Up to 5-10% of vaginal yeast infections are resistant to them. Speak with your doctor about alternate treatments, e.g. flucytosine, caspofungin, and a few others. You'll need a prescription. Good luck and happy new year! ...Read more

Clotrimazole vs miconazole, which is better?

Infectious disease docs know the most about fungal infections ...Read more
