Yes, Boric Acid is broad spectrum and fungicidal. It will kill all candida species as well as Gentian Violet does. You can “cure” the vagina inside with Gentian Violet directly and avoid the douches.
Gentian Violet is one of the things that kill the fungus very fast.
However, topical therapies don’t work when the yeast has gone INTRACELLULAR. You need a systemic drug (blood stream way) to reach the cells inside. There is nothing that penetrates the cells if it isn’t going by blood as a carrier. Until the intracellular infection be there, there isn’t cure.
The treatment must be both intra and extra cellular.
Treating chronic candida is difficult and people need education to win the battle.
Long term treatments are also necessary since current oral antifungals are fungistatic.
