You have a person with vaginal candidiasis. She has a reaction to miconazole so the usual over-the-counter stuff can't be used. The other choices of Mycelex (which I think is clortrimazole) works... Read More

    Not an RN (yet) BUT...maybe I can help anyway! My son used to get terrible yeast infections--thrush and diaper area. He was allergic to nystatin and with the regular creams, the stupid stuff would come right back as soon as we quit applying it. Anyway, what was a lifesaver for us was Gentian Violet. I have used it for myself for vaginal yeast infections and it works...you just have to watch out for the purple staining. LOL Anyway, you can make sort of a mini-douche using gentian violet and some water, or you can use a tampon dipped in gentian violet. Usually one application is enough. Maybe that will help? If not--just ignore me...

    Gentian Violet hands down. Must wear gloves and stains EVERYTHING it touches, worse that Povidine-iodine.

    Thanks, all!! Just one question - can you get Gentian violet over the counter??
  10. by   memphispanda
    I got it (gentian violet) at Wal-Mart. They had to order it--took a day I think. It was OTC, but behind the counter. It was under $5 for a bottle that was about 2oz--and a little of that stuff goes a very long way.

    The yogurt remedy is supposed to be with the "LIVE" yogurt so the ones displayed on the wonderful full page colored ad, just won't make the grade....
    So that makes it really ineffective with the "fruit".
    Viva the difference!!!!!

    no, actually, dannon & yoplait both do contain live and active cultures...although an Stonyfield Farms, an organic yogurt contains one of the highest amounts of the bacteria on the market...
