Question Asked:

"Hello docs, I treated for staph infection and candida with inserts, antibiotics, & anti fungal drugs for what the lab test says and the symptom of excessive discharge I felt respectively, half way into the treatment, the excessive discharge stopped and started two weeks later after I was done with the medication, I went for test bcos of the excessive discharge, the lab test said only candida... But for the past 1week, I haven't had excessive discharge and I didn't take medication. The pharmacist that treated me is still disputing the last lab test saying he was sure he treated me with the right drugs. Please do I go ahead and respond to the lab test of candida despite the excessive discharge has stopped for over a week now. Thank you "

    Hello. You may have had a re-infection. Do you have a sexual partner? He may need to be treated as well. I'd also advice you repeat the Swab sensitivity test, possibly in another Lab. That way, you'll know for sure. All the best now.
