Fluconazole resistant candida

Common Questions and Answers about Fluconazole resistant candida


Avatar f tn It shows that fungi and yeast are both getting resistant to the fluconazole and other anti-fungals that end in azole so the Terbinafine (Lamisil) is the alternative treatment. It is safe to put on the penis, and groin area externally as a cream or spray. For yeast they can give Terbinafin (Lamisil) or Amphotericin B if you are resistant to the other treatments, but that is harder on you and not a topical or if they have one it would be a prescription.
Avatar m tn but maybe not sytemic candida but i have to have somew kind of candida, depression, anxiety, headaches, toe and penis fungal infection, idk high white blood count. I havent had bad anxiety since i started rtrying to cut sugar and carbs out of my diet, i also did the spit test and failed.
Avatar n tn I've had a resistant yeast infection for many months now. I've tried over-the-counter meds as well as the following prescriptions: Terconazole, fluconazole and now ketoconazole. I've tried yogurt and herbal remedies. I've been tested for diabetes and HIV. Does anyone have any experience with this? What else can I do? My doctor keeps putting me on the azole drugs. I've read that the type of yeast I have, candida glabrata can be reistant to these drugs.
Avatar f tn Is this oral or genital thrush? But, if it is Candida albicans, the most common yeast, it is often resistant to Diflucan (Fluconazole). If not the other yeast are very resistant to several anti-fungals. So it might be worth it to get it identified. Terbinifine (Lamisil) seems to work better than Diflucan if you can get it for your purpose. You may need a prescription for it. So I don't know if you want to go through having to go to the office to get the culture done and it may be C.
Avatar n tn so i also get frequent yeast infections....i ama 21 year old girl who simply CANNOT figure out why i get them. I have been having yeast infections ( 3 monthly) since i was 17! it sooo sux, i have been tested for HIV and std's but all come out negative. My question is why do we get these...i hate the fact that this is so normal for me now....its been 5yrs and now if im not discharging i think some thing is werong( LOL) its silly but i would like an answer...my dr.
19413498 tn?1477673341 I have treated it with Ketaconazole creme, hydrocortisone creme, Fluconazole tablets, and now terbinafine HCL tablets and nothing has worked... I have read types of yeast infections (candida Glabrata) can be resistant to many of these drugs..The rash does not bother me a ton, I can live with it, its the ability to potentially pass it on that scares me and is causing me bad anxiety. My question is: after all these treatments, what kind of doctor can i see?
Avatar m tn I wanted to mention to you that you didn't mention what species of Candida you have. Many strains of Candida are resistant. Candida albicans is often resistant to fluconazole. So that may be why you still have it. So you may need something else to get rid of it. Where is your Candida? Still in the esophagus? I wonder if the Fluconazole didn't give you the arrhythmia? I got one from using another drug. You might ask a pharmacist if that is a side effect of the drug.
Avatar n tn I was diagnosed with balanite caused by candida albicans. I took one pill 150 mg fluconazole and I used ointment canesten (1% clotrimazol) daily for 17 days. 3 days after interrupting the use of canesten the fungus was back, so I used canesten for 10 more days. About a week into the treatment I started to have mild pain in the urethra while urinating. At first the pain was close to the tip of the urethra, after 2 weeks it advanced inside by about 1/2 -1 inches and became stronger. No discharge.
Avatar f tn It would be good to have them take a swab of the area to be sure. If it is Candida albicans it is becoming resistant to the antifungals like Fluconazole (those that end in azole) and so yours may be a resistant strain. You can try Terbinafine (Lamisil) cream instead. The steroid cream helps with the itch but can make the fungal infection worse. If you can try something else to stop the itching It would be good. As for the tongue it may be bacterial or fungal. I would get that cultured as well.
Avatar f tn Or, you can try to get tested for the specific type of Candida. There are different types such as Candida albicans, Candida dubliensis, Candida tropicalis etc. Candida dubliensis is the most resistant one. I would see your doctor and ask for a different type of treatment for it. The Lamisil usually works. As for the Staph it depends on what kind of staph whether it is important or not. So you need to find out which kind. Is it Staph epidermidis or Staph aureus. Ask them about that too.
Avatar f tn The coconut oil killed all the species and was as effective or better than the Fluconazole. It was most effective against Candida Albicans, being twice as effective as Fluconazole. You may still try the saline rinse, if the level of irritation and inflammation on the tongue is acceptable, as a topical symptom treatment option. Cheers!
Avatar n tn Further, the multiple antibiotics you have taken have led to recurring yeast infections finally leading to your Candida glabrata (if you treat repeatedly with fluconazole, something resistant to the fluconazole will grow- you need different therapy ā€“ Iā€™d try nystatin.) As for you bone and joint pain, I do not know that this is in any way related to your exposure or the organisims you have described. I hope these comments will be helpful to you.
Avatar f tn The doctor said it was bacterial vaginitis and Candida. I took antibiotic for a week and brought it back. She then gave me Diflucan and I took one pill and went away for a while. Although, July 1st I had sex and the *** went all the way inside. I could be pregnant, I don't know. Three days later after that, I got my period. My period ended and then got yeast infection again. I took another Diflucan this Sunday.
Avatar n tn Welcome to the STD forum. Unfortuately, this really isn't a good resource for your questions. It is clear you have no STD, which really is the only expertise we offer on this forum. When we have patients like you in our STD clinic, we refer them to gynecologists who specialize in infectious diseases. But I'll do my best. Itching and burning are common yeast infection symptoms, as you might know, and a positive culture for yeast has to be taken seriously in this situation. What kind was it?
Avatar f tn In the meantime try one that doesn't have fluconazole or diflucan as the yeast (Candida albicans) that most causes a vaginal infection is often resistant to this antifungal. Terbinafin is a good ingredient if there is one without azole at the end. Obviously, it is not good to have a persistant infection as it is not only irritating but may lower your immune system and if you got a break in the skin where you bleed it could potentially get into the blood stream (which would be dangerous).
Avatar n tn The test were done months after the contact, so if there were an anti-body to an STD it should have showed up. They gave me Clotrimazole and Fluconazole (Diflucan) twice. My urologist said it was balantis and I would be fine. Initially, I felt a little better, but it never went all the way away. Oh.....and when the burning sensation is bad, I feel an anal burning, scratchy feeling too. It never feels normal. So.... I still think I have a drug resistant yeast infection (albicans).
Avatar n tn The most common cause of vulvovaginal candidiasis (yeast infection) is named Candida albicans. However, up to 10% of cases are caused by Candida glabrata, a different kind of yeast. C. glabrata usually is resistant to all the "azole" antibiotics, including fluconazole (Diflucan), Tetrazole, and Gynazole. It sometimes responds to nystatin vaginal creams or tablets (Mycostatin, Nilstat, and other brands). Boric acid vaginal capsules also are usually effective.
1994720 tn?1352745833 My gynecologist is at a loss and tells me they've done everything. Though I tested positive for candida albicans I wonder if I also have a less common strain that is resistant to the azoles. I can't take it anymore. I am so uncomfortable. By the way, this is the first time in 20 years I've had a yeast infection and I'm 44.
Avatar n tn glabrata, which commonly is resistant to the garden-variety yeast medications like fluconazole. There is no such thing as lactobacillus overgrowth syndrome. Such claims aren't exactly quackery, because there is some controversy about it. But existance of the condition is not accepted by the majority of ObG infectious diseases specialists or vaginal infection researchers. Anyway, you say that cultures for lactobacillus were negative--so that suggestion doesn't make much sense anyway.
Avatar m tn I took probiotics, tried something called Zand Candida Cleanse, and started eating a lot of yogurt. My tongue seemed to return to a redder color and I felt somewhat better. My nasal drip also seemed to clear-up quite a lot. And tingling in my hands seemed to disappear. But it gets worse whenever I eat sugars, breads diet or regular soda, or go without sleep for a long period of time ā€“ all the symptoms return. Showers are the only thing that seem to help.
Avatar f tn It also has some anti-candida effect, and it says when combined with fluconazole (Diflucan), it works well on Diflucan strains of the yeast. I hadn't heard of taking Xylitol, although I have taken Stevia in the past. I felt a bit crummier for the first month of taking Stevia. Later I read that Eva Sapi had seen it kill some spirochetes and cysts in the lab. I figured the extra fatigue and brain fog I had was the die off. After that eased up, it didn't seem to benefit me anymore.
Avatar m tn I also just had the results of Candida culture in stools. And I got this result which I do not understand. "Growth of Candida spp.
Avatar n tn I was cultured and laurels of candida non-albicans showed up . She also noteiced I had no lactobacillus bacteria. Then they treated me with fluconazole (50 mg) for 7 days + clotrimazole. No effect.Then they tried Nizoral, it didn't work again. I was tested for BV probably 10 times, all my tests come as negative. I am 22 and have never been sexually active. I have been tested for STDs at least 5 times though (all tests were negative). I was also tested for diabetes and UTI, all negative.

