Fungal infection

Dear Doctor, I had visited a gynaecologist 2 weeks ago. I was diagnosed with fungal infection in and around my vagina, slight redness and swelling in inner labia and periniem. I was prescribed FAS-3 kit for one day, Cansoft CL vaginal suppositories for 3 consecutive days, V wash and Candid-B ointment for a week. I was doing well for sometime but I have started to have burning and itching once again along with some discharge. I also have discomfort while wearing panties or tight clothes like jeans and there is pain and swelling on the sides of the clitoris. Should I continue the medication and how? Please help.

Dear patient, You were given good treatment by your gynecologist but fungal infection is very resistant so if you Will take irregular treatment it will persist . Again consult your gynecologist ,she Will reexamine you put you on antifungal for 2 months.Also exclude diabetes and thyroid problem. Incidence of fungal infection rises in summer so maintain hygiene and wear cotton undergarments.
