In brief: Vaginal candida
The best way to keep from getting recurrent vaginal candidiasis is to cut sugar out of your diet.
But you also may need to re-establish healthy vaginal bacteria especially after taking antibiotics.The best way to do this is by inserting the contents of a lactobacillus acidophilus capsule into your vaginal canal. For more information, please order a consult.

I agree. Also avoid animal products that have added hormones and antibiotics.

In brief: Probiotics
Are one way. Candidiasis is generally an imbalance in gut flora and probiotics + florastor (which is a yeast that binds bad .
Bacteria and other non beneficial yeasts). A diet rich in sweets, bbq, vinegary foods feed yeast. Diflucan (fluconazole) can help but recurrent issues need to have the underlying susceptibility corrected. You may find that chinese medicine can also help.
