I've got a yeast infection from the heavy antibiotics I'm on due to a raging kidney infection, and have a MAJOR history of both so I feel your pain.
I'm on the antibiotics for - at least - another week and a half, so my rheumatologist talked to my GYN and he told her to have me use the Monistat 7-day (just for the itching, really) and then when my antibiotic treatment is up he's going to call in a prescription for Diflucan for me, which seems to work about half of the time for me. It's class C during pregnancy, but (hopefully) killing off the yeast infection is more than worth it to me.
Does Diflucan not work for you?
Diflucan is really good for killing candida albicans, which is super common, but is not the stuff I get. I usually get candida glabrata or candida tropicalis, for whatever reason, and so diflucan does exactly nothing for it. I'm not aware of anything besides Gynazole that will kill glabrata (which is what I *think* this one is, but I'm not sure), but if anyone knows of anything, I'd be quite grateful.
hi, i have a the same situation... i have try number of cream but nothing seem to work. Gynazole is the only the solution for me, but i can not get it due to recall of the drug. If anyone have solutions please share. thanks
