Hello,

Thnx to contact us. I understand your concern.

If I am your doctor I advice you to confirm the diagnosis first. If you can do Grams staining from the nearby laboratory it will confirma the diagnosis and you can also do antifungal sensitivity testing. since some candida species are resistant to the drugs routinely prescribed.
I will be happy to answer more of your concerns, kindly know me,
Wish you a very good health at health care magic.
