Brief Answer: Your doctor's prescription to be followed Detailed Answer: Hi, Usually in the kit, we advise to take flucanazole in the morning, azythromycin in the afternoon and two tablets of ornidazole in the night. You have to follow your doctor's advice. One day course is enough usually. Fungal infection can occur due to intercourse, skin to skin contact, usage of antibiotics leading to flaring up of fungi etc. There may not be any major problem. Hopefully with these tablets your infection will get cured. Take care.
