Difference between fluconazole and diflucan

Common Questions and Answers about Difference between fluconazole and diflucan


Avatar n tn This is soooooooo aggravating and frustrating and painful and itchy and I really don't know what to do. I am taking Fluconazole (150mg) and I have a 1% Hydrocortisone Canestan cream...sound right? Thanks for any info and insight!
Avatar n tn It's true that both are yeasts, but the difference between the two is much the same as the difference between a tomato and the fruit of the deadly nightshade.
Avatar n tn moinstat, which I used once or twice a year when I had yeast infections since I was about 20. It stung everything and the diflucan fixed nothing. I went back and asked for an std test, i have been seeing 2 guys for the last 2 months, since my soon to be ex husband is out of the pic. clamidia and gonorhea both negative, but the Dr had given me a Zithromax pack just in case and some more potent yeast infection cream. The cream hurt bad and the Zpack did nothing.
Avatar n tn I had a tear almost probably about an 1/2 long right between my vagina and anus. It burns sooo bad to wipe, pee, if I move and stretch the area in that skin. It happens after sex with my boyfriend, probably because sometimes we are rough, and there isn't enough lubrication. I have to wait a few days until it has healed to have sex again. The doctor isn't much help, she was hell-bent on thinking it was herpes.
Avatar n tn I was so annoyed when he said there is no proven connection between allergies and dizziness. He's now ordered an MRI and additional balance tests and has started talking about ruling out tumors, etc. Thanks for sharing your stories. It always surprises me how many non-allergist MD's don't understand how allergies can affect the body.
Avatar f tn ) I used to feel a rawness under the clitoris hood and between the inner labia a lot, but I haven't felt this as much sense I’ve been going to the acupuncturist. It's very rare that I feel any itchiness. My acupuncturist and the specialist seem to think these symptoms are a result from having bladder infections in the past (I have a sensitive bladder), DOES ANYONE THAT HAS A SENSITIVE BLADDER, or have had many bladder infections in the past, and HAVE SIMILAR symptoms as me?
Avatar f tn xmlFilePath=journals/ijanp/vol6n1/vaginosis.xml It goes over several similar issues and how to tell the difference between them. Hope you find an answer soon!
Avatar f tn I just have a another couple questions. Is there a difference between an over the counter fluconzole such as diflucan and a prescribed fluconzole? Are there any major side effects to an oral anti fungal? And lastly is it abnormal that it takes this long to treat a fungal/yeast infection and having to use different kinds of products?
Avatar m tn I am a virgin, so that rules out STDs. No difference in looks, No swelling, No discoloration, No bumps, or any (seeable) physical change. No Pain during urination or ejaculation. No masturbation for months for the third or fourth major time Urinalysis after Urinalysis came back blank. >>>No Infection<<< No change in stress level. No change in work. No change in friends. No change in interest.
Avatar n tn i am now on the 4th day of the refill of diflucan, and once again, it seems like i'm going backwards in time, and the symptoms are still lingering and there seems to have been a climax in healing--and im just not getting over this thing...it's driving me nuts... I did recently have an std test for everything except herpes...i came back clean...
Avatar n tn I have been to about 30 doctors- including ENT's allergists, neurologists, chiropracters, opthamologists. psychologists, dentists and everything else u can think of. All CT scans, MRI of brain and blood work keep coming back clean and ok. Nothing I try seems to work. There was a period of time about 3 and a half years ago that the symptoms lifted for about 4 months and then it returned full force.
Avatar n tn It sounds like s/he is unaware of the newer available tests, which clearly can tell the difference between HSV-1 and HSV-2. If you cannot convince him or her otherwise, find another provider. An ObG with special expertise in infectious diseases would be a good place to start; or an actual infectious diseases specialist. Both kinds of specialists can be found in large metropoltian areas.
Avatar n tn I went to a GP, who, upon noticing cottage cheese discharge that I did't know was there, said I had a yeast infection and gave me diflucan. She swabbed the bump and it came back negative for herpes and other stds like chlamidia and bacteria. However, a test for yeast also came back negative. I went to an obgyn who did a wet mount and found multinucleated cells from a swab of my vagina/cervix. This lead him to believe I had herpes.
Avatar n tn I came to the doctor after approx 2 months of symptoms and was symptom free for only 2 weeks after taking diflucan and doxycycline. The second infection was a quick recurrence and I think KY might have been the offending agent because the infection was bad a few days after KY. This infection did not get better until I ended up taking 3 antibiotics in a row (doxy, zithro, and flagyl) and diflucan.
Avatar n tn In a year I used 6 flucanazole (diflucan) and 3 times Monistat (1 day doze and 3 day doze are not good. 7 day was ok), met 2 doctors, did all kinds of lab tests (a warning against tests- one gyn visit lab tests cost $3000, I was in shock. Fortunately, I have insurance and paid $300. The doctor seems to be not concerned and just prescribe diflucan. I have not other sickness than Candida Albicans. But the problem it comes back nearly ever month before my period. I did so much research on yeast.
