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?

yes

Hello Chinonye,

A culture test usually tells about the best antibiotic which is most efficacious. Ciprofloxacin, Co-trimaxazole, Gentamicin are the best antibiotic to treat it.

Some women experience chronic recurrent vulvovaginitis (chronic yeast infection), which often require long-term or prophylactic oral azole therapy for control. So for that, the recommended regimen is fluconazole 150 mg every other day for 3 doses, followed by weekly fluconazole 150-200 mg for 6 months. This regimen abate the symptoms and prevents further recurrence in majority of women.

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,

2) pantyhose,

3) sexual lubricants



Please feel free for your follow up questions.

I would be happy to assist you further, if you need any more information.

Thank you.

If I understood correctly

1) fluconazole 150 mg every day for 3 doses

2) followed by fluconazole 150 mg every month for 6 months

or

clotrimazole 500 mg vaginal suppositories administered once per week for six months.

Then for E.Coli - Ciprofloxacin, Co-trimaxazole, Gentamicin.

Chinonye

This is absolutely correct.

It is privilege assisting you.

I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
