I thought it had cleared up and today it is back. I want to cry!!
The regular 3% hydrogen peroxide which you see sitting on the pharmacy shelves will kill a certain number of bacteria, but has no effect against a fungus such as Candida albicans. There are theories and studies concerning H2o2’s ability to destroy Candida, but the studies were done with food grade 35% H2o2 and not 3% peroxide.
Winemom, neither hydrogen peroxide nor Diflucan will cure Candida.
