chronic vaginal yeast infectionI am a new mother (3 month old baby). and from delivery have had a severe case of vaginal yeast infection. The stitches and tear after delivery took extra long to heal and was said to be due to yeast (entire rectal skin was thin and had cuts and was bleeding)
Started with symptoms of burning, pain in the vulva and vaginal discharge - went to my doctors and was misdiagnosed as UTI and given antibiotics which worsened the problem (with white and yellow curd like substance on the outside in addition to the gel like white discharge.
Drugs given: flucanazole 800mg one a week for 2 weeks (yeast recurred after 4 days) and then on Tercanazole suppository for 3 days (discharge turned yellow)
Doctors said delay may be because I am still breastfeeding the baby.
SYMPTOMS PHYSICAL: pain the vulva, dryness and burning in the vulva and vagina, ocassional lower abdominal cramps, continuous discharge from vagina
Also see white discharge with the feces
pain increases early in the morning and late evenings
SYMPTOMS EMOTIONAL: Stressed (I get upset, stressed, emotional easily), tired. This continuous pain is now making me desperate and scared. I have not yet returned to normal after delivery.
I am always worried about what others will feel or say and think a lot. Am worried about my health and that of my loved ones.
I always had a tendency for blackheads and warts. And mild yeast but has increased after delivery and breastfeeding.
I have no trouble sleeping. Get tired very fast
FOOD: Am for some months having an aversion to Sweet foods. Like to easy salty, spicy foods. Always get a migraine attack when i skip or delay food intake and when weather changes.
GENERAL: frequenely suffer sinus related problems due to heat imbalance, get colds fast. do not like humid climates. Like to bath in hot water, hate cold water. always have cold feet and hot head.
HOMEO MEDS: have taken thuja 1M, one dose for this yeast infection a month back but have not noticed any improvement.
Kindly help me out with something that will completely cure this infection and is safe for use during breastfeeding.
Thankin you in advance

One dose means
If the medicine is in pills form 2 pills. Don't touch pills with hand. Use cap of bottle to take pills.
If the medicine is in liquid dilution form, 2 drops in some 20 ml water. Sip up slowly.
Please follow homeo restrictions like no coffee, no raw onion/garlic, no strong perfumes, don't eat or drink anything within 30 minutes before or after taking medicine.

Please read this other post where I have listed where to get probiotics.
You have to do the probiotics and stop sugar and high carb foods to
starve yeast and get the right gut flora back in there after antibiotics.
This does not interfere with any remedies.
