Yeast infection after taking diflucan?

I had a yeast infection so my doctor gave me diflucan and told me to take another dose 3 days later.

I did.

But I still had irritation, everything was raw and hurt. I chalked it up to being just a bad yeast infection but it didn’t go away so I finally gave up and I’m day 4 of a 7 day course of vaginal cream.

The irritation is gone.

So what the hell? Diflucan has always worked for me, why didn’t it work this time? Total fluke or will it not work in the future?

I dunno.  I've always treated my yeast infections with monistat and betadine douches.  I clear them up in 3 days.

if you take diflucan a lot your body can become somewhat immune to it just like any other med.

i personally think there are much better ays to clear them up than using a RX med.

Sometimes they can be super stubborn. Or the diflucan just doesnt work. Are you pregnant? I always just use yogurt or probiotics unless its super bad.

I’ve take diflucan 3 times. Once last year and maybe once the year before and then this time.

I don’t like the messy creams and the one day treatment has in the past burned the crap out of me

No, not pregnant.

I am taking a probiotic but just not regularly. It has to be in the fridge so I forgot more times than I end up taking it.

Wow, you get a lot of yeast infections.  Have you tried looking into the cause of why you're getting so many?

Me too. Monostat used to sell these flat tablets.  I liked those.  They didn't burn at all.  The last time I had a yeast infection (it was years ago) I used the wax suppositories.
