Ask a Doctor and Get an Answer to Your Medical Question ASAP
Hi I’m Dr. Mark. I’m a board certified physician and happy to assist you with your infection. Is this a vaginal yeast infection?
Did you get oral fluconazole? Fluzone is the influenza vaccine.
Some women do get recurring yeast infections n Candida albicans is the most frequent cause. Occasionally there are other candida species that don’t respond to fluconizole due to drug resistance. We then send a swab to the lab for culture and drug sensitivity. Other anti fungal medication is then used. Such as terconazole or ketoconazole. Which is used is based on the culture and sensitivities. Then often we use maintenance once a week medication to prevent reinfection. I’d see your gynecologist to have a culture taken.
