Hello dear,

Thank you for your contact to health care magic.

I read and understand your concern.

I am Dr Arun Tank answering your concern.

You should have taken enough topical antifungal agents. Its now timebfoe you to take oral antifungal argent.

You can take oral fluconazole tablet under your doctors guidance. As you have old infection you have to take it for long duration. Please do not withdraw treatment. Only complete treatment can treat you and prevent future infection.

Please check out your blood sugar and HIV test. As this are the two most common infection which can give rise and cause recurrence of the infection.

Please maintain good hygiene as it can equally help prevent infection.

Please wear cotton undergarments as it can have some protective values.
