  • Viola! I KNOW i have this latent infection. Cultures are always negative but i havent had a biopsy or scrapongs yet. Canadian drs dont know enough about this to help me treat it. They say its super rare or havebt heard of it then change the subject!! They tell me maybe my nerves are "wound up" or pinched. I tried 3 types of antifungals, then swabbed negative for yeast, then tried a 4th kind and was instantly better, then it came back and no short term yeast treatments worked again. Its been 4 months now and im so uncomfortable i cant stand it. I know you posted ages ago but im crossing my fingers you will respond. How did treatment go?? What can i do to get better? Did this infection show up on yiur biopsy?? Im holding off on the biopsy because i want it to be done properly and i feel i need more info to tell the dr what to do. Please respond! Im desparate for help!!

    • Been dealing with a yeast infection since May 3rd, 2023. In June it got into my mouth causing oral thrush. I’ve been on fluconazole and Itraconazole for months. And high doses too. As soon as I stop taking medication the symptoms return within a few days. I’m am now using boric acid nightly, using nystatin suppositories in the morning and a vaginal probiotic in the afternoon. Along with CanXida pills, estrogen balancing pills, liver cleanse, immune boosting pills (all from Naturopath).
      I’m on a strict diet. No sugar no alcohol no gluten no yeast.

      Been called crazy by two (out of 6) doctors but finally have been referred to infectious disease. Waiting on appointment. Been to ER twice because I couldn’t take it anymore. Al tests come back negative for yeast because I’ve been on medication. Waiting on a Gyno appointment, which is taking forever.
      it’s driving me crazy. I have good and bad days. But I’m itchy, uncomfortable and layers of yeast also build on my tongue and my inner cheeks feel weird all the time.

      anyone survive this? Anyone know the cure?

      • Has anyone found the cure? I know these posts were years ago but if any of you struggling with this has been cured. Please let me know how you did it.

        • Recurring yeast infections can be frustrating and debilitating. Consider seeing a specialist for comprehensive testing, as underlying issues might be missed. Meanwhile, maintaining a balanced diet, avoiding irritants, and wearing breathable cotton underwear may help. For persistent issues, fertility counselling can provide guidance on managing symptoms and exploring alternative treatments to improve your overall reproductive health.
