OB/GYN folks...People who know that "area", c'mere...

  1. 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 poorly. What do you suggest that doesn't require a prescription? Any old time remedies we can recommend to this person?

    Ny statin? I've also read somewhere that yogurt with active cultures inserted vaginally can work, but have only seen it once, and I don't think it was a medical source.

    without fruit.... the plain kind without sugar or flavoring.... the kind that looks like clotted cream.

    Actually, I was just trying to help Sunnygirl out by giving her a visual reference because the yogurts were confusing her.. I knew Sunny would remember clotted cream because she turned down the dinner invitation at my house but really Whisper was the first to mention it.

    According to the yogurt research by Sunny it looks like the Go- Gurt would be the EASIEST to use. It doesn't even need an applicator. Good work, Sunny. :kiss
