Vaginitis and candida infection which isn't clearing
Hi, I have had what could be thrush, I have been treating it for 6 days now and there has not been much improvement. I have used Betadine Douche daily when I bath, used Dalacin VC at night, even taken an oral dose of Diflucan. I have been eating yoghurt, cut down on sugary foods. Why won't this clear up? Do I need an anti-biotic? I also sufffer from UTI's and am worried that this could trigger off another UTI. I have Multiple Sclerosis and have always been prone to this since I took ill 11yrs ago.

If it has not responded to treatment, it may not be thrush but some other infection. I would suggest that you see your doctor to make a diagnosis.
