I’m just wondering because you recommended on another thread that for vaginal problems that a drug and local treatment was required.

I wonder what drug would you recommend?

I took flagyl years ago. It made no difference and might have even made my problem a little worse.

I see you didn’t understand me. Yes, I recommend Nystatin refrigerated powder if you can get it.

Nystatin is a non-systemic antifungal that only target the intestines. It doesn’t pass to the bloodstream in significant amounts to target fungal colonies outside the gut.

It is a good antifungal drug with high efficacy against candida albicans.

However, if you want to target the vagina, you need something locally that may be Nystatin cream or a systemic antifungal such as Diflucan, Sporanox, etc.
