Ask Your Health Question and Get an Answer ASAP
Hello Chinonye ,I am Dr. Arun and I would be helping you today.Did your culture test show E. coli infection.Do you have vaginal yeast infection?
Boric acid wash for vagina can be used in resistant cases, as an alternative measure with the consultation of your physician. A specific culture; Nickerson or Sabouraud mediums should be performed in refractory or recurrent cases of vaginal candidiasis to confirm the infection. So you can talk to your doctor to get this culture before you start the treatment.
Women who do not improve with above can use, clotrimazole 500 mg vaginal suppositories administered once per week for six months which is also effective.
Also avoid (if you do) following;
1) panty liners,
3) sexual lubricants
I would be happy to assist you further, if you need any more information.
Thanks for using Just Answer.
If I understood correctly
1) fluconazole 150 mg every day for 3 doses
2) followed by fluconazole 150 mg every month for 6 months
clotrimazole 500 mg vaginal suppositories administered once per week for six months.
Then for E.Coli - Ciprofloxacin, Co-trimaxazole, Gentamicin.
