What are white flakes coming from the vagina? I have white flakes in my vagina so I thought it was a yeast infection so I took Monistat 7 to clear it up but the white flakes are still there!
Yeast. Yeast infections are often accompanied by cottage-cheese looking discharge and intense itching. If you have those symptoms it may still be a yeast infection and you may need further treatment. If you are at all worried about any type of sexually-transmitted infection please be tested as these can cause permanent damage to the fallopian tubes. Also please be sure your pap smear is up to date. As your symptoms have persisted I advise that you have a complete gynecological evaluation. If you have pain, fever, vomiting, or discharge with color to it then you would need an emergency evaluation.
Clear of std's. Thought I had a yeast infection. Used fluconazole 100mg for 7 days every other day and Monistat 7. Still having vagina irritation.?
Candida glabrata? The usual cause of vaginal yeast infections is Candida albicans. However, C. glabrata causes 10-15% of infections, and many C. glabrata strains are resitant to the "azole" drugs. See your doctor and ask about alternative treatments, such as nystatin, flucytosine, or caspofungin.
