Well, I'm 22 years old. My vaginal candida infections are very consistant. I've been to the doctors numerous of times. Neither of the treatment works for me. I did a treatment of my own which included water and a teaspoon of vinager on a paper towel. And inserted inside my vagina. Ate yogurt for a whole week and watched what i washed my clothes in and it helped. Wash in warm water, do not use fabric softner, and do not let her wear tight clothing. Hope this helps.

Since this is a yeast infection and fungal in nature, there are a few home remedies available but you may not want to try it for few reasons.First, since it involves covered body organs like vagina and vulva, any home made ointment and topical creams may be bothersome as compared to cases when the infection is on the skin in the hands. Give er yoghurt to eat, avoid tight pants and if has started menstruating, limit the use of pads and tampoons to only when she needs it.Wash the underwear in warm water. Try this out for a few days and see if there's any improvement.

I would like to suggest to go and buy your 14 year old daughter the generic miconazole 3 day or 7 day suppositories treatment. I am allergic to all the creams; it makes me itch a million times worse when it is applied to the affefcted area. If this does not, work talk to her physician an request the Fluconazole oral pill. Take it by mouth and in a day or two you feel back to normal. Best wishes for a quick recovery!

Dear Doctor Please help. My age is 53 yrs. I have been suffering from Candida for the last 6-7 yrs. After infection l suffered with gas, bloating, loose motion, white coating and rash on my penis. Infection & itching on my nose joint and underarms. All still exist. l had also been taking Alcohol for 25 years which resulted in Fatty Liver. I was prescribed Viboliv 500 mg, Heptral & Digestal. My last blood report of Liver Profile states everything to be normal but Ultrasound still shows fatty liver though reduced. Presently my condition is very bad because of Candida. I am suffering from constipation, loss of appetite, chronic fatigue, anxiety, depression, insomnia , joint pain & my face has turned thin and sunken and looking very old and wrinkled. About 2 yrs back I was prescribed Fluconazol once a week for 4 months. Later I have been prescribed Itrconazole which I have avoided because of my weak liver. Sir Please help in any way you can and guide me get rid of CANDIDA. M

I have been having vaginal dryness, itching, cracked skin, with bleeding for several years. I have been given estrogen creams , pills, none of which have done no good whatsoever. Drs always check for infection, but never find any infection. I had a hysterectomy at the age of 34 years, leaving one ovary. I am trying to manage the pain with over the counter vaginal creams and lotions, none of which give much relief. Can you tell me what might be wrong? Doris Bishop
