... dr visit/diagosis 4 days ago. took 150mg fluconazole 3.5 days ago. symptoms have gotten slightly better but mouth still somewhat dry, tounge still rough and tender. vaginal area very sore, red and swollen, extremly tender at top opening very painful to wipe after urination. there is still a discharge. minor iching if any. doctor advise is questionable (see review cephalexin) planning on follow up with alternate dr. Monday. Can refill meds today for second dose. Should I redose?? try a cream?? been eating yogurt (YUCK!!! ) two or three a day for 6 days. NEED RELIF AND INTIMACY WITH SPOUSE. condom not an option-sensitivity to latex. already made that mistake. could that be compounding problem. please talk this through with me
Hopefully by now your symptoms have improved. Often with oral fluconazole it can take several days after finishing for your symptoms to clear. The dose you have taken should have been enough to treat you and re dosing unnecessary.
An antifungal cream may help with your symptoms but probably unnecessary as the fluconazole takes effect.
Lastly, if you are sensitive to latex then the condom would have irritated your problem.
Hope this helps.
