I had vaginal candida many times, but noone of medicaments doesn't help for a long time. I eat healthyfood, haveno problems with stomack what can I do?
Suppressive therapy: About 1 in 10 women will have recurrent fungal vaginitis. Most of them can be controlled by treating with an oral or topical anti-fungal to clear the infection and then continue that medication one day each week thereafter for about six months.
You need a workup: As you may have an immune deficiency problem, or undiagnosed diabetes, or it may be coming form your GI tract so you would need long term oral anti yeast medication and if they put you on this you will need liver enzymes monitored so call your gyn and if your gyn can't help you , your gyn should be able to refer you to the local medical school or other expert.
Different organisms.: Candida is a fungal organism(yeast) which is a different type from a bacteria. They behave and cause different types of infections. Candida is treated with anti fungals like for example diflucan (fluconazole) which comes in oral form or clotrimazole which you could find in a cream form. Bacterial infections are treated with antibiotics which come in different forms and used depending on the type of infection.
Treating vaginal Candida albicans. What type of soap should be used down there? Should I stop wearing underwear? Best safe practices?
Vaginal yeast: Vaginal yeast infection, usually caused by Candida albicans, is not sexually transmitted and there are no "safe practices" to worry about. And yeast because of tight clothing is an urban myth; underwear won't make a difference and neither will the soap you use. Make sure diagnosis is correct, get the right treatment (usually an "azole" medication), and otherwise don't worry about it.
A small blue-green circular spot underneath my toenail, in the middle. I discovered it when I removed my polish. I also have vaginal candida. Fungus?
Maybe: The two aren't related, however. Which is to say, that the candida in your vagina is albicans (most typically) and the candida (if that's what it is) on your toenail would be a different species of candida. Unless you have diabetes or some other medical condition that puts you at risk for getting candida in multiple areas of the body at the same time, the 2 aren't related. There is cream for toe!See 1 more doctor answer
I have oral, intestinal and vaginal candida. Can i take oral nystatin for several weeks, if is necessary?
Yes, even longer: Oral Nystatin is a remarkably safe medicine. Successful treatment of candidiasis often takes several months and it is safe to take Nystatin for months or even years. Besides Nystatin it is necessary to follow a diet low in sugars and simple carbs and to take probiotics. Consider anti-fungal herbs as well. See http://huff.To/15mbzao ; http://bit.Ly/1aeoabl.
Nipples have been cracked, itchy, clear yellow fluid come out of cracks, on and off since teens. Why? I also have recurring vaginal candida. Related?
Sounds like eczema: and the yellow discharge can be secondary infection of the eczema. Try OTC antibiotic ointment and make appointment to see derm for prescription medicine to clear eczema as well. You may need oral antibiotics. This is unlikely related to your candida but see derm sooner than later.See 1 more doctor answer
Why does vaginal candida itch more after eating too much sugar?
I thought "yeast loving sugar" was a myth made up by alternative medicine
No, not a myth: Candida likes warm, moist, highly glycogenated tissues which is why Diabetic patients are more severely affected.
I saw my pcp and was diagnosed with vaginal candida. I took 2 diflucan, (fluconazole) a week apart and today noticed white discharge in my inner labia. Visit need?
Only if symptoms: Only if symptoms, if they are clear a little bit of white discharge can be normal for most people.
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. That being said the question here is did your rash improve after applying the anti fungal cream? If so then most likely this was a fungal infection. If not improved consider a virtual visit with an image of the area attached and a Healthtap doctor can help you now.See 1 more doctor answer
Hi good morning. I have a vaginal discharge that is white and clumpy. About 3 weeks ago i was diagnosed with heavy candida growth. I was treated ?
Recent yeast: You may need additional treatment especially since it was very heavy. Would follow up with doctor /urgent care.
Usually not a proble: Babies transit a birth canal that often has a variety of germs including candida.It is ingested as are other germs and will eventually become part of the germs that normally populate the intestines.Rare kids will have an extensive candida skin rash at birth but most do not.The sugar in frequent feedings increase chances of oral candida & diapers trap moisture & contribute to candida diaper rash.
