Add an oral antifungal

Detailed Answer:
Hello and welcome to ask a doctor service. I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

Seems like you have a yeast infection. I suggest you to continue with clotrimazole 1% cream (candid cream), twice daily, for a week..In addition I suggest you to take a single dose of an oral antifungal e.g fluconazole 150mg tablet.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if you need any more assistance.

Hello Doctor, Thanks ton for the advice.

Else to inform.. Earlier I had applied Candid-CL Gel which is Clindamycin 2 %W/W+Clotrimazole 2 %W/W 3-4 Times. Should it be continued or should I switch to some other cream like.. Candid Cream (Clotrimazole -1% w/w) or Candid-V Gel (Clotrimazole -2% w/w).

Reagrds,
doctor