Avatar f tn FYI the strains that are resistant to the usual antibiotics for yeast are Candida glabrata, Candida prapsilosis, Candida tropicalis, and Candida krusei. Sometimes these can be resistant to the stronger anti-fungals as well. So are you bedridden for so long due to chronic fatigue or pain or both. What is going on there?
1124121 tn?1267139338 Ok so I have been suffering from recurrent thrush for the past 18 months and every time I go to the doctor I get the usual Canestan pessary, clotrimazole cream or fluconazole tablets. I went back to the doctors with this 3 months ago and I asked for some swabs as I was concerned that the infection wasn't fully clearing. The swabs came back fine so I am getting a new infection of thrush every month.
Avatar n tn As you suggest, the lack of prompt response to miconazole and fluconazole (Monistat and Diflucan) suggests that yeast may not be the primary problem. However, some yeasts are not susceptible to those drugs. Most yeast infections are due to Candida albicans, which is susceptible; but some infections are caused by C. glabrata, which often is resistant to the azole drugs. So if not yet done, you need a culture for yeast--not just a micrscopic test--to see if you have C. albicans, C.
Avatar n tn His prostatitis is very unlikely to be due to you, and more likely to be from him having a long running untreated yeast infection - but you could be both just reinfecting each other with the candida organism that causes the infection. I recommend treatment for both of you, and of course using condoms in the mean-time.
Avatar n tn One other thought is that if you are using an over the counter medication or even a prescription one yeast are becoming resistant to the ones that end in azole. Such as fluconazole. Usually you can see the chemical name in the ingredients. So you can use terbinafine (Lamisil) if changing out some of the habits above don't work.
Avatar n tn my g/f was diagnosed with vaginal yeast infection about 5 days before June 10, and was successfully treated was one single dose of Diflucan (fluconazole). -June 17, i went to a family doctor and told him that i had the itch for one week. He precribed me Levaquin 500 MG and i took it for 10 days. He said, the penis has some kind of minor infection, just take the medicine, go home and don't worry about it. well, i did exactly what my doctor told me to.
