Hello I have a problem with my 23 months old daughter. She resulted positive to the Throat a Stool Tests for Candida Albicanis (due to frequent use of antibiotics). The lab tests suggested, Nystatine as a possible medicine, but the doctor ( pediatrician ) recommended the use of Enterogermina. Can you give me an opinion what should I use for her?

As you described that your daughter had Candida albicans positive, which is a fungal infection due to change in bacterial flora after use of antibiotic therapy for long time without use of enterogermina or B-complex syp along with antibiotic therapy,so you must use anti-fungal (Nystatin) along with enterogermina ampules an ampule daily to cure your girl child from candida albicans as early as possible. Hope you will get relieved your child disease soon by this suggestion. Take care,good luck
