7 1/2 month of yeast infection finally gone
I've posted, along with many other women about the dreaded yeast infection that won't go away. I tried everything, eating yogurt, taking 2 diflucan at once, OTC applications, followed the advice of a web page to use hydrogen peroxide as a douche (I don't use these because they aren't good for you), but was willing to try anything. The list goes on for 7 1/2 miserable months, but finallt my Dr prescribed Terconazole 0.4%. It's a 7 day treatment cream you inject at night when you go to bed. Second day into treatment and I had no itching. When you itch so bad you bleed I needed healing, so that part took a bit longer to heal. From Oct 17 on I've been itch, burn free.
I also learned that a certain smell under my breast was yeast; I learned it can grow anywhere. So another advice is after you shower be careful about drying when you have one, it didn't dawn on me that yeast can grow anywhere that gets damp and hot. I think I've been in menopause which you sweat a lot, and I already do because of my lupus. It's gone now too, some Nystat (sp?) cream under them works.
I hope this helps this helps other women. I know some of you have had this longer then I did, but no matter how long or short it's a nightmare for us all.
So I knock on wood that this doesn't come back. I forgot to add I take two Pro-botic pills a day.
