Diflucan resistant yeast infection

Common Questions and Answers about Diflucan resistant yeast infection

diflucan

I have a history of resistant yeast infections, but never one this resistant. Does this sound like a yeast infection to you? Also, are there any complications or long-term risks associated with having a disorder like this for so long? How urgent is my condition? Thank you very much for your help.
However, to say that green discharge is NOT a yeast infection is incorrect. That was actually my very first symptom of this resistant strain of yeast, hence the reason why I immediately went to a gyno to be tested for every single STD before jumping to conclusions. I'm still struggling with this, but I am working with my doctors to find a solution. I acquired this yeast infection after a new sexual partner, and I am negative for all STDs.
When my husband and I have intercourse for extended periods of time ( longer than an hour or so, or two days in a row) I get a severe yeast infection that is resistant to OTC products. My Dr. prescribes Diflucan, and it always takes care of it. My question is, way is this happening? It started last year. It makes me hesitate to engage in sexual activities for extended periods. Also, I do not douche. Any suggestions?
Do you think 10 days would be enough for such a resistant infection? I pray that it gets rid of this infection, I don't want it to ruin the wedding.
I've had a yeast infection since last Friday. I did the one day treatment (monistat), didn't go away. Went to the dr and got diflucan, took the pill last night. It's still not gone. Could this be something worse? or am I expecting a miracle overnight? I can always get rid of them with monistat. Anyone have a clue?
If it truely is a yeast infection, then just wait a bit and try medicine, only one, again. It will most likely heal up. However, BV (bacterial vaginosis) has very common symptoms to yeast infections. If you have this, only doctor prescribed antibiotics can get rid of it. It will not go away on it's own. So if you symptoms presist, I would head in to see your doc to have a sample taken to see if it's BV.
I would then consider doing a yeast culture to see if the yeast is resistant to the monistat. I will usually prescribe Diflucan for yeast -- it is an oral medication. I like it better, because sometimes the vaginal preparations can cause a dermatitis (reaction) that is worse than the original infection. Hope this helps!
Some yeasts are resistant to the azole drugs, like fluconazole (Diflucan). So that is a possibility. However, yeast infection doesn't usually cause discrete ulcers. If so, taking additional Diflucan won't help. I'm confused by your description of the sores. "Not open", yet looks like canker sores, which are open ulcers in the mouth. Red bumps could be yeast, or any number of other conditions. An allergic reaction to monistate or some other irritant also might be possible.
Those antibiotics caused me another yeast infection. I have tried more diflucan, monistat 7 (miconazole) and vagistat 1 (tioconazole) with no results. I tested for HIV and results were negative. Doctors are growing impatient with me. I just changed doctors and have an appt soon. I don't know what to do anymore. I am embarrased to be intimate because of the yeast, and the stubborness of it lingers in my mind. Could the yeast cause me to become infertile? What should I do?
2 years ago my doctor prescribed Diflucan and it worked well for a while (cleared up the infection right away). About 8 months ago the Diflucan stopped being as effective, and I would have to take one 150mg pill then followed by another 150mg pill 3 days later. For the past 6 months I've had a yeast infection that has not really gone away. I have relief for a couple days to a week max and then the symptoms returned.
Why can a 24 yr old female have chronic yeast infections? Basic blood tests are normal including diabetes screen, CBC liver and metabolics. Usually the infection had responded to fluconazole in the past but seems to be more resistant lately...
About a year and a half ago I got what I thought was a yeast infection....itching, burning, redness, swelling and clear/watery discharge. I had so much discharge it would run down my legs. I had to sleep with a towel between my legs at night to keep my sheets dry it was so bad. I tried over the counter monistat with no luck. I went to the doctor and had a test for yeast. The results didn't really show yeast but the doctor gave me the standard treatment of diflucan because of my symptoms.
But, the bacterial infection, I had a LOT of discharge and there was an odor. The second time I went, I had a test, and she said I def had a yeast infection, and she was concerned because there were a lot of white blood cells. She put me on Diflucan, and I took both doses and STILL had the YI. I heard your body can be resistant to Diflucan, so I got OTC Monistat and...of course I still have the itching and some discharge. It's not as intense, but it's still annoying.
At that time I did not have a yeast infection. I have told him about the constant yeast infection and he tells me how to treat it over the counter. I don't know if he is just not taking me serious or what. Everytime I see him I tell him and he doesn't really say anything. At one point I was on birthcontrol and asked him about the pill being the cause and he didn't seem to think so. I have chose not to be on the pill but yet I'm still getting them.
