I agree systemic treatment has got to be superior: I have some tablets winging their way: in the meantime however I have started with the cream.
As a matter of interest, although I see by a "slip of the tongue" you referd to its antibiotic effect (when it clearly is anything but, given it is an antifungal, and its method of action by being a specific enzyme inhibitor makes it 100% irrelevant to bacteria) -- it made me think, can these problems be created by bacterial infection, and if so, how would one know? Is it just that in practise it's yeast (or at least fungal in a broader sense) 99.9% of the time, hence your (and indeed clearly many other Doctors') empiric emphasis on anti fungal preparations ?
Just curious... ?
BTW the head of my little friend doesn't seem so angry today, but I find it hard to beleive the anti fungal cream can have done anything so swiftly given its only been 24 hours, but who cares, feeling less angry is only good
. In your experiences (Jim et al), can one see reduction in soreness that swiftly ? I thought from my googling genital fungal infections were relativley slow to clear up, apart from vaginal thrush ...? Anyway, I'm certainly not about to stop treating for a fungal infection, as cleary I want to rule out any possibility of a yeast infection screwing up "the main feature", but as always I'm curious to understand what I'm experiencing.
