Help after long term yeast

Hello Ladies,

I just wanted to ask a question. I recently had a 8 mo yeast infection. My gyno could no longer deal with it and sent me ti Infecious Dieases. they ended putting me on an IV drug for 4 weeks called Candadis. That worked ... YEA! but 9 isn't there always a but) I know seem to have a residue (can't come up with a better word) It is all external. No internal at all like with yeast. You know how when u take a shower or get out of a pool and you have that skin that comes off. That is what this is like. Has no order or color and I have been tested yet again for yeast and bacterial infections and also went the whole 9 yards with having a full STD study done. All came back clean. So nobody has any idea what this is. I have no dryness or itching ,burning nothing like that . Just this reesidue. Dose anyone have any Idea on what this could be and how to get rid of it?

As for all your help with my yeast. Thank you so much. I did find relief with many of your ideas!!!!!!

Take care and looking forward to a sex life yet again ... woo hoo!

Help after long term yeast

Hi Beany,
Wow! You sound just like my (Big Sis) friend I made here. I don't know what it could be, and neither does your dr., from the sounds of it. I will talk to my friend and ask her about it. Maybe she can help you. take care and start enjoying your new life!

Dear Beany, I can't help you with the residue but am certainly interested in the results you have had with your infection. I am "big sis" to Kim - we met on this site and have been through hell together - supporting each other all the way. I have been on Diflucan for 11 weeks (1 x 125mg tablet per week) and have 16 more (1 x 125 mg tablet per fortnight) to go. The last swab showed some was still there but not allarmingly so - my gyno was quite pleased and so was my GP (he caused it all with overprescription of antibiotics for infections I never had!). I have been extremely sick with the candida and my emotions gave out so I am on an antidepresant also. I have a better attitude now, have forgiven the GP and am trying to get on with my life and enjoy our 7th g/child who arrived last Tuesday. I do have a head cold right now which causes me to be dizzy when I lay down, but I will get over that. What med. did your Dr. give you before you saw the infectious diseases person? And what is Candadis - is it did you have to be in hospital for the IV or did you do that as an outpatient at a given time each day - the gyno told me that no amount of topical treatment (my gp had tried GyneLotrimin, Diflucan cream and a heap of other stuff to rectify his mistake and nothing worked until I saw a gyno who specialises in vulvodynia and he diagnosed severe candida - said it would take a while to fix it. Maybe your "residue" is just a side effect of the medication - they all seem to have some side effect. I do hope you are feeling well now. I'd be most interested in what you can tell me about the treatment which worked for you. Thanks, and many hugs.
