps -- which might include referral to a dermatologist. Good luck! ...Read more

What's the best medication to treat yeast infections that a doctor can prescibe? Excluding diflucan (fluconazole)
I have a yeast infection and my doctor prescribed me a generic brand of diflucan (fluconazole). Can I drink wine while taking this medication? The wine is 5% alch.
Not a great idea: Wine or alcohol is metabolized through the liver, and fluconazole also depends on the liver for processing. You don't want to over do it, so the professional advice here is to abstain. You want to get better and get this infection over with, rather than cause some other problems like liver damage. Sorry but that's the truth as I see it. Call your doc if you have other major concerns. ...Read more

I am taking fluconazole 400mg/day for my systemic candida. I there health dangers with the drug at that dose for 6 weeks?
Fluconazole use: Yes - you definitely need to be monitored if you are on long term anti fungal therapy - especially at a 'high dose' as you are on. I recommend at least weekly chemistry tests (checking the kidneys) and LIVER TESTS (checking the liver functions). Fluconazole can inflame the liver - and your doctor should be helping keep track of these things. Also, I recommend you see an ID doc if you have Candida ...Read more