ok so i have a yeast infection (at least i hope its a yeast infection) It has the typical symptoms itch and irritation and off colored discharge (mainly a white to yellowish white) there is no tenderness i've tried the one day yeast infection treatment, it cleared most of my symptoms up but my question is its only been 10 days yet and the discharge hasn't gone away yet it doesn't itch and there is no smell or irritation and i'm wondering if its normal for that this to occur or if the medicati
I would think that instead you are either 1. not having a yeast infection at all, or 2. have a type of yeast infection that might be resistant to treatment. I'd see your doctor.
Since that is important to keep an eye on I have not gone off the pill but I finally did notice that if I miss a pill, I will get a yeast infection. I have been on yasmin for 8 years and I will get yeast infections/ UTI's at the drop of a hat. I am in the process of working with my doctor to get off the pill and look forward to getting back to my healthy self. Yet, I also worry that my cyst will return if I go off the pill. My only advice is to push your ob gyn to take this seriously.
need to get this out of my head- it sounds like you have more of an infection than herpes...i too am having trouble getting rid of a yeast infection. the diflucan did not work for me, neither did monistat. i have found some relief using terazol cream which is supposed to treat more than one strain of yeast, however mine is not totally gone so i completely know how you feel! i've found that doing everything possible to keep that area dry is helping ease symptoms.
If you keep getting yeast infections, you probably have a systemic yeast infection. Garden of Life Fungal Defense is the best yeast detox on the market in my opinion. One bottle is a 2 week detox. Just follow the directions and drinks LOTS of water.
The only thing that comes to mind, that might or might not have been investigated, is infection with an azole-resistant yeast, such as Candida glabrata (as opposed to C. albicans, which generally is senstive to the drugs you have had). Also, if not done, you could request referral to an ObG who also is an infectious diseases specialist. Although not common in all communities, such specialists generally can be found at academic medical centers.
Took a 150mg Diflucan pill for yeast infection on Friday which cleared up the discharge, itching so I had sex with my fiancé early this morning without a condom and it hurt like crazy and when I urinated It burned. Was I supposed to wait a while to have sex and will it come back? What should I do?
Around the middle of Feb. I began to have vaginal irritation & i thought it was going to be another yeast infection(i have at least 3-4 a year). However this was different. It started out with itching & then what felt like small tears & cracks around the vaginal area(mainly labia majora) and i also felt the cracks in my anal area...bowel movements have since been painful and bleeding occurs.
If you were my patient, I would wonder what was to be gained by giving you diflucan again. If the yeast is resistant, it doesn't seem to me that it will be very helpful. I would probably elect to treat the BV (with oral antibiotics preferably under the circumstances). I would also be concerned about a dermatitis resulting from the Terazole. Dermatitis symptoms can mimic yeast.
while this sounds like a good idea, I don't have BV, I have a yeast infection and/or just irritation. I may have some resistant strain of yeast or am just not eating the right things...My ph is 4.5 so i know it's not bacterial, I don't smell like fish... What's weird is I feel better when I eat...but then feel worse a little later. So I think it's like the yeast feeding or something.
This may be a little different than what some of you are experiencing, but hopefully this will help someone. After being on antibiotics for 7 months - I had had a highly resistant yeast infection for about 2 years - I was taking diflucan 3x a wk during that time (expensive) and finally went to a Homeopathic Medical Doctor....yes, he was an MD - they are out there! Not only was the yeast infection in my vagina, but it was throughout my entire body.
The previous dosage regime didn't work - I guess there is a faint hope that it may work if repeated - but definitely this is resistant if there is still vaginal yeast infection after 4 'one-shot' doses now. At least if there is bacterial infection as well the pap will pick it up. I have followup for the pap with my Obe next week (I will call to make sure she is in before I go).
I always get yeast infections after oral sex with my boyfriend. It hasnt always been like this but after the first time i got one they have always came back after oral. We got my boyfriend a diflucan to take but it didnt seem to help. what can i do to stop these other than stopping oral sex completely.
I got a second opinion from another OB. Upon visual examination she said I obviously had a yeast infection and prescribed me diflucan which didn't work followed by a 8 day course of tetrazole. I also started to take acidphullus capsules, eat plain yogurt reguarly and tried my best to avoid sugars. I felt better, the inflammation got much better but still wasn't 100%. I was taking Kelflex for an infection so the doctor also gave one dose of gynazole to flush out any remaining yeast.