Avatar n tn We are NOT having sex. Laura, what is the difference between regular yeast and this candida? I just thought they were the same. I will perform that test tonight, thank you. Please pray for my wife.
Avatar n tn I have had them before and would just get monostat and it would go away - not this time. I went to the doctors and she took a swab and prescribed diflucan. I had two prescriptions and the cream. Still didn't work. I was also eating plain yogurt and applying it down there which helped at the time but then the itching would come back - and I was so sore and swollen. I called the doctor again and they told me to get boric acid at the pharmacy.
Avatar f tn I took monistat which didn't work (it never does for me) and so I went to my primary who did a culture and came back positive for yeast. I took fluconazole, the issue resolved, and that was that. Because I decided that I didn't want to have sex without being in a committed, serious relationship anymore (all my partners have been monogamous) I decided to do STD testing so i could begin again with a "clean slate".
Avatar n tn I went to the doctor 8/15/07 complaining of itching,swelling,burning,redness, and a small red dot between my vagina opening and my anus. They tested me for a yeast infection and it came back positive...ive never had one of these...they gave me 1 pill --FLUCONAZOLE 150MG and a creme for all of the other things (redness,itching,etc.
Avatar m tn A study published in the Journal of Family Practice in February of 2005 showed that there was no difference between the patients who received an antibiotic and the patients who received a placebo. That’s just one study, but it does cast doubt on the effectiveness of short-term antibiotic treatment for mild acute sinusitis. Taking antibiotics also increases the chance that you can develop a drug-resistance strain of bacteria living in your upper respiratory tract.
529981 tn?1212853666 Also I have tried, salycylic shampoos, tar shampoos, jojoba oil, AND nothing seems to help. Please help me and my hair. I am a busy college student, who unfortunately does not have the time and money to deal with this.
Avatar n tn It had a refill on it so I called that in and just took that.
Avatar n tn Went to my doctor and and she told me I was allergic to monistat, gave me hydrocortisone cream and a diflucan. I took the previous poster's advice and douched several times with summer's eve with vinegar (vinegar is known to restore the pH balance, which a yeastie throws out of whack). I IMMEDIATELY felt so much better. That was around 11am, now, at 5, the swelling is down considerably and the burning/itching is almost completely gone. Stay away from monistat ladies!!
Avatar n tn Suddenly, its like a flood gate has opened, and that's even without an orgasm... so yeah, big difference between a yeast infection and vaginosis. If your poor and you can't see a doctor,maybe this will help: use anti-bacterial soap in the shower, if you use a loofah- chuck it and don't use a new loofah until you are infection free, put a little witch hazel or hydrogen peroxide on the toilet paper when you wipe (my mom swears by the witch hazel), keep using the yogurt- (make sure its plain!
Avatar m tn I had a recurrent balanitis for 1.5 years and everything started after a yeast infection. I took fluconazole and used ointments and nothing helped me, the red spots were still there. Finally I went to another Urologyst and he suggested me to circumsice my penis and after thinking so much about it I went for it. The redness cleared right after the surgery, More than a year since the operation and my penis still looks very healthy without any rash.
Avatar n tn well I just wanted to update on here since my last post, So I have been positive with this strep b for over 3 months and the itching and discharge are crazy, But as of last friday they started me on another antibiotic since the augmentin and levaquin didnt work, this one is called dicloxcillin 500mg and im takin it with diflucan 200mg, the dicloxcillin im takin it 4 times a day and i feel so much better!! the itching and discharge has STOPPED! for the first time in 3 months......
Avatar n tn Sit down on a bench or chair, put your head between your legs, and force yourself to breathe in deeply, and breathe out deeply. It's when the breathing gets to short and quick that the panic gets worse. At first you might feel like you can't do it, but with practice, you can. If you wear correctional glasses, take them off. For some reason sight plays into some peoples anxiety problems. Ok, now for when you are in an actual panic attack.
Avatar f tn If I scratch at all I wind up causing small cuts in the skin, which only serve to further irritate the issue. The skin between my vaginal opening and anus stays cracked and irritated which causes it to burn during urination. I am on a low hormone birth control pill, which doesnt seem to affect the problem either way, an I have done my best to avoid eating/drinking very much sugar, in the event that it could possibly be blood sugar related to no avail.
Avatar n tn when I have taken the amoxicillin in the past, so You would think if they were bacterial, that 2000mg of antibiotic would definitely get rid of whatever was causing it. There is no correlation between the cuts healing and the antibiotic. AND I was never one to get yeast infections (even from that much antibiotic at once), so at least for me, that's not it either. Hope we find an answer soon. Until then, good luck ladies.
