I have been struggling with yeast infections with at least mild symptoms almost nonstop since the beginning of December, after antibiotics. I have never had digestion issues or fatigue–my only symptoms are a good ole’ yeast infection that won’t go away! I’m just graduating college and have always had a relatively healthy diet, although I was partial to fruit.
To give context, here is my timeline:
I took antibiotics at the end of October and developed a yeast infection and later, oral thrush. Since then, I have been to multiple doctors and have tried Fluconazole (4 1-week rounds, though not consecutively), Triamcinolone Cream, Metronidazole cream, Terconazole cream, Boric Acid, and Triamcinolone Acetonide Cream. I used nystatin swish successfully the first time, but now the oral thrush is back and not responding to a 1-week dose Nystatin.
I have been taking probiotics since November, and I eased into the diet on March 14, and began a stricter diet by about March 25th. My diet includes coconut and almond flour, and a cup of green or matcha tea daily, but that’s the closest to “cheating” I get. I also tried Soloray “Yeast Away” for about a month, but it caused nausea and didn’t seem to help, so I laid off. My current probiotic is Klaire Labs Vital-10: [https://www.amazon.com/Klaire-Labs-Vital-10-Veggie-Capsules/dp/B001PYSP3Y/ref=sr_1_3_a_it?ie=UTF8&qid=1524331437&sr=8-3&keywords=vital+10+klaire+labs], although I have also been trying Plexus ProBio5 as my sister had some left over and I’m a broke college student.
I’m now searching for a new regimen. I have researched some positive things about Thorne Research Formula SF722, but am unsure what to pair it with (as I’ve heard it is important to have a multifaceted plan). I have also researched that it’s harmful to rotate/mix antifungals… So this causes me to want a thought-out plan, there’s just so much conflicting info! If someone could share their daily regimen and any links to research that lead them that direction, that would be so appreciated. Do I need enzymes? Special vitamins? Specific probiotics? Which antifungals? I’m currently trying to graduate and planning my wedding this June… Needless to say I’m ready to put this candida behind me!
Thanks in advance!

I take Candida Complex by Healths Harmony. A doctor who was treating one of my relatives had him on it. What’s interesting about the product is that it shares the same eleven ingredients — including their amounts — of other candida pills. I don’t know which company came up with the formula first. Look on the internet and you might find a cheaper alternative to the brand I suggested, although I consider the one I take inexpensive: $18.00 for a two-month supply.
