Anyone ever taken Diflucan for a yeast infection and had it not work?
I get frequent yeast infections for a couple of reasons- I take a low dose antibiotic 2-3 times a week for another health problem, and I run 4 days a week wearing cotton/spandex tight shorts. Add to that the normal summer sweating and occasional swimming and I’ve had at least 2 since May. Because of the antibiotic I have a prescription for Diflucan as well, but lately it hasn’t worked when I use it. I usually have to use a OTC treatment for like 3-7 days as well. I’ve even tried taking 2 Diflucan a day or two apart, and that didn’t work either. Has this ever happened to anyone else?
I know all the stuff about how to prevent yeast infections; in fact I answered someone yesterday with a lot of detail about that from my experience. But I’m sick of the messy OTC treatments when the Diflucan is supposed to do the trick.
(Also, I can’t change the tight shorts thing. I’m thick in the thighs and if I don’t wear the biker-style shorts I get really chaffed.)
