I have had a yeast infection since the last week of February. They have put me on Diflucan, then Terazol when that didn't work. I got tested again last week and they are prescribing Diflucan again? Would it work this time if it didn't last? (The original visit I was cultured and it came back resistant to Diflucan, thus the Terazol applicator). As a side note, my most recent check also came back bv along with yeast! Help please! This is not a fun way to live, let alone have a happy sex life!!! :(
Hi! 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. Therefore, I would also consider using an anti-inflammatory such as cortisone to see if that would help with symptoms is treating the BV did not resolve the issue. Good luck! Dr B
