With the question “Recurrent Candida infection what to do? ", the doctor would like to answer as follows:
Vaginal thrush is a common disease in women, caused by a fungus called Candida Albicans. When having candida in the vagina, it is often necessary to treat both husband and wife. After treatment, vaginal yeast infection often recurs, there are many reasons such as the patient not following the doctor's instructions when taking the medicine as well as in personal hygiene such as washing underwear with soap separately, drying in the sun. Before wearing to avoid fungal infections from underwear, do not have sex during treatment and when the medicine is over, you must examine and re-test according to the doctor's appointment.
You have recurrent vaginal yeast infections, you should see an Obstetrician-Gynecologist for an examination and effective treatment for you.
You often have swollen lymph nodes and pain in the neck are symptoms of some of the following diseases: Acute pharyngitis, chronic and tonsillitis, ... swollen lymph nodes are divided into 2 types: Benign and malignant nodes. If the swollen lymph nodes in your neck are benign, they can be easily treated. But if the lymph nodes are malignant, you should see an oncologist for an accurate diagnosis and examination.
If you still have questions about recurrent candida infections, you can go to a hospital of Vinmec Health System for further examination and advice. Thank you for trusting and sending questions to Vinmec. Wishing you lots of health.
