    hello,it is likely vaginal candidiasis people call yeast infection.she should however do high vaginal swab to confirm the diagnosis.she will need antibiotics which are antifungal.

    yes it is still vaginal candidiasis.high vaginal swab test is done to know what organism is causing the disease.A swab sample is taken from the vaginal with a small stick and then cultured at the laboratory.After that,she can get cap fluconazole 150mg single dose and then apply mycoten cream to the itchy area twice a day after baths.counsel her to wear clean lose undies for now to allow aeration of the area,have safe sex with condom or abstain ( if sexually active).then retrieve the test result for review later.but she should have done the test before commencement of drugs.

    hello,fleming is augmentin.it wont work and its not necessary for this kind of condition.i wouldnt know what caused the menstrual flow to last for a month and weeks unless i interact with her.let her run the test and then start those drugs and instructions as stated earlier.
