Based on your description, treatment of candidiasis do take a while to fully resolve. This infection of the vagina will present with typical white and fishy odour discharge from the vagina. To further help you with this problem, there are several general methods that you can follow such as:

  • Take the anti-fungal medications - whether by mouth or vaginal insertion. You have to get this from pharmacy or doctor
  • Do not clean your vagina with soap water or too vigorously. This can kill the natural bacteria that can help fight the infection
  • Wear a cotton and loose underwear for comfort
  • If needed, you may take anti-scratching medications
  • Always change the underwear

If the conditions still persist despite all the actions taken, you may refer back to your doctor or you may also click on this link (DoctorOnCall) to speak with our doctors online for free.
