Is It Safe To Take Diflucan If You’re Not Sure If You Have A Yeast Infection

Is it safe to take Diflucan if you’re not sure you have a yeast infection? In a word, no. You cannot start using any anti fungal drugs on yourself if you’re not sure what infection you have. What you must do is go and see your doctor for a correct diagnosis before you use any type of anti fungal drug. That is an oral drug or a cream that you can purchase over the counter.

Recurrent yeast infections in women are on the increase because they are using yeast infection treatments such as Diflucan and Monistat when they don’t need to. If you don’t have an infection then these treatments can actually cause one, and it will be one that is drug resistant so you’ll have a difficult time curing yourself.

Candida lives in you all the time

The Candida yeast that is the start of a yeast infection lives in you all the time. It is being kept under control by friendly bacteria in your body. If you start using Diflucan when you don’t have a yeast infection you’ll be exposing the Candida to the drug. WHen the drug doesn’t work first time ( because you don’t have a yeast infection ) you’ll then try it again. WHen the Candida gets exposed to the treatment too many times you actually force it to mutate. And when it does it’s going to mutate into am aggressive fungus that is resistant to the drug.

So if you don’t have a yeast infection, and you have another infection, you’ll now have two infections. If the original infection requires antibiotic treatment then when you’re treating that infection the antibiotics are going to make your drug resistant yeast infection worse. If the antibiotics don’t cure your original infection because it was left too long before the correct treatment was used than you’ll need a second course. And then your yeast infection is going to get worse, and it will definitely be in your intestines at this point.

See your doctor first

Before you start using any drug treatment on your vaginal infection you need to get a correct diagnosis from your doctor. Only your doctor can test you first to see what infection you have.
