Thrush: get rid of or put up?


Burning and itching of the vulva,white cheesy discharge from the vagina, pain during sexual intercourse, pain during urination - about three-quarters of the female population of the planet at least once in their lives experienced the excessive multiplication result into the vagina of the genus Candida fungi [1]. It seems to be not so terrible yeast infection, a serious threat to health can not be held, moreover, the assurances of commercials, thrush can easily treat the most - three days and it "! Is gone" A month back symptoms and a pill or a candle, and it again "is gone!". And then life becomes a bad dream in which you are more and more immersed in the uncomfortable problem of the most intimate sphere of the body, avoid sex, you begin to hate your body unlucky, who can not cope with such a trifle.

And here to help fly a host of folkhealers and counselors of all samples, and they say the right words that we need to increase the body's defenses, and offer ways of anti-inflammatory herbal to conspiracies and spells. Something on time helps, but it takes several weeks, and renewed itching with cheesy discharge herald the next victory gained mushrooms.

Maybe see a doctor? But how often from the lips of a gynecologist heard the same recommendations, known to us by commercials, the advice of friends, the Internet and other sources of medical information and Semi-Medical. This final disappointment in the fight against thrush often leads us to a dead end. Is the medicine is powerless even in dealing with such a simple task?

Of course, not all women with thrush, or ascall it in medical circles, vulvovaginal candidiasis, are described by the circles of hell. But in 10-20% of cases of vulvovaginal candidiasis is complicated by the nature and kind of Candida fungi, have the right to live as part of the normal microflora of the mouth, vagina and colon, multiply with surprising regularity, leading to the re-emergence of symptoms of thrush. If such acute symptomatic disease episode for the year recruited no less than four, the doctor should put the diagnosis "chronic vulvovaginal candidiasis." But who will take the frequency of episodes of thrush? The patient self-help. Prompt gynecologist, he has to deal with the mushrooms, well-seasoned in battles with other microorganisms and medicines, so deal with them in the usual way is impossible.

Meanwhile, the method of getting rid of chronic,recurrent four or more times a year, there is vulvovaginal candidiasis. It is described in the scientific literature contained in international clinical guidelines and proven to be effective in numerous studies, both in Russia and other countries. It is not difficult, but to use it, you have to really want to get rid of yeast infection.

There is an effective drug that inhibits the growth of fungi at a single dose in most women [2]. It is well known and widely prescribed fluconazole (original fluconazole - "Diflucan®"). Sometimes (when expressed symptoms of thrush) require a "heavy artillery" - namely, to enhance the therapeutic effect, it is recommended to increase the duration of the treatment, to fluconazole (Diflucan drug®) - A second receiving means 150 mg capsuleinwardly through the first 3 days after the [3]. If we are dealing with a chronic yeast infection, caused by the fungus Candida albicans, then the return of the symptoms, it is recommended even stronger "strike at the enemy," and the drug Diflucan®Usually effective reception three capsules of 150 mginwardly at intervals of three days (day 1,4, and 7) [4]. But that's not all! The problem is that the complete removal of fungi from the body can not be achieved by any drug, and do not need: they are - an integral part of it. The suppression of their excessive growth when receiving one or even two or three capsules of fluconazole achieved for 1-2 weeks, followed by a gradual resumption begins populations of fungi, ending recurrent thrush. But you can not wait for this new relapse and maintain suppression of fungal growth weekly intake of fluconazole in the hope that the fungi in the end, bowed his head to a stronger and more patient adversary. The duration of such overwhelming, Medical "suppressive" terminology, treatment, worked out by years of research, and is currently the recommended course of weekly fluconazole is 6 months. The main result of the treatment is recognized not so much the absence of episodes of vulvovaginal candidiasis in the application of the drug, how long, for a year or more, the lack of renewal of thrush after treatment. Insidious this recurrent situation IHC caused by C.albicans, lies in the fact that the yeast in most cases, symptoms begin to fade after receiving the first capsule on the second day [5], and after leaving the majority decision third Diflucan capsules of 150 mg on day 7 of treatment [4], we call this stage of therapy, "Attack." But to extend the "life without relapse" thrush after the "attacks", it is important not to give up treatment, and to continue the so-called "suppressive therapy," we call this phase of the treatment phase of the "Cruise", since otherwise the efforts may be in vain and repeated episodes of compulsive disease is not take long. It should be well understood, as any of us are psychologically difficult to force yourself to regularly drink drugs to prevent something, when we are feeling fine, but this treatment only to avoid problems in the future. As mentioned above, the phase of "Cruise" lasts 6 months and the drug Diflucan® 150 mg weekly is required for receptionthis time period [4]. We have to help as a reminder that we are in the conditions of modern life rhythm comply with a doctor's prescription regimen, Pfizer offers to send e-mail and / or sms-alert. For such notification is sufficient to subscribe to sms-mate online.

This, of course, are not limited to the necessary steps,able to curb the fungi Candida. It is known that they contribute to the growth of abnormal eating habits (sweet tooth), antibiotics, abrupt climate change, severe emotional stress, diabetes, bacterial and viral infections. Consequently, a healthy lifestyle, proper nutrition, and timely treatment of disease will also help to contain fungi. But some of these measures, without a suppressive therapy, is not enough. First, you need to demonstrate the fungus outside their allowable growth, and only then to maintain the achieved results.

So, get rid of the fungus is not possible, butto get rid of yeast in our power. In the end, we allow fungi to settle in your body, but has the right to demand from them respect for our interests, and not to turn the body into a testing ground for periodic military operations, better once and for all one course of suppressive therapy taught mushrooms to live peacefully in the space provided to them .
