get a fungal culture and antibiotic sensitivity done.
choose drugs listed s4 sensetive,rememember to choose a lower cost and lower spectrum drug since you have already done your sensitivity test.
you will have to choose a route of administration ie im ,iv or oral.
since your problem is systemic you hcan not use topical antibiotics.

Hi, i am 32 and also suffer from systemic candida for the last 2 years. So i know exactly how you feel and your frustration. Doctors dont seem to recognise this condition and have no solution, any medicine you take only works while you on it and when you stop it comes back. I have tried multiple antifungal tablets and all the over the counter pharmacy products without success. I have been slowly working my way through alternative/natural/homeopathic type options including acupuncture with not alot of success. I am on the strict diet too which is difficult and probiotics everyday. Am now trying colonics so we will see if that works. So far i am feeling somewhat better in general with more energy but the vaginal discharge is still there.

Hello, Welcome to HealthcareMagic!
I definitely am concerned with your problem but sorry to say that you have described it in very vague manner. Having 'systemic candida' for 'ten years' due to 'some examination'.
Please get yourself checked by a general physician (MD Medicine): who will be able to evaluate you properly. Some tests may be necessary like proper material for fungal & bacterial culture as well as antifungal & antibiotic sensitivity testing. Please let physician decide the drugs & duration of therapy for a cure. You may or maynot require topical medications.
Good luck.
