Vaginal yeast infection

Dear doctor, I had been diagnosed with vaginal yeast infection & vaginitis 3 months ago and was given the following prescription : FAS 3-kit for one day, Cansoft-cl for 3 consecutive nights & VWash which I still use. After 2 weeks, I felt better but the problem still persisted and I took another dose of FAS 3-kit and also visited my gynaecologist a month after the first appointment. She told me to consume a lot of fluids and maintain good hygiene. However, I feel the infection reccurs after I have my periods. Can I take another dose of flucanazole? What should I do for getting rid of this problem completely? Please help.

Hello.....A recurrent candida infection occurs when a woman has four or more infections in one year ,Recurrent yeast infections may be related to an underlying medical condition such as impaired immunity , longer courses of topical treatments, oral medications, always cleaning the genital area from front to back and changing out of wet bathing suits or damp clothes as soon as possible. Wear loose-fitting cotton underwear can help reduce moisture and prevent yeast infections.
