Treat A Yeast Rash
Overgrowth: Normally, both yeast and bacteria live in the vagina. There is a symbiosis of normal flora of sorts.

Diflucan (fluconazole) kills off that unopposed yeast growth. ...Read more

Azole resistance?: A small percentage of vaginal yeast infections are caused Candida types resistant to the most commonly used yeast treatments (the "azole" drugs -- miconazole, clotrimazole, fluconazole, etc).

I suggest you hold additional doses and contact the doctor or clinic treating you in the morning. ...Read more
