Itchy Vlulva After Diflucan
Groan itch have taken diflucan (fluconazole) 2x stil itchy what can I do to rid this itch what to use.
Where's your groan?: By 'groan' do you mean groin? If it's truly in groin (primarily the inner upper thigh near the pubic area), then you probably have tinea cruris (jock itch) in which case Diflucan (fluconazole) won't work; you need a topical antifungal cream. But if you're talking about vaginal itching, then you might have a yeast infection (candidiasis), which can be treated with diflucan (fluconazole). ...Read more

Yeast infection: The simultaneous use of antibiotic and antifungal may allow the perpetuation of the yeast infection by reducing the competitive bacterial flora. See what happens when the antibiotic for the UTI is stopped. It never hurts to get an additional opinion and seeing your doctor again is a good idea. Hope this corrects itself quickly. ...Read more

My vagina is very itchy, irritated, and labia minora becomes swollen and painful. Already taken diflucan. But is this more than a yeast infection?
Azole resistance?: Yeast alone still is most likely. A few percent of yeasts that cause vaginal infection are resistant to fluconazole (Diflucan®) and other azole drugs. Best to be rechecked by a doctor to confirm the diagnosis and decide whether other kinds of treatment (like caspofungin, micafungin, flucytosine, or nystatin) might be worth a try. Good luck! ...Read more
Had UTI, took Bactrim (sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim) and 1 diflucan pill to take after. 2 weeks later have a lot of burning in vulva and itchiness. Is this a yeast infection?
Frequently Bactrim (sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim) will successfully treat the bug causing your UTI. But sometimes not. I would get a mid-stream collection of your urine at the lab and send it for a culture and sensitivity. That test will what antibiotics will kill the bug. Your doc can check to see if you have a yeast infection. I counsel women to eat yogurt with live cultures when I prescribe an antibiotic.

Red Scrotum: Those agents are used for fungus in the groin area. If your doctor has diagnosed fungus using a special microscopic preparation, then you could expect clearing or improvement in a few days. Lacking improvement it would be wise to seek the care and opinion of the dermatologist. Never use cortisones on the scrotum if you can avoid it. ...Read more

I had a red, dry, itchy rash on my thigh for 2 weeks that kept getting bigger because I scratched. It stopped itching and turned purple the day I applied fluconazole left-over from vaginal candida treatment. So, was my thigh rash from candida?
Did it improve?: It is never a good idea to use prescription medication for uses other than for what it was prescribed.
