Hello and welcome. I'm Dr. Chip

A few questions first--are you male or female?

What kind of yeast infection and has it been treated?

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
I am a female. It's a vaginal yeast infection
Customer: replied 1 month ago.
Im currently taking diflucan once a week.
Expert:  tazechip replied 1 month ago.

So sorry for the delay.

Are you certain it's a yeast and not a bacterial infection?

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
my OB did a culture and said it was a yeast infection
Customer: replied 1 month ago.
Should I continue taking the diflucan?
Expert:  tazechip replied 1 month ago.

Ok. You have a particularly resistant type of yeast infection and, were I your doctor I would treat you like this--

100mg orally per day of ketoconazole for six months followed by 150 mg once a month of the Diflucan for three months.

That should take care of your problem and you need to ask your doctor about my suggestions.

Please let me know if you need any more information.

I will follow your advise Dr. Thank you very much!
