I only took nystatin topically and it cured the problem then my symptoms returned as soon as the 10 day course ended. Second time around of topical nystatin didnt work. I have no rectal skin irritation, but i do have a sore tummy and bowel issues. Drs seem to dismiss this as stress due to my “vulvadynia” that they seem to think is ” mysteriously overactive nerves.” But i jist know this is my familiar enemy yeast. My raw itchy skin started suddnly like yeast for no apparent reason.
I did have a skin scraping done about a month ago, but it came back negative. Possibly because it was taken on the outer edge of the affected areas, and the lab wasnt specifically looking for intracellular yeast.
Id like to treat myself long term for yeast but i need the help of a dr for that, and i probably need a positive skin scraping. Im so scared the next scraping will come back negative:(
You need a Dr that checks your liver enzymes during your treatment. Every month.! Your vulvadynia is your intracellular candidiasis. There are hundreds of women living with this condition because most Drs are unaware of the cause.
I don’t think Danny has any intracellular candidiasis case. He is alerting you about a possible intestinal reservoir. There are links between yeast in the intestines and persistent or recurrent vaginal candidiasis. However, an intracellular infection needs an effective systemic drug or combination of them to be cured no matter if you target your intestines with a non-systemic antifungal. Targeting the intestines will eliminate an immune suppression focus. An intestinal overgrowth affects cell mediated immunity. After some immune restoration or balance, your immune system will be able to assist better the systemic antifungal to target other infectious focus such as your vulvar infection.
Hope this help you to understand. Anyway, you have only one way that is a proper treatment. The length of the treatment is because most oral systemic antifungals are fungistatic. If they were fungicidal, you probably need 15 days or less like most antibiotics. Unfortunately, antifungal drugs are very limited and most of the fungicidal are IV versions.
