Hi practo user, Fungal infections most commonly occurs when the sugars r deranged.so please control sugars properly then only with antifungal treatment it can be treated. Meet gynaecologist so that after examination treatment to be given.
I can understand your concern.
Fungal infections are common in diabetics if the sugars are not in control.
You havent mentioned where does she have fungal infection?
She can apply candid dusting powder if its on the skin.
If its a oral thrush, she can use candid buccal paint.
If its a vaginal one, she can use tab. Candid vaginal tablets.
She needs to insert one tablet inside the vagina once a day for 7 days.
Consult a gynaecologist in person for further evaluation and management.
Best regards. Dr. Anil kumar jain. Bangalore.
Sugar control is must and need to consult your gynecologist for fungal infection.
