I have recurring yeast...

I have recurring yeast infections. I am diabetic. Diflucan has helped in the past. However, I am not able to take it because if a drug interaction that may cause heart arrhythmia.

Doctor's Assistant: When was your last pap smear? Have you ever had an irregular pap?

My last Pap smear was 2 months ago. A yeast infection was identified. I did have an abnormal pap many years ago.

Hello, and thank you for choosing Justanswer about your concern. I’m Ted Manos M.D., board certified obgyn. I can respond by advising you to have a doctor that can diagnose what type of vaginal discharge or infection you have and choose the appropriate treatment. There are many different yeast preparations when it definitely is yeast. There is little else I can say when I know many patients thought yeast but couldn’t find the yeast.
